A short update.... The Sky Lipo has not stayed very balanced as time goes on. After having sat at storage voltage for anything more than a couple of days and the low cell drops .08v-.1v below the other 2 cells. With such a large difference it's hard for my charger to balance the cells before it stops charging because it reaches it's charge rate/5 cutout. I've also had to remove it from parallel charging as I see it pulling down the same cell in the Gens Ace pack.

I'm not ready to make a conclusion on the Sky Lipo brand based on this one pack, it could be just that, this one pack is a bad apple. I will pay attention though, and see if others do well with their packs, or if Sky possibly has some quality control issues if others have similar issues.
