Well, I only got about 40-50 cycles out of them. Never pulled more than 45-50 peak amps, more like 30 average, and always landed at 3.75 to 3.8V cell. I always checked the batts after each flight, and after 30 cycles or so, cell #6 would be 3.7V then after a few more flights, 3.6V. I'd fly them until #6 was 3.4V and saw a decrease in overall power for the whole flight. The bottom cell would be noticeably hot & puffed. I mean $30 was a steal at the time, but you get what you pay for I guess.

Maybe the mfr installed a bad cell in each pack and somehow they got to the U.S. No idea.

I've used a lot of Turnigy Blue 3S and 4S and never had a cell go bad like that. Generally all the cells degrade at the same time.
