I've been using the Zippy Compacts and so far have had zero issues with them. I'm relatively gentle with my batts and typically my flight times are set to only drain them to 70%. I charge at 3c and with 5 batteries can fly all day without pushing them hard at all. While I'm sure there are other batteries as good or better I'm more comfortable buying more of a less expensive battery. Yes, I am cheap! As long as the batteries I purchase function properly and last a reasonable length of time then I'm happy. I also feel that how hard you push the cheaper batteries has a direct effect on their life.

One other thought could in fact be the charger. Even if the charger has enough output to charge the batteries it's the balance amps that determine how quickly they can charge while balancing them. I'm sure someone esle could probably explain this in more detail but the time a charger takes to balance charge is greatly effected by how much mah it can pull out of the higher cell.
