The Kokams work well so far. I check the voltage of each cell after a flight, and occasionally balance individual cells using my Schulze set on output 2 (high voltage sensitivity), which can be a time consuming practice. With LiPos the trick is to keep the series cell count low so you don't run into serious un-balance problems.

I also have a few Polyquest packs, and they seem to work well for lower currents. At higher currents (>12C) the PQ pcb board tends to melt.

A few people at my field fly with Thundepower gen 2 cells, and they seem quite happy with them too. A few are trying the new tanics 2220 with mixed results.
