Whats up with my old school packs??

I fly combat with a Unicorn almost weekly. I started with a 12 cell 1400 IB pack from Cheap Battery Packs. That pack lasted a few months. I then went to a 12 cell Elite 1500. Had a cell go bad a few weeks ago. Took it out and made 11 cell pack. Today I had one flight and then charged as normal and then put the pack in and thats when the smoke came out. See pic. The cells are all ok and show voltage of 1.39 or so. What gives. Why the short?

I am running the following
Unicorn Wing
2 HS-81 metal gear servos
1 CC 35 ESC
1 Berg Receiver
Warp 4 4 turn
Triton Charger

Always charged @ 1C at 1.5 or less.
Pulling 18-22 amps at full throttle but I never go full throttle as we do combat & 1/2 throttle is perfect.
