Turnigy - bought some more last night from US warehouse (6S 4000, 6S 5800). Shipping was $ 0.01 Have a couple of the Nanos, but don't like them.

I was buying GensACE, but they've been inconsistent lately with mismatched cells, so I'm going back to SkyLipo.

Ditto, I had a bad one a month ago and the replacement was even worse. Thunder Power from Amain Hobbies

I received a Gens Ace pack with mismatched cells but after a few cycles it seems to be staying in balance. We'll see how long it lasts though.

If you want cheap (cost) batteries, then HK or one of their divisions is your best bet. It's not that the batteries are inferior quality compared to others, but it's the lack of QA that can burn you. Some don't care because the packs are so cheap, which is why many people order several at a time. I've seen several people use Turnigy-branded batteries in high-end EDFs and 3D helis without issue.

Gens Ace batteries at HobbyPartz for me. Close to 30 now and all have been great.

SPC - Spec Point Concepts - http://www.spcracing.com/

I have owned and used LiPos from HK/Zippy, Trinity, Venom and SPC.

For the price, speed of shipping, warranty, and customer service, you cannot beat SPC. Tom is an absolute genius when it comes to Nimh and LiPo and he has always answered the phone or emailed me back with answers to my questions within 30 minutes.
