Poll
LiPo Battery Satisfaction Survey - just 5 quick questions...

This is a poll asking 5 quick simple questions:

1) What LiPo Brand/s would you buy again?
2) What LiPo Brand/s would you NEVER buy again?
3) What C rating would you buy again?
4) What caused the most failures?
5) What is the max number of cycles have got from your best pack?

Guys and girls, please go and vote, it should take less than one minute to finish: link to poll > http://pollmill.com/f/lipo-battery-s...s8evf.fullpage

The results will be shown just after you vote, but I'll post a link to the results here when there are a good number of answers.

This is/was just for my own interest but may end up may being of some value for all the "which LiPo is best" questions.

Calm down Ivaylo, your opposition is noted, thank you (and for answering the poll by checking every option - very mature!)

I'm not sure what the translation of "muster of mouses" is, perhaps explain a bit better?

The discussion you linked to only checks load test, I'd like to know different things...if you don't like what I asked, fine, no need to jump up and down.

Filled out Survey. Not much yet on Revolectrix. I gambled that they may be making a good pack...I'd appreciate any feed back and will post mine once I fly them.

Bumping this up a bit, some interesting trends are starting to show.

PLEASE go and answer the survey, it's only 5 quick questions about LiPo's... there's no advertising, no email addresses, no personal data required, just answer the quick questions.

Thanks

I don't really see how question #4 is pertinent, but I filled out the poll. I'll try to spread the word around.

Thanks, I appreciate it.
#4 is just to see what's causing LiPo's to fail.

NB, I have nothing to do with any manufacturer nor LiPo's apart from the fact I use them in my aircraft.

In the lead are Gen's Ace (11.7%) and Turnigy (9%), at the back are E-Flite and Turnigy Nano Tech.

A puffed pack is so far the greatest cause of all failures (30.4%)

Gen's Ace and Turnigy are still leading, E-Flite and Turnigy Nano-(puff)Tech are still the two to avoid.
30C is best choice and puffed pack and then one bad cell caused most failures
Please keep filling in the survey.
