China hobby line lipos

Hey guys want to get some opinions on these lipos
I bought at least 12 last winter .
size range from 3s 500 to 5s 4000 they have all but one 3s500 died
they all dropped a cell
But when the battery was on the new side they where a power packed lipo. there web site went down about 6 months ago now there back on with more odd mha numbers

Bought 2 of his 3S transmitter batteries a couple of years ago, still going strong, but of course very little load on them. Recently bought 4 2S 1000mah for Hitec Weekender warbirds, price was great, but haven't tried them yet.

I bought a bunch 2 years ago. 4s 3300, 3s 3700, and 2s 3300 30C/45C(?) to fly in various planes - Habu 2, Extreme Flight edge 60, Freewing f18 90mm.... Probably 100+ flights on them each and they all are still working (in fact I sold the 4s to a friend who still flies them).

I've own 150+ lipos over the short 4 years I've been in the hobby. The CHL lipos a slight notch below the Glaciers 45C but better than the blue Turnigys I've owned and way better than the Nano puffs and the bigger Hobby People lipos (every 4s lipo from them has blown a cell). On par with the Valuehobby Gforce and Thunder Power G4 (old) line of lipos. I measured IR and they are all similar... Meaning, if you want elite performance go spend the money on Revolectrix 60C lipos.

They make great packs with good cells for a good price.If you catch the pack you want on sale you can really get a good deal. Im glad to see they are back, they were gone for a while.

I've probably bought $1500 worth of different batteries from them and not one has been bad. Cells are balanced and are matched with low IR. That's much better luck than I've had with the "king" . I really put lipos through some torture at times and the CHL packs seem to take it in stride.

I have nothing to do with them, If I find a good product I will say so.

I have had a similar experience as you.They have lower IR than the King batts.Lets hope the new batches being sold are same as what we have.

I bought 4 4S types, all of them wont hold the state value. If memory serves me the 4000 was 3600, and the 4500 was closer to 4000mah.

This was using a 308 duo, and cycling them 5 times at 1amp. Id save my money.

What voltage did you discharge to before recharging? Something doesn't sound right.

I have a couple from before they went down and just ordered a 4s that they put in the box with 48 AA's with no padding except the thin orange bubble on the lipo. It had a couple slight depressions which will result in deposits where no usable battery will result, best case scenario. I contacted jason and he said they would correct the packing issue. Yesterday I got 2 2s batts along with 2 complimentary packs of AA's included. The tissue padding was on one side and the lipos on the other and the AA's were against the lipos. There are 4 deep holes in the monokote from the tips of the aa batteries. Pics sent and jason says e can refund or send the battery with my next order due to shipping cost going up.
Just something to be aware of before buying fron CNHL.

UPDATE
My apologies to the OP, it now appears after 9 emails to jason they are sending the replacement lipo.

Thanks Chris, I couldn't think of anything intelligent for my avatar and came up with that.
