Batteries

My mother-in-law has been begging me for gift ideas. I figure I can always use some batteries. Gens ace are out of stock. What kind should I tell her to get? Looking for 4S 4000 so I can fly them in my 57 Extra as well.

Been thinking about Haiyin:

Flight Max

NanoTech

Thanks!

Never tried the Hayin...Have had good luck with the Flightmax, horrible luck with Nonos (Nanos), try the Glacier packs from EP Buddy. I have heard they are pretty good...

Haiyin batteries are very nice. I have some 6s 3600s from them and they are as good if not better than gens ace and glacier batteries(which i still use and like but the haiyin seem to be a tad better quality)

The only issue i have with them is that sometimes their packs weigh more than the other brands with similar capacity

No stock on Glacier either.

Sure wish someone came out with good packs that were usually in stock as opposed to usually out of stock!

That leaves me Flightmax or Haiyin to choose from.

I am not an expert, but I have noticed that increased C rating corresponds to the weight of the pack. It could be that Haiyin is under-rating their C-ratings to ensure quality on performance. This comes at the expense of a little extra weight/capacity. I am not sure that this is the cause for the weight variance, but it seems likely.

Interesting quote from Joe Smith from another forum...

Gens Ace seem to be consistently rated high, but I can never find them in stock.

Maybe he meant he needed a lighter pack because i've had zero problems the Haiyin packs(and i am very hard on my batteries charging multiple times a day and doing a lot of WOT flying). I'm not sure but from my experience the Haiyin batteries are great quality.

I would like to think they are better than the Flightmax. So given the choices that appear to be in stock at various places I think I will give them a try.

I don't suppose sponsorship has anything to do with that statement, anyone try the new scorpion packs that Haiyin is making/selling.

I have 2 haiyin 3300mah 6s and they are great

You're the reason I've started slowly purchasing Haiyin batteries. We seem to demand the same things out of our batteries (although the output of that deman for you is more specatular! ) so I figured if they work for you then they'll work for me too.

I've been using 30c but i'm sure 25c would be fine too.

I was thinking sponsorship might be a part of it

I haven't tried the scorpion packs yet because they're too expensive and the haiyins and glaciers have been serving me well

They're definitely good packs. My 6s 3600s are as solid as the day i bought them after over 75 cycles a piece.

I love my larger gens-ace as well, my 6s 2500 have been fantastic in both my planes and helis, but this says a lot
