cheap LIPO batteries????

I am kinda new to the RC world and i was looking for good deals in lipo batteries and find some ebay stores that sell 5000mAh 2s 7.4V 25C for like $14.00 and I was wondering if they worked the same and last like the ones in other stores with a 100+ price tag, I dont dont know if this would be a good investment, I will really appreciate any advice.

Second HK only because I never delt with HP. You just need to know that when yo ufind what your looking for to not hesitate to pull the trigger as they quickly go out of stock because they are very popular these days with lipo packs that perform very very well.

yeah Hobby king is the way to go, you may get the odd bad pack but the price is so low that it more then makes up for it. The size of pack you mention is a great all around size for RC'ing

I just got some lipos from HK and was impressed they were only 8days in arriving and that included Labor Day. They were all at acceptable voltage, no low voltage probs.


I also got an order from Hobbypartz, my 1st with them and was not terribly impressed with their shipping. They were quick to email me and say my order had shipped, but when I looked at tracking, it was 2 full days later before USPS actually picked it up.

I never see lipos I want in stock at Hobbypartz, mine come from HK.

yeah, hobbypartz is pretty good if you want stuff faster with low shipping, and if they have what you want in stock.

i've had an order from hk that arrived in 2 business day's using the ems shipping.
