anyone had an issue with gens ace 1300-1800 3s?

After about 60 flights my gens are starting to get squishy. They haven't puffed but they aren't rock hard like my 4s 2500's that's I have had since last summer.

Just curious as I have see some more posts about these and may move over to the zippy compacts.

Are these the ones with the carbon fiber looking outer cover? I haven't noticed it with any of mine (blue or CF cover) but I have noticed it with some of my sky lipos. I've got several Gens Aces in different sizes (1350, 1550, 1800, 2200, 2500-4S, 3300-5S.)

I have 3s in 1000,1550,2200.
That being said the 1550 are starting to show some puffynessand lack of holding voltage.
The 2200s are rock solid and preforming well.
The 1550's are used in my Radian 18amps at full throttle and have about 75 flights on them.
I purchased some glacier packs to replace the 1550's just to try out.

I have six 2s 1550 and four 3s 1550s for over a year now. I have run them in Mini Revos, small boats, rock crawlers and planes. They have been over discharged many times (down to 3%) and are still very firm. I don't fuss over them much since they aren't very expensive. Many are well over 50 cycles.

One note about the 1550s, according to the posted specs they are similar in weight to the 1800s. I always go for the 1800s over those.
