I wouldn't be surprised if those batteries are not truly rated. I wouldn't trust them considering quite a few tried-and-trusted battery brands out there.

Hence why i opened this thread. Looking for people who have bought them And are able to give an opinion on the batteries. But all the same, thank you for your input.

I wouldn't mind seeing more good Lipo vendors and welcome more competition. The more the better for us as the end users.

Anyhow, that being said, these days it's pretty hard (if not impossible) to ship Lipo to the states. I buy mine now-a-days exclusively from vendors that provide a local US warehouse.

so far I've used:
hobbypartz - gens ace
hobbyKing USA warehouse- turnigy blue/nano, rhino, zippy
and lately haiyins, but they are a bit pricier
banahobby just started offering up some, haven't tried those yet.

well, if no one comes forward, maybe you can be our guinea pig

Bart Simpson would say haha!
anyways, looks like those spams worked- either in a positive way because you recognized, or negative because you'll never buy from them.

Actually they've been advertising on RCG legally a few times within the last week, I've noticed. That's probly where he heard of them.

I just picked up 2 of the 2200mah 3S 30C from the USA warehouse.

For the time being the pricing is pretty tempting
Free shipping
10% off...

my order for 2 Lipos of the above was $25.18 Shipped!
That's cheaper than HK.

I'll report back how the shipment went and experience with battery.
I'll fly it on my stryker at 55amps...which is close to the C rating and compare that to my more expensive Haiyin 40c Lipos and Gens Ace Lipos.

I'll question the C rating only because of this news on their site which claims coming soon a 90C battery with 180C burst.

I still don't understand the point of those. 90C is approximately 1 minute of runtime. And I doubt people really need the voltage sag resistance that much, for the weight.

40 secs to be exact! and that's all of it...
if we follow the 80% it is 32 secs

but anyways, I like to try new vendors.
Ultimately, I'm putting the 2x 2200mah in parallel on a 5 lb cub that WOT only hits 50amps so it should be no sweat.
