Thanks a ton! I just ordered a bunch of batteries. My son's father likes to play with his new toy too.

Regards

I just placed an order with them and they had all the batteries I wanted....1300 30c 3s & 2200 30c 3s.
Everything was in the US warehouse so should not be a prob.

They have apparently fixed the website. Now things that were out of stock are back to the quantities they had last night.

Sounds like an IT problem that has been fixed. Here is what Jason wrote:

Thanks for your information and now the inventory is OK.

I ran the two packs I bought last week. Seem to run alright for 40C rating. Well see how they last after 5-10 cycles, too early to tell after only 1.

my 2 paks (4s 3700mah 40C), now has 30 cycles each

I run it on the 1400mm FMS P40 warbird doing 60amps at WOT. I run for about 5 mins and it comes down ~3.75/cell.

I only have 2 paks, so I charge at the field with a generator. I fast charge them at 3C...only takes 15mins-18mins to fully charge both paks in parallel.

So far, both paks are doing great.

Any puffing, have you measured the IR?

No puffing; hard as rock; and no noticeable voltage sag at all until I get below 3.8v/cell

Sorry, No IR measurement. I sold my turnigy that had IR readings to a flying buddy; maybe next time I see him, I'll get IR off of it.

I ordered today. It looks like they still are giving 10% off too. There was a 10% discount on my US warehouse order by the end.

signed up and took the plunge. 5 7.4 batteries (500mah), one 4500 11.1 30, and a 2700 14.8 50c, free shipping, plus a buck off for new signup, and a large lipo bag....less than $90.00. Oh, and all have Deans (t) plug. Didn't really need them, but how could I pass that up?

Thanks for posting up this place, seems like a win !

Good to see they are extending the january free ship and 10% off into February. Let me know how all your batteries arrive. Like I posted earlier, mine were not packed well and sustained some denting in the case because of it. I emailed Jason about it and he said he would talk to the USA warehouse about it, but I doubt they will change anything...

Will do. I got an e-mail from them about an hour after my purchase saying the item was packed for shipping. I'm guessing that's a stock e-mail, but we'll see. I don't know if they provide tracking. I'll wait 7 days and then check back again. I would be amazed if they actually show up in a some type of envelope.

The shipping was fast and everything else about the transaction was great except the packaging!! Mine arrived in 5 days from ordering, really fast compared to anyone else in the lipo biz.

I wanted to say I had another good experience with Jason but it seems there's prob......my shipment was prepped and supposedly shipped Feb 1. The tracking/conformation number still has no update since the 1st when the label was generated.......I called my local PO and had them run a check to see where this package was and it isn't in their system yet Yes the number is good, but there is no record of it being picked up etc.
So I emailed Jason to cancel my order.......bummer but I could have bought and had the needed batt's from other sources by now. IF he would have explained that perhaps they were having to come from over seas because of a computer/human foul up then I would be OK with that....but I dunno.
