Gens Ace Lipo Batteries, USPS, Hobbypartz, SDSHobby

As many Canadians have found out, USPS will no longer ship lipo batteries internationally. This means no longer being able to buy Gens Ace lipos, a favorite brand for many, especially among surface RC owners, or any other lipos from hobbypartz or any other seller out of the U.S. Even if we could convince such U.S. based sellers to ship via courier, the brokerage fees we'd get raped with make it not even worth it (unless you want the battery really bad and are willing to do whatever it takes to acquire it).

I came across some forum posts of people buying genuine Gens Ace products directly out of China from SDSHobby (Cylcone Toy) and decided to give them a try. Prices are not as great as hobbypartz but still good for quality lipos. Experience was good so far, haven't charged or tested the batteries yet (will update when I do).

These are the new "overseas" green/black label Gens Ace. Orange/black label is for U.S. market (hobbypartz.com) North America market.

Thanks for the reply. While they are supposed to be great lipos I used to be able to get 4 zippys for that price.

Might be my only option at this point.

In the long run, these will last longer... comparable to Thunder Power for number of cycles, power, won't puff from normal use. I came across mention somewhere that TP is actually Acepow product (Gens factory) as is Glacier and supposedly Sky Lipo.

I'm going on 3 years (not a high frequency of use) now on some of the 2S 5000mah I run in these cars and they're still strong. One of the ones I just ran in the Glamis Fear had even been left discharged for a year, it might have even been two, and it's fine. I run the brand in my planes too..
