We know when you have the opportunity to test one of these new batteries in your model first-hand it’ll be the ultimate testament to the vastly superior performance and true revolution in LiPo batteries we’re once again excited to lead the way with.”

• Any brand and model of battery accepted for trade-in with a manufacturer’s rated capacity of more than 2700mAh, regardless of cell count, makes you eligible for the purchase of any Pro Lite V2 20C or Pro Power 30C series battery, in any available capacity and cell count, at the 50% off price.

Also, while you must still provide TPRC with the trade-in battery at the event in order to be eligible to receive the 50% off discount and to backorder the applicable battery of your choice, you will not be charged for the trade-up battery until it is ready to ship.

So, exactly how puffy can they be??? I have one that is kinda... well, let me just say that I keep it in an ammo can!

I'm gonna bring it and find out. If that won't work, I'll find something else. This is one heck of a deal. I have never used a Thunder Power lipo before, but this is certainly enough to get me to try one out.

I think the word "excessively" means that a simple puffed battery should be taken..

I would think "excessive" would indicate something along the lines of U-shaped batteries with no shrink on them anymore..

So.. my question..

If I trade in a 2S 1200 can I buy a 4S 2200? I notice the rule states that it must be under 2700mah.. IE you cannot trade in a 3S 1320 for a 6S 5000.. but is that due to the fact that it is over 2700mah?

These new packs are very nice. I have been flying the Pro-Lite V2 for a while now and they are still working just like new.

Is there anywhere I can find a list of what the prices are going to be so I have the cash beforehand? I've got two 2S 1320mah 13C packs that were to be used in parallel for a FSK P-38 that are two years old and never used. I'm curious if they'll still hold a charge well. I really should have stored them at 50% charge, but I think I put them up with a 100% charge about a year ago.

Got a 3S 2250mah 25C v2 that I've run sparingly, and a 10S 5000mah 25C v2 that is exactly a year old and has never been run. I hate sitting on technology so long that the next stuff comes out with specs like 5 times the run life and 25% more power delivery. I'm sure this 10S will still kick out some juice, though.

www.thunderpowerrc.com take a look at the lipo you want under the products page and take 1/2 off I would assume.
