Which li-po cell should be the next?


Currently, I have 2 packs of e-tec 1200 li-po cell for either 3s1p or 3s2p applications. Somehow (because of my carelessness), I have over-discharged them and they are not as strong as before. I am now looking for another new li-po packs but I am wondering what's the next I should get. Here are some of the candidates.

1. Tanic li-po
2. Next generation of e-tec li-po (I have heard that they would come out early this year but I have no information for their specification. Any idea?)
3. Just buy another e-tec 1200 as I used before

Mostly, the planes I flied are using Speed 300, 400 & Astro 010 motors.

Thanks.

Kokam 1500? Thunder Power 1900?

Kokam 1500 & TP 1900


It seemed to me that Kokam 1500 & TP 1900 might be a little heavy in weight for 3s1p applications.

In both my planes I interchange between Etec 1200 3s and Kokum 1500 3's and I cant tell the difference in the added weight when running the Kokums.

Be aware though the Kokums have less voltage drop and may add up to 1 amp more draw on the same setup.
