I finally got around to testing these batteries under an 80A draw and wow they didnt get get warm. These should be good for all those motionrc jets running around. My replacement is on backorder and they will send it out once they have them.

I got two of the 5000mAh 50C 6S Rhinos today and the cell voltages were excellent, and the ohms were good too.

How bad is bad? One cell in a 4S 1800 was definitely lower than the rest. Out of 5 of these purchased, all cells were right at 3.7x volts, and this one 3.52. I took pictures and then balanced charged it. I will cycle it a couple times to see if the cell holds up I guess.

If you can get it to balance and the ir measures the same across the packs I think it would be fine. My defective one had a cell voltage of 1.7v and the ir was up there on that cell as well as a couple of others.

I ordered an extra Turnigy Heavy Duty 6S-5000 for my EDF. I've had great luck with these.

Rob fixed my issue with a couple packs (I ordered many) as did the HK website quicker then expected good service for sure. They may have shipped me a couple bad ones but they def are on their game replying and fixing things these days. For this reason now even more I will always recommend HK packs over all others. The other rhinos that came in great shape , they def put my bought last month during Chl sale Chinahobbyline lipos to shame on the IR meter and am sure given that I’ll be even more pleased in the air. I tried some CHL packs during their sale... meh they’re ok at best

Bought 6 Rhino 4000 6s batteries. Used them in my F22 running a 12s setup, they seemed to have more power, came in cooler, and came in with more power left than my Turnigy 4000 Graphene packs in the same plane.
