best LIPO out there for the $$$$$

I have not had a chance to review this product. so here it goes,

After running these batteries for the past 8 months I can say that they are VERY powerful. they have been tested up to 10amps charge rate. I personally don't do that unless I'm in an "important" rush (a main coming up or I need to get back out there )

I keep them at a 5 amp charge.

they are in a hard case. (and there are saddle packs , receiver packs, voltage regulators.... and more to come)

and they have the best customer CARE anywhere, defective items get replaced usually right away.

I'm going to message people that I know have the product and they can tell you for themselves. you really can't go wrong with these!

the best value for lipo technology out there!

I believe marco and marlene (or maybe its just marlene) run this pack, and have had zero issues as well.

I am running Yuntong's in all my rc's. a lot of my buds out here are too because mine haave been so good. I have a couple 14.8v 4s in my 8th scale conversion and I get just as good of performance as others running lipos that cost $100 and up more.

I am using the 2 of the 4800 saddles in my b44 and the weight savings plus power I gained was intense.I run a sidewinder/5700 combo and have no trouble keeping up with mamba with 6800's, 7700's and novak r series. they cost me less than the intellect matched 4200's as well I use.

the newest battery he has is the 2400 mah that's in my 18B. it's a perfect fit and I get about an hour runtime with it. I did buy one of the 1800's first but it was too wide to fit the battery tray, so I traded it to my bud as it is a perfect fit in his xray m18t. he also runs them in his mlst (which is hard to find a battery to fit)

I also just ordered a couple 5k lipos for my T4. I had a couple I used in a saddle pack in another 8th conversion but sold them to a bud for his 4wd... of course I bought a T4 2 weeks after selling the lipos....

you'd be surprised how many guys out this end of canada use them.

not to mention if you get a Reedy, Losi and one other brand I can't remember the name, you are buying a more expensive Yuntong pack than if you'd just bought them from Dominic.

I have one lipo that isn't yuntong, and that's just because untilthe 2400, nothing fit my 18b... I liked them so much I put a link to his site in my signature. I am not sponsored, it was just easier to tell people to check my sig than try to remember the url to his store everytime I was asked where I got them hehe

Thank you.

looks okay, but the 100 Amp graph is missing?....

60Amps is only a bit over half of the maximum continuous discharge rate....

A 100 Amp graph would truely show the performance of this battery...

The equinox looks identical to the Hyperion LBA10 balancers.. I would be suprise if they were, but it does do a great job.

Agreed. I've had no problems with the 5000mah hardcase. I've had these batteries since November 2007, and have been running indoors in the winter a least once a week or more on carpet at FastCats. I can say running on carpet is very demanding on all aspects of the car. I'm running a 2wd with a 10.5 and I still can get about 20 minutes of practice time with one charge. I haven't seen any decline of performance from these batteries.
