Gens Ace Car Lipos difference

Can anyone tell me difference between the two batteries? I just got a ECX 1/8 Ruckus truck and looking for Lipos for it

https://shamihobbies.com/collections/car-batteries

But they have listed same battery with two different pack#s: Pack 10# and Pack 21# for Gens ace 5000mAh 7.4V 50C 2S1P HardCase. They are same priced, not sure which one to pick.

Help anyone?

Also, anyone with experience on Ruckus, would these batteries be good enough or won't harm the truck?

For vehicles , make sure to use the hard case for safety/protection reasons. You don't want a lipo cell puncture to flame your prude and joy.

Seems to me the batteries are identical, except in the manner the power leads join the battery.

No-on can tell you which one to buy unless we know the kind of car you have and the way the battery leads need to run in your car.

Battery #10 has a top-mounted power leads.
I'm assuming if your battery bay is tight on the width, and you have to plonk the battery into the bay with it tight all around, you will need these top-mounted power leads.

On the other hand, battery #21 looks like it has generic leads coming out of the pack from the side.
If you have lots of room in your battery bay, there is nothing wrong with this one (or the other one for that matter)
