Default China

Has anyone here ever purchased batteries from China? The prices seem too good to be true, but would I have to wait a month or 2? Are they really worth the wait?

I would not get them, here's a few similar examples. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_88...tm.htm#8873237

The zippy (Flightmax) batteries from Hobby City are great, everyone in our club buys them.

Never had a problem with my Zlippy's or Rhino's. Using 1400's up to 5000's. Shipping time from China has been less than two weeks on every order.

I now have 8 Zippys from 2S 2200ma to 3S 2650ma, and 2 Turnigy 2S 5000ma packs, and so far all have performed well. I tend to err on the cautious side when figuring my capacities though, I make sure the battery constant discharge amperage is well above what I actually need. The batteries hardly even get warm after a flight.
I don't have too many cycles through the Turnigys yet though, still too early to give them the complete thumbs up, but Zippys and Rhinos are good IMHO.

I bought 2 E-Fly 7.4v 5000mah 20c-28c burst from Ebay for $78 bucks shipped, I received them in 7 business days. I would say I've put them through at least 15 cycles and not one problem yet. I've got my LVC set at 3.5v per cell and im putting 5600mah back into them, they even came with deans soldered on. I must have got lucky I guess

I guess it depends on which batteries you are talking about.

Hi, welcome to RCU. I will test one or more samples and post the resulting graphs here if you'd like to send samples. I will send them back if you want. Your website looks good, how to get prices?

I'd be interested in 1600 NI , 4500 NI, and 4000 LI and 5000 LI packs. All packs at around 6-8 volts please.

Thank you.

Hey folks - I have been anxiously waiting for these batteries - They arrived on Monday June 29 2009 - just a few short days after the order was placed +1. Juiced RC will provide full access to these gems. We plan on bashing and racing with these new Li-Po batteries... Here is the first article from Juiced RC[link=http://raceroneight.wordpress.com/2009/06/18/your-li-fu-is-strong/]"Your Li-Fu is Strong"[/link]
