    Cheap Lipos?

    Anyone had any experience with cheap lipos,such as ones from ebay like this -
    http://cgi.ebay.com/2x-2200mAh-11-1v...3A1%7C294%3A50

    The more expensive lipos you will be looking at poaying atleast twice as much.
    Rated at 15c,2200mah,and their is 2 for under $40,seems to goo to be true?

    So anyone tired them/anything like this and had any problems?

    RE: Cheap Lipos?

    I haven't seen those, but I have seen lipos from this place:

    http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...0C_Lipoly_Pack

    That's the battery I have on the way to me now. The ones I've seen work well, amazing deal.

    I love it how they say 'mystery' and they have fire already on them. It's like those LiPo adds a while back that bragged "Explosive Power!".

    RE: Cheap Lipos?

    i have 4 of the mystery lipos. 2400mah 15c 11.1v all fine for me. maybe their discharge rating is a bit over-rated.
    in my experience, they are cheap and they work

    people may disagree with me

    I just bought that 6000mah lipo a few minutes ago on Ebay, $70 shipped to Washington seems like a good deal to me, the seller says it new.
    Does that look like a good deal to you?
