Default Buffalo LifePO4 batteries?

Anyone have any experience with these? $14 is a great price but are these any good? I'm getting ready to make an order for several Hobbico LiFe packs but the price of these are less than half of each Hobbico battery. These have a discharge rate of 5C and the Hobbico is 10C - seems fishy.

I looked at those also and the price scared me away. They may be great batteries but any time there is that big of a difference in price a big red flag goes up. I've been using the Hobbico LIFE packs for a while. I really like them and no issues so far.

Thanks - that and the discharge rate is drastically different.  I think I may stick with the Hobbico packs for now unless someone else pops in with experience with these.  Maybe for the price I will try them as ignition batts on a gasser to see how they do.
