    Question venom fly batteries

    anyone try these batt yet?
    hey has anyone tried these venom fly batteries yet? http://www.venompower.com/collection...uni-2-0-plug-1 I bought 2 today for my disco. man are these things light!!!! only 450grams and they fit with tons of room to spare!! only had a chance to fly 1 pack today and it performed very well. 13 mins fly time. did 3km and back quite easily and was sittin at 3.77 volts per cell relaxed. seem like a decent battery, has anyone used these before?? I've never seen these around till today

    I sincerely hope they are improved over their older series of batteries

    I used to race 1/8th scale monster trucks and buggies and I bought 4 sets (8 X 2s 5000mah , 2 xrun in series to make 4s ) of their hard case packs only to have 1 set catch fire whilst being run in a vehicle total loss of everything and the other 3 sets all puffed between 20 to 30 cycles

    I run a quality thunder power dual charger and all packs were stored at storage charge and always balance charged when being used
    My esc cut offs were always set at 3.8 volts per cell (castle mamba monster)

    So I will never buy these Venom batteries again

    Hope you have a better experience

    I guess I'll just paste here what I posted in your other thread on the very same topic :P

    hmmm 10.87 mAh per gram. That's multistar battery territory, but at an impressive C rating. Price though...

    EDIT: Actually just rechecked my Battery Sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Actually, I was wrong.. Multistar still have a much better Capacity per Weight Ratio, there are some Zippys, Turnigys and Rhinos that come close to the venom.

    the ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 4S1P 20C, for example, about 1/4 the price of the venom and same capacity and weight. Similar Volume as well but 10C less.

    They get heavier when you charge 'm, I guess they must've been near empty when you bought 'm?

    if it weighs 7 grams less after the flight, I'd discard it, because its leaking will probably burst in flames any second lol.
