If your going to fly a lot, I think the best value is the new 65C's.
TP is claiming 600 cycles on them.
The New Pinnacle of Performance – The World’s Most Advanced, Most Powerful and Longest Lasting LiPo Batteries Yet!
Thunder Power RC introduces all-new Generation 6 (G6) Pro Power 65C series batteries capable of technology-leading charge rates up to 12C* and delivering up to 60% more power and 600+ cycles for high-power airplane, EDF, 3D helicopter and other demanding applications.
Plus they have a fantastic warranty...
Available in capacities from 325mAh to 7700mAh and in configurations from 1S 3.7V to 10S 37.07V, there’s a G6 Pro Power 65C series battery available for just about any application and at prices lower than the G4 Pro Power 45C batteries they replace. Best of all Thunder Power RC batteries are backed by an industry-leading full 2-year warranty and 50% off damage replacement program coverage AND ARE STILL PROUDLY ASSEMBLED AND SUPPORTED IN THE USA!
Can you imagine a crash warranty that lasts two(if it does) years!

Cheap vs. Inexpensive

Because we live in such a "nit picky" society these days, I'll chime in to say that, perhaps, "Inexpensive" may be the more appropriate term for batteries like Turnigy and Nano. I have both and they seem just as good as the other more expensive brands like TP, FP, and HP. It comes down to preference and chance. One may be less likely to get a bad HP, TP, etc as compared to Turnigy or Nano but for the price, is the extra expense justified? This ? comes of much to often and my 1/2 cent says make suggestions and back it up with facts. These threads are often filled with "My preference is the only true preference out there" type remarks and it ultimately boils down to the decision made by the OP. Personally, if you have the $$$ and don't mind spending it, go for the brand name because you're less likely to be dissatisfied but if you wanna save a penny or two, do a lil research and find that "inexpensive" alternative that works for you. Ok. You guys can start the flaming now. I have my flame "retarded" suit on now.

It's better to have flown and crashed than to never to have flown at all.

[size=large]Thank you Band1086 for your information on Thunder Power. Actually it DOES mean a lot to me that they at least assemble the Thunder Power battery packs here in the U.S. The warranty is great too. I have used Outrage NRG and FlightMax 130 mAh in my former mSR and was very dissappointed in their performance and their fast demise... not due to constant over discharge. Heck... my stock E-flite batteries lasted loger than those two and they were only 120 mAh. Now I am into the big leagues with the 2200-2600 mAh packs, which is why I am continuing to pay attention to this thread. A great learning experience in battery packs right here.

Who wants to charge at 1c-2c when you can charge at 6c+ with better quality LiPos.

Here's my Hyperion story,
all 2600mah 6s batteries used in Trex500 and Trex600 12s helis.

One leaked after 70 cycles and replaced under warranty, another I crashed at 55 cycles and they replaced at 60% of list price.

The latest story is one has two low cells at 85 cycles and I am in process for replacement on this one currently.

Two others are going strong at 90 cycles each.

Take all this info as you may but will turnigy and volts give such customer service?

I dont think so....

I mainly buy Turnigy and Blue lipo's. I've had great success with both. I did try super cheap on Ebay and they sucked. Both were suppose to be 2200 mah and one of them was a 1800 mah which was mislabeled. I buy cheap batteries, but only from reputable sellers.
