Well after 3 years plus and 6 months of storage I had a cell go out on my Genace packs. I am in the market for 6S 45C plus and a good price. I have tried a few brands but want to make sure I am not missing anything?

Pulse- My favorite packs so far but not cheap
TP- I wish I bought packs when they were on sale, great customer support
Glacier- Good value but lower Cs

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

to me pulse is the best bang for the buck cheaper than TP but still great quality.

how many cycles
Did you get on your GensAce packs; they are hard toget but they seem worth it. Pulse seems to be the next best choice..from what I've seen.

I do a great decending funnel!

Evo power is a good battery from Encore Rc and they are a little cheaper than pulse. We have been using them for about 2 years and have had good luck with them. Also are about 3.5 ounces lighter too.

Good info gents. I would say I got 150-200 cycles out of the GENACE. I started with 4 6S 5300s. Two 30 and two 65C. The 65C were only very slightly better. The shape of the pack made them only usable in some helis. One of the 65C packs started to ooze about a year ago. They were not on the list for me.

I have a few Glacier 6s packs that are on their 3rd year and still going. Out of 6 5300s, only 2 have had a cell go bad and that was in their 3rd season after sitting all winter. The other 4 packs are still running strong. These are the 35c packs, I have had 3 of their 6s 45c packs and they started puffing in the first season.

I have also run Pulse 45c, Thunder Power 65c, Thor 45c and a few off brands. The 35c Glaciers have lasted the longest and put out the best power of all my 6s packs after 3 seasons. My TP was junk after 1 season (still flies but bogs a LOT), the pulse and 1 of my Thor packs lost a cell in the 2nd season. Only my 5300 Glaciers and 1 Thor pack are still strong enough for 3d flight in their 3rd season.

I have also been impressed with the glaciers. They were the last packs I bought so longevity is to be seen for me. I have just got an email from TP and the Lightning series is calling my name. Thanks for the input guys.

Same here.....just over 60 cycles so far on my oldest ones, 6s4400s, and
they are doing fine. And yeah, all of mine are 30/35c.

Seems like for the last few years, everytime I leave IRCHA, I am bringing
home some more Glaciers. Keep looking at the Pulse and others, but always
end up w. the Glaciers

And a Thor 6s 5500 45c has been/is the strongest pack I have ever had and just went over a 100 cycles the other day. And believe it was an IRCHA '12
purchase. So well over 3yrs so far.......

    Got the Thunder Power email yesterday and have a Lightning 55C pack on the way today. Nothing like spending more money to be "saving" money. Lol that's sick. It is a incredible deal glad I was on the fence for the last few weeks!
