besides the balance lead breaking, they have worked pretty good.
i`ve never had a zippy, turnigy, or rhino, so i cant say how they compare. but the blue lipos do have a 50c burst rateing and you can tell.

Should work also...
I just pulled the covering on the lipo up a bit carefully, and shoved some in there neatly... I showed some friends and they started doing it also. I had two Flightmax that had the white balance lead break of from use, since its the closest wire to the outside of the lipo it just broke off past the solder from repeated bending(not anything to do with quality) I was just manhandling them prior to that. I ended up putting both on my heli starter and since then I shoe goo all my lipos lightly...

Broken white balnce plug on 4 of my zippie`s, I `suspect the manhandling may not be the issue. Repaired with `solder `and hot glue.

I'd never heard of the Blue lipos either. I figure for the price they are worth a shot. I just ordered 3 from hobbypartz.

On my 2 FlightMax lipos that had the white balance lead break....
It was past the solder from repeated use and bending, eventually the wire broke. This is understandable, I don't think it was a quality issue, I got my $20 worth from both of them by the time this happened, and now use both in my heli starter. I have not had it happen again on the other 12 lipos I have from hobbycity, using the shoo-goe. Hobbycity Lipos are a great deal, I've flown high-end lipos and did not notice a considerable difference that would make me pay three times as much for them.

i have two, well had two of the blue lipo brand. one the balance lead broke off and i could`nt get it to solder back on, so i tossed it, it worked great up untill then. the other one was working great untill my heli got a bad vibration and the battery rotated enough to rub on the motor.
by the time i landed the motor ate threw one cell.

i liked them so much i ordered 4 more last friday.

Just try a bit of shoo-goe or hot glue, and the balance leads will be fine.....

yeah i`ll try this on the new ones. one thing i noticed on the blue lipo brand, the balance leads are pretty stiff. other batteries i have the leads are pretty flexable.

the bad thing is the leads are direct to the cells, so it makes trying to resolder a huge pain.
i have some cheap batteries off ebay, they have a balance board which if i needed to resolder a lead its alot easier.
