Hi!
I got already two battery for my mini titan from hobbycity and after about 20 flights on each battery they start to puff and came hot .
After 3-4 minutes the power drop rapidely.
Those battery are one and half year old and i think there are not really 20-30c battery (2200 mah 20-30c 3s zippy) .
They are many battery at hobbycity to choose from so what are the best battery to buy there ?
30C or 40C, zippy,flightmax,turnigy,rhino.
Thank you!

I have some that are about that age and had no lable on them.
They were Zippy-H and said 20-30C. I think the 20C is nominal and 30C is burst.
Is that the ones you have?
I have 40-50 flights on each of the 2 I bought. They are performing like my other Turnigy/Zippy 20C batteries.

Are you timing your flights and are you making sure you are not depleting them to the point that they are below 3.7V after cool down?
If you did not know,
The worse thing you can do to a battery is fly it till you hit the low voltage cut off from your ESC.

I switched to turnigy 35C or 30C 2200mAh 3S last summer, then later switched to Blue Lipo
Blue Lipo Review.

Hobbypartz is out of them but their facebook page says they are comming out of customs next week. The nice thing is you don't pay the Hobbycity shipping nor wait time.

beaulac, I have been flying Flightmax 3S 2200mah 25C for a year and not had a single one of them (6-total) puff. I had other Zippys that are 2-years old and those have puffed because I use to fly them below 80% discharge. I have taken care to not over discharge my newer set and as I mentioned, they are in great shape.

If you are puffing them your flights are to long or your setup is not suitable for flying on 3S.

I have zippy but not H on it and had no lable on them too, probably the cheapest zippy of the series .

I am using stock esc and stock motor and stop flying soon as a feel a little lost of power.
I check my battery after and got about 3.9v on each cell.
Got this problem soon i have tried 3d flying.
I will try 30c + battery next time.
Thank you

I have owned all kinds of batteries I think you would be better off going with a blurr pack as the price is good and the quality is way better than any of the hobby king packs.
