Replacement packs for trex 550 6s 5000 mah
All of the packs for my Trex are old and tired. They just dont put out the power anymore.

These were all Pulse packs, and they have been good.

What I am wondering is if any of you have found any cheaper packs with similar performance. I need 6 packs. Is it possible to be a cheap skate and still get decent quality packs?

Any recommendations? Thanks.

I’ve had good luck with Gens Ace. I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Same here,HRB's...
I fly on the deck 3d smack and big air,I used Gens Ace (good batteries) Pulse (not so good) and I tried a couple pairs of HRB's and have been totally impressed,especially with the price.I fly 700 size heli's and use two 6s 5000 packs in series,i can buy two good quality 6's HRB packs for the price of one name brand 6s pack,that's a no brainer decision there!
I've had 50 flights or more on the HRB's and the IR's are still 1.5 to 1.8 per cell after beating the crap out of these batteries...

Let me remind you something...

Most of this lipo pack suppliers are not manufacturer.

So, you want a good lipo pack?
You need to get a fresh lipo pack new from factory...
Easy?... Oh! Nop...

Yes... The key is the internal resistance measurement prior to buy one.

IMHO, Some tips...

1. Lipo packs get older with time no matter what you do.

2. Don't buy a cheap lipo pack.
Most of the time, are old but with a new "print and shiny label" with internal resistance from 15 and above...very bad.

3. Avoid buying lipo pack on black Fridays or "special offers".
You are going to get "brand new" lipo pack but very old in date of manufacturing.

4. Lipo packs are not like a PB car battery. They don't have a expiration date. They must have it but the use of this technology is weird.

5. It is difficult but when the time comes, assure you buy a new, recent, lipo pack.
This is something the dealer and you have to achieved.

6. If you are happy with one brand, keep looking same brand.
If you are happy with the performance of one brand, you are going to mess your wallet looking for more problems.

7. Some day, lipo pack is going to have "manufacture date" and "expiration date" printed on the label.

Very good!

This is like winning the lottery!

Sometime you win... Most of the time, you don't.
