Shark, cod are indeed around under a completely different name.

Still get great service from them.

I use them for most of my radio gear. And lots more besides.

I too have been very pleased with price and performance of Zippy Compact lipos from HK.

Hobby king zippys and Turnigy standard lipos are excellent and well priced. Never had cause for complaint.

I have used Purple Power LiPos for years. I have had very good reliability and power from them

Thanks for the nod towards hobby king, they have Turnigy 3200 4S 30C for £23.60 at the minute. (not the nano tech as suggested) That's around £15 cheaper than anywhere else! Perfect timing as a couple of mine are swollen and need replacing.

David, to discharge, I just attached them to an old car halogen until it was completely dead then cut off the wires for later use and chucked it in the bin

Interesting the mention of 35C discharge - I’m just replacing a few Power-Tech 2250mAh 33C 3S 11.1V Li-Po Batteries which have puffed up, and I was thinking of getting a higher discharge rate to get more life out of them, I don’t feel I run them that hard but they haven’t lasted... most brands seem to stick to 30C so is anyone else finding the same problem? Do you think a better brand at 30C would give better (safer) results? I have no issue with the power, I’d just prefer flat batteries

That's a well kept secret! Thanks for the "heads-up".
