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.

Component Shop. Good prices, plus you get to choose what connector you want.

Rapid Models are also good.......most of their lipos seem to have XT60 connectors. Not a bad thing

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.

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

That is exactly my experience too. I have around 90 lipos and the best performance has come from Zippy and Zippy compacts from HK. They are fantastic value batteries as long as you don't need more than 35C discharge rate.

Turnigy (ordinaries) from HK have been excellent too - as long as you don't need better than 25C.

Gens Ace from Giant Shark have been outstanding.

I have never bought or used Turnigy Nano-Tech because the small group I fly with all have them and have been very disappointed with them.

But...... as always in this game..... your mileage may vary! We are each of us giving our own personal experiences here and our collective opinions are not statistically meaningful. Better than nowt, though smiley
