    What are your opinion on HRB batteries?

    Any opinions on HRB batteries? Wasn’t sure if it’s a get what you pay for deal with them but they market to a lot of big RC names. They are quite a bit cheaper on amazon than compared to the dynamite brand.

    Help! What am I doing?

    Kraton 6S Hard case vs soft case (for Kraton v4)

    Dear Arrmy, I've just sold my Granite and (hard case 3S) and about to order the V4 Kraton and a battery. Soft pack 6S batts are considerably cheaper than hard packs. If soft packs are safe, then why are hardpacks even a thing? Should I spend the extra to get a hardpack? My likely usage...

    Lectron lipos

    Has anybody used lectron lipos? If so are they good, or bad? I'm new to this. Its seems like there are bad reviews about every lipo out there. I'm thinking about purchasing a lectron 6s 6500 100c lipo. I don't have money for a maxamps or I would get that.

    Battery checker question

    I wanted to get a lipo battery checker and mount it and use it while I run my truck. I'll be running a 4s pack and 2 3s. While I'm running the two 3s packs would I need 2 checkers?

    Dying battery?

    Over the last few runs I have noticed that my one battery (PowerHobby Pro 3S 5200mah 75C) may have been slightly beaten up due to the battery tray on my v2 Kraton being too small for them. Now it only seems to charge to 12.1 volts and the balance in cells is off by a bit. I've used the pack once...

    ISDT Q6 finally set up

    I wanted this to end up as a travel charger for our ridiculous amount of camping trips we do every year. I think it turned out pretty decent. I used a parts bin from work (I hope they don't miss it) and vented for the power supply. It packs up nice, and I can use it for a few batteries in...
