Okay, so when I started buying these packs for my XR10, they were AWESOME! Great run times & power. Picked up a 5500 2s gens ace for my SCT and was low voltage right off the bat, returned it for an exchange, during the exchange process I ordered 2 more 5500 2s from HobbyPartz and right off the bat 1 of 2 were low voltage... I dont know what to think of these batteries anymore....

Thats my .02 & now do not reccomend Gens Ace to anyone here..

I personally do use and recomend them. I have 9 of them and had zero problems with them. But I'm sure plenty of people do have trouble like yourself. Thats the thing about lipos lol. Like Maxipads, I mean maxamps, their a huge name and I've had nothing but trouble with them, wouldnt/wont ever run them again.

Feel lucky that these are available lol. So much better than a couple years ago when a good 5000 mah 3s pack would run your $100+.

I know this thread is from last summer but I just wanted to add my .02 worth. I own 5 different packs so far from gens ace and have not had a single problem with them yet. Getting ready to order 2 or 3 saddle pack sets from them.

Consider yourself lucky, I went the gensacearespammers route last year and my first 2S and 4S were spot on balanced well extremely low IR, so I purchased more a few months later and three in a row were not worth using. received one with one cell a 1.2v:angry: The other two had IR values all over the place, too bad because if you luck out and get a good one they are really a very nice battery but I think they are having QC issues trying to keep up with demand. My .02 Hopefully they will work throughs these problems, because it sure does beat paying the big buck for Thunder Power, although charging at 12C isn't so bad either..:D

There are a lot of battery gurus over at RCG, that really geek out on logging data over the life of their packs. The Gens Ace packs have performed as well, and in many cases better than some of the big, BIG brand names. Every company has a lemon now and then, and I know it's frustrating, but they are awesome packs at any price, but especially for what we pay for them.
