    SMC packs are very popular and are reasonably priced.

    I should be more supportive of Vemon packs, they support our local crawling club. But, I know few people that have been happy with them.

    When starting out we had 2 extra venom batteries for my boys brushed truck. We had one of the battery packs go bad. Contacted venom and they sent me a link with the warranty info with a shipping tag that came by mail and took good care of problem. Oh was impressed by the service and ease with it.

    Venom NiMH packs have a strange rep: a very few swear by them and a very many swear AT them. I would not invest cash in any NiMH pack, especially not a Venom.

    I recently picked up a used slash, it came with a venom battery. I have to say it seams a little better then my Traxxas ones. However, it is newer and the Traxxas ones are not. Just my .02.

    Ive had both venom and traxxas packs both are good though venom lasted a little longer life they are just not worth the money they sell for these really with Lipo packs running near the same. If I had choose I'd say venom really if you had to pick for a specific reason you needed it.

    I've used Orion batts very successfully.... https://teamorion.com/en/batteries-en/nimh/

    Can't say I've had any faults with Traxxas batteries just stuck with what worked best for me.

    Yes, they do! I use their lipos quite a bit. My LHS carries them and they are cheap and high quality. You may also know common sense rc as lectron pro.
