    You could look here. I've had good luck with their packs.

    Their 4500 mAh pack is $35, but Iíve heared itís still good quality. Thatís some great value!

    Iím moving to the US in a couple of months. Is it a good idea to sell my 8500 mAh 3s gens ace and 5000 mAh 2s traxxas lipo and charger, and get SMC in the US?

    I would keep it all unless your aren't allowed to take it with you (flight restrictions maybe), and just buy additional packs when needed.

    I want to go all XT90, and my current packs have a TRX and EC5 connector. Also, my cousin wants to get info LiPoís, so I could sell him my batteries. And my 3s is waaay toheavy. I have never got it empty; its 8500 mAh

    I have 2 Gens Ace LiPo’s, and I’m happy with what they do. €80 for 1 oversized 3s. They also have a nice 4s, though I haven’t uused it.

    I have also been happy with the price and performance of my Gens Ace lipos.

    That should work out well for you and your cousin then. I have converted all of my Lipo's over to XT90's earlier in the year, and haven't regretted it. Had Deans at one point, but always "thought" they were too small for the high mAh batteries, and were always a PITA to solder too.

    I've been running hobbystar 6200mah 50C 3S and hrb 5000mah 50C 3S packs for the past 18 months, have had pretty good luck.

    After 18 months, they are all starting to tire a bit.

    A couple months ago, I bought a couple CNHL 3000mah 65C 3S packs to try in my ERBEv2 and other 6S trucks. They perform better than the HRB 5000mah 3S 50C packs. Also picked up a couple liperior 65C 5000mah 3S packs, but they were too big to fit in my ERBEv2 without removing the clips, so I got 4 of the Liperior 45C 5000mah 3S packs, they are a bit thinner/lighter than the 65C's. Should perform fine, but haven't run them yet. Cheap though.

    None of which are 4S of course, but a cell is a cell. I run mine from full to 3.4V (LVC) every time I run unless I break something.

    This would be the comparable CNHL 4S pack to the ones I run which perform really well:

    If you live in the USA, I think the best choice is SMC, though I’m not sure

    Was a new one that cropped up recently.

    Here's a link to their 4S 45C+ 4000-6500mah
    https://rcbattery.com/batteries/41.h...ischarge=45-75

    I have these, which I ran in my ERBEv2, but were a bit thick, even with the clips in the battery bays removed:
    5000mah 3S 65C: https://rcbattery.com/liperior-5000m...xt90-plug.html

    Then I ordered these as they are a bit thinner and lighter:
    5000mah 3S 45C: https://rcbattery.com/liperior-5000m...xt90-plug.html

    I haven't run the second ones yet, but I have run the first ones a couple times in both my ERBEv2 and outcast 6S. They performed really well. Good punch, charged quick/even and a good run time. The 65C were just too thick for the erbe, so I'll only use them in my outcast, savage flux or slampede 4x4.

    Will likely try the 45C's this weekend. Was planning on running them today, but other things got in the way and I didn't make it out.
