What about SMC or SPC batts?

I'm using Turnigy's also, but after many runs they now take only 50-60 % mah upon charging.

Hi,

This thread is old but I figured it was the best place to ask my question.

To start off, I've been extremely happy with my SMC Factory Spec 7.4V 5000mAh 50C Deans Model #:5050-2S2PD.

I purchased them 12/24/2013, so they are two years old now.

I originally purchased DuraTrax 7.4 2S 5000mah 25c, definitely not as good as the SMC Batteries.

I need to purchase new batteries an I only want to use 2S Batteries, I had a bad experience with the DuraTrax 3S Batteties (another set of batteries I originally purchased with the DuraTrax 2S batteries. It blew up my Savages ESC, put it into flames. I only had my Savage about 3 weeks and only used it 3 times.

Anyway, I would like to invest in the SMC Factory Spec 7.4V 7200mAh 60C Deans or SMC Race Formula Extreme 7.4V 6000mAh 100C Deans both 2S.

Can these be used or are they too overpowered? I don't want to blow the ESC.

Thank you!

Rob

I'm using the Venom 3s 5000mah 100c soft packs. (yes, I know) Works fantastic. I did have to sand down the insides of the battery boxes along the vent openings. Manufacturing left the edges a little sharp at first.
