    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    That's pretty good battery for its price:
    - 2400-2500mAh (tested on genue iMax B6 and it's ACM copy; I have 3 of these batteries)
    - high continuous discharge current ~50A
    - relatively good burst current ~70-75A
    - good results at high stress applications (2.36 minutes at ~50A till being fully drained; ~2Ah capacity)
    - good results at cold weather (~30A continues discharge at 0 C)
    - good buid quality

    Cons:

    - that's not a 2800mAh battery like advertised
    - it's not 30C, much closer to 20C
    - not ready for operation out of the box (soldering connector is required)

    OtherThoughts:

    I use these for RC car, studio lights and flashes and mostly for airsoft replicas. Airsoft replicas require continuous discharge ~20A, so I think those three batteries I've got would last for at least 3-4 years before I would need to replace them.

    Bottomline:

    Highly recomended for airsoft, medium-power RC models, high-power photo light and flashes.
