Default Anyone have experience with PULSE LIPO's

My G500 runs GensAce 6S 4400's, and I get 5 minutes discharging to storage level (3.8 v per cell), but I found these Pulse batteries that will fit (158 mm vs 145 mm long and same width; the trays will handle it), which are 5000 mAh 45C, and I figure I can get another 30 seconds or so of flight time (13.6% more mAh), and the price isn't ridiculous; $140 w/o the EC5 plugs.
However, I haven't heard of them before and want to know if anyone else has experience with them.
Thanks!

I have been flying pulse 6S 5000 X 2 in my Mostros for 1.5 years now.

6 of the packs now how over 500 cycles on them and still show IR in the sub 3.5 range. They charge well and balance well.

That being said in the last couple months I have noticed 2 of the packs take about 10 min longer to balance than the others. So I think come Black Friday I am going to be replacing those packs with new Pulse packs.

Quick disclaimer
I charge all my packs at 1.5 C, always balance them, and never store them charged.

Had to cancel the order; TSA won't let me fly with batteries that are >100 watts (nominal), and the 5000 mAh x 22.2 = 111 W. The largest I can travel with is a 4400 mAh (4400 x 22.2 = 97.68 W).

Dont know if it can help, but they make a 4500mah.

I buy used Pulse Ultras, they are even better than the Turnigy blues I used to fly.

I don't think I ever bought a new battery.

A website called EP buddy sell some batteries that are much better than pulse and a good deal less money I have been flying these glacier brand battery's for years now and same thing they balance well come identical cell voltage and are very powerful. When I order I get them in 2 days no matter what!

Store
