Default Need new packs, what brands?

So long story short, I need to buy new packs. Mainly for my X7 and logo stretch.

They both share packs, which I know some say isn't the best, but it's what I've got Haha. The X7 obviously is a 12s setup using two 6s 5000 packs and the logo I use just one 6s 5000.

I have some really old pulse packs that have been good to me given they are dated 2014, and I got them used in 2015. I do take care of my packs since i domt fly them below 3.8 volts and keep them at storage charge if they sit for more than a day.

However, I've had to drop some money to her back flying again so my budget for new packs is smaller than it would have been.

I would get another pair or two of pulse, but I've been looking around some and have a question or two.

I'll narrow it down to three brands, and I know they are probally vastly different, but between pulse, glacier and the turnigy graphene packs, which would be the better choice for the budget minded. Keeping in mind that if I get pulse I can only get 2, whereas if i got the graphene i could get 3 or 4 packs, especially with their 15% off sale right now.

I have read the graphene seems to be pretty good, but I've been out of the hobby for a year or so and I k ow things change really fast so I figured I'd ask to see if I'm wasting money or saving money

Found this thread same issue here. Have a favorite old Trex 600 Pro from 2011-ish? and her Turnigy 4500's have pretty much given up the ghost.

Ordered a pair of these today (Father's day sale):

Will report back

Default HRB Batteries

HRB batteries now has a USA dealer. I would suggest looking into their Graphene batteries.

I fly an X7 in both a 2 blade and 3 blade configuration. I run the Graphene 6S 5000 packs. They also have stick packs for the 700 machines. I think you will be pleased with their performance and price point. There have been some nice testimonials from people like Mitch Marozas and others.

They are on facebook at HRBUSA and also on the web at
