    Has anyone tried these?

    Ive ordered 2 packs of Turnigy nano-tech A-SPEC G2 2200mah 3S 65~130C Lipo Pack from Hobby King for my phantom. Hopefully report back good news. Im hoping they will be an improvement over the already good stock battery but same price.

    Specs:
    Capacity: 2200mAh
    Voltage: 3S1P / 3 Cell / 11.1V
    Discharge: 65C Constant / 130C Burst
    Weight: 192g (including wire, plug & case)
    Dimensions: 103x34x26mm
    Balance Plug: JST-XH
    Discharge Plug: XT60 Connector

    Looking forward to hearing your results. Personally, I'm not a fan of extremely-high C rated packs. The Phantom doesn't generally need them (unless you're mainly sport flying, and even then, a good 20-25C pack should be good enough), 65C would drain your battery in less than a minute. The weight penalty for high discharge rate can be prohibitive, too; 192g is a full 20g heavier than a stock 2200, and gives you no added capacity. At that weight, you could have a 25-30c 2700-2800mah cell that significantly outperforms the stock battery. Long flight time is just my own bias though, interested in hearing what application you have in mind for this battery.

    I decided to cancel my order after having read that users had issues with the non G2 versions and said the standard turnigy batteries did just as well if not better. Also issues with easily puffing.
    I looked into things a bit further and have purchased x2 zippy flightmax 30C 2800mah batteries from Hobby King which fit in the phantom still but with couple extra mins flying time.
    These are cheaper too so less of a risk if poor choice.
    Hopefully ok

    Higher mAh at lower C is a good combination for our Phantoms. You may have to be careful not to strain the discharged leads closing the battery door with those 2800s, but I think they're a better choice than the G2.

    Good luck!
