    It says its a new release and pre order. I don't know if the language is the only thing different. It also says 3 part Battery.

    My latest battery I received from another dealer was different, had different writing on the battery, They are all OEM. Specs are the same though. New one on the right.

    It was packaging I believe. They needed to change the outside packaging to reflect the dangerous goods inside.

    The batteries are designed to be able to be left at a lower unchanged rate without ruining them

    I'm sure Msinger will be along shortly with a definitive answer.

    Any real info on that? AFAIK, LiPos don't like being left for long periods below around 10-20%. That's a function of the battery chemistry which, we are all assuming, is the same.
