U-Review: Value Hobby GForce LiPo Battery

Your electric RC can have the most powerful brushless motor on the market and be geared to hit 90mph, but without the right battery nothing else even matters. When my beloved Gens Ace pack started to show signs of wear, I knew it was time to purchase a new pack. I decided to try something new and more inexpensive, so I went with this GForce pack from valuehobby.com.  Read on and find out if this pack was worth my hard-earned cash or if I should have just grabbed another Gens Ace pack.

This 5000mAh 2S LiPo came in a bubble-wrap insulated envelope. I would like to see it come in a hard box simply because that would protect the battery more sufficiently during shipment. I am, however, very pleased with the shipping.Value Hobby uses USPS shipping for a cost of $3.99 on most orders. You’d be hard pressed to beat that shipping cost.

This pack cost $23 shipped, so what can you expect? Great performance is what you can expect! This pack simply blew me away in the performance aspect. It held its full capacity of 5000mAh consistently and felt punchy.

There aren’t too many hard-case packs out there that can beat this pack as far as bang-for-your-buck goes.  I would highly recommend this to someone on a budget.Hunter Wick, Texas

  1. As a retread to the RC community after nearly 30 years the lipo craze was another choice I had to make when buying new products. After reading this my choice in batteries won’t be dictated by cost alone.

    1. Please understand that I did not give this lipo a thumbs up simply due to the amazingly low cost. Like I said in the review, the pack performed great, especially when you take the $23 price tag into account. I agree about not letting price completely control what you chose to purchase, but keep in mind that many times nowadays the more “budget” marketed products are just as good if not better than the more expensive competition, but this is just my finding over the years.

  3. I bought one for my 4×4 slash and it worked ok got good run time and it was just ok as far as punch

    but with that said I bought one of there nano tec 6500 and this thing is a beast in my slash and I bought 2 more and will use nothing else now

    so dont look at the brand name and just buy this lipo you will not be sorry as it is a beast and the 5000 I’m now running in my axial scx10 and it is a beast in it so just get the right lipo for the right use and things will be GOOD!!!
