This battery doesn't act like a 35c...more like a 80c by others' standards.... and you can charge it at 30 amps easy (but don't use deans connectors).
The weight makes this the best 4s battery to use in my kyosho (instead of the 'over'amps = 120 grams more for 1500ma more).
It is a true 4s1p battery, with good cell density. you will not lose this battery if you charge it properly, don't let it discharge too low, and don't cross polarity.
They give these batteries a lifetime warranty, because the only thing that can, and sometimes does fail, is internal soldering can create a short in the balance lead over time, and wear.....
I have sent some batteries back, due to this, and they have honored their warranty. I have also re-soldiered some packs on my own (rec packs, not race packs).
Update: one day, while charging at 1C, battery just puffed for no good reason. I guess the days of getting years out of venom batteries are gone.
