Im with you on this one. I never run to ESC kick-out. I have read that Lipos are basically "dead" at the nominal voltage of 3.7v per cell in the percentage of energy left, so that where I stop also. I also overbuy on capacity and am sceptical of manufactures C rating and ussually figure a 20C battery is probably really a 15C so I figure my amp draw accordingly. I have never had a temperature problem or a puffing problem. OK, I puffed a small lipo onetime by shorting it out but that was my fault and not the batteries. I have some smaller Lipos (750ma) that are 4-5 years old and are starting to get a little anemic but still flyable. I believe if you buy a good product, use them conservativly they last a good long time!!!!!!!!

Happy Flying
Bob
