I have quite a few HK lipos as well but the last time I was looking around I saw that there are brands, Gens ACE for example, available locally for around the same kind of $$ so if you need a battery quick it pays to check out your local shops too.

I recently picked up some lipos a few days ago for my E-Revo. Locally, I was told by other members here that SN Hobbies is has the best selection and prices.

Check out their selection and prices on their website:

Looks like HK it is.. I have yet to find any Gens Ace locally that are any where near what HP sells them for.?? Normally around + $30 over the normal sell price etc..  I do support my locall shop.. but for Batteries they cant come close to the imports etc..  I tried the link to SN hobbies but dont see anything cheap in the Mah and c ratings I use.. But thanks for the help guys!!

I figure a 2S 30C 5300mAh Gens Ace pack for $40 is pretty reasonable.  Similar Turnigy pack is $30 +shipping from HK. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=15519

Now, I don't know what size you are looking for but that's just an example.  Like I say, I own a lot of HK packs and have had no problems with them but the local pricing on lipos has really become much better the last couple of years and it's available today which sometimes is a bigger deal to me than price.
