It is also a 30 amp pulse discharge not a continuous like the 10 amp Ice. It also has added cooling compared to the ICE. Sounds like they stand behind it. I also am just ranting a little but Li-Po batteries are just as safe. I haven't seen a Li-Po go up at the track but blew up 3 Ni_Mh in 1 race day when 1 caught fire. There is danger in everything we do in this hobby because we are pushing electronics to the maxx to get the best performance.
