I bought some of these SHV's. I just need some batteries for this season. I tested 30 of these one dead cell. I ll try to convince it later
I used ctx charge on 2 of these cells to see whats the deal...
one cell was at 1.649volts the other was at 1.589V when it peaked out. 32.9 and 33.7 celcius. roughly around 3900 mah...
I ll charge them all to see the values then build couple packs and test them...
IB4200 are fine (usually LOL) I had cuple of them blow up on occasion, but we love living on the edge
The old 4200's were much better compared to the WC series.
they have deifnately done something as the old IB4200 weighs 69gr and the WC is 79gr. 10gr is huge for a cell IMHO.
I have 3 orion 4200WC which are stable and fast.
I have 2 zeppin 4200WC which are not stable but fast
I have 2 yokomo 4200s which are stable, slow but light
I have 4 SMC 4200s. Unstable, slow but light weight
they are going to my drift car
I thing the best batteries I have ever used were the sanyo 1700SCR, Sanyo 2400SCR and GP3700
what ever came after the 3700 left question marks floating in mid air...
To sum it, if you wanna go out witha bang use IB4200WC
(I had 4 blow ups. 1 in car, 2 in charge, 1 in cycle) no incuries Luckily
I think in the end due to being more unstable, we will all endup switching to Lipos unless one o these manufactureres makes abattery that actually works...
