thanks in advance.
I know the manufacturer of the Tekin cell pretty well. It's about the only manufacturer that can match the cycle life of Kokam/Orion.
It should be able to recharged well over 1000 cycles with about a 10% loss in capacity. Voltage and IR are usually closely related to capacity in lipo. This greatly depends on storage temperature, storage time, depth of discharge, etc.
You should also notice, that even at a 1C charge rate, this lipo will charge faster than all the other lipos out there. With the standard lipo charge Constant current/Constant Voltage - the Tekin lipo spends very little time during the constant voltage phase.
