Default Few questions about IB4200 cells

How robust are the latest generation of IB4200wc cells,
As I need to replace mine soon and all we use in the UK mainly is GP cells.
I'm not new to this but having had no previous experience with IB cells, all feedback would be greatly appreaciated good or bad.

Do you charge them more than once a day,
Do you use them more than once a week,
Have you noticed any kind of drop in performance after 4-5 charges,
What amp rate do you charge at,
What voltage do you discharge down to (5.4v)?
Do you store them with any charge in them when using them on a regular basis.

Thanks for any help.

hi mate,

dont know if this helps or not.i recently(september) purchased 2 4200 shv packs.

as i said do nt know if this helps but i charge at 6 amp,disharge on an eagle racing discharge tray down to .9 volt per cell then put 400 mah into them at 4 amp.this keeps charge into them for about 11 days.the cells dont change at all ive noticed after 4 or 5 runs.ive also read that the cells go bad if they r not used for 3+ weeks sort of thing.again, i dont know if this helps but i do know that these IB's are great cells.
