Nimh of 4200 or higher will have the best power and runtime.

I've been having the best luck lately with the EP4200 cells. The IB's are hit or miss...if you get a good pack then you're set but if not then you're fighting self discharging and flat-lined cells, the GP4600's are problematic from what I've been told and the 4.4k's are just plain bad.
