The E-power 4500 cells are awesome. They have all the high performance characteristics of the EP4200 (very high AV and very low IR) but they do not have the hard self discharge that was the issue with the EP cells. All this and a little extra runtime!

I would definatley give them a try. Customer service is great as well!

The EP cells discharged by themselves rather quickly, that is why you should store them with some charge in them. These new cells [supposedly] do not discharge as fast. I haven't bought any yet, though I am planning on it for the upcoming season.
