Good all around cell.
The Ib's seem to yield better average voltage and runtime though.
The IP's are about the same having LOW resistance which is good.
Care is about the same as a IB as well.
I would be going to www.kinetixrc.com and getting a smoking deal on IB's.

These cells are really good cells. I am in a good spot to talk about it because I had the chance to try both IP and IB because of some ''special rules'' at some races. For myself, I like the IP better, they are more consistent, they have a very low IR which is really good, and they have good runtime too.

The best cells hands down...they are the same size as a gp 3300, just a tad taller the dia. is smaller..these cells rock...1.200 voltage 500+ run time ...no trays needed to make power...only use smart tray with these cells...

these cells CANNOT go beyond .9 cutoff....when the light goes out on the integy its to late...you better off taking the cells down to 5.40 on a turbo 35...than tray them to .9 on the smart tray before/after every run...the integy tray takes the cells down to zero way to fast...under .9 its like 6-10 amps thats way to much under the voltage threshold.....

sooner or later your cells will drop off one by one....going beyond .9 will do the most damage to these type of cells....gp they can take way more abuse..

The IB and IP are each designed differently and require a different type of maintence for long life and top performance. Does it mean one cell is better or will last longer....no not at all. Just that they are different and need to be treated in their own way.

You want to put the battery on the tray right before you charge it to equalize the cells. After a run discharge it down to 5.40.

Funny thing about these thoughts...

I bought a couple of practice packs from a guy that uses a novak flatline on his IB's before everyrun. They still take a good charge and run perfectly on the track.
