Default vtec 4200 cells

hi can anyone tell me if the vtec 4200 is the same cell as the ib4200 just relabelled or are they totally different and if so does anyone have any views on how they stack up against each other?

thanks

They all come out of the same factory and are just put into different heatshrink (whatever the customer wants).

Hi:

I'm resurrecting this thread as I've seen pretty crazy values on the labels of the VTECs... 570+ seconds and 1.247+v.... The bests I've seen around doesn't go further than 450 seconds.... do LRP and Nosram match their batteries at 30 Amps???

thanks,
al

Yes, most likely they match at 30A.

A 30amp linear discharge for 570+ seconds would be 4750 mah out put so I don't think that's the method being used. If so they would be able to advertise them as 4600's !

A 25 amp linear discharge for 570+ seconds would be only 3958 mah out put so that would be low on the capacity.

I think they have their own matching system. So comparing cells done on CE equipment to those done on other proprietary equipment is very hard.

Best thing to do if buying the LRP batteries is to compare all LRP batteries to each other find the best pack in that group.
