Default 4k cells

Hey I was surfing the web. came across these cells . that are list on Maxamps website. I just curious if anyone has tried them. they say there supposed to be slight smaller and light than the the IB 4200's and Ib 3800s.
there cap. is 4000Mah. and are garentee that the volt. are between 1.21-1.25range. but the best part is the price.

I already know that these would not be roar legal. neithe are 4200's last time I heard. here the link.

One thing I would make sure of is what the discharge rate was to get those numbers. It never says in any of there descriptions what was used. In the 3800 and 4200 descriptions, it says 30 amps. Just something you might want to ask before you make an order.

Okay here the deal on these cells. I just phoned Max amps.

Hey said that these are thre own house brand that they bring in from China.
they are match by 30 amp discharge. He also mentioned that these celll are not as good the the new IB4200. He also mentioned that these are decent. I'm no GURU on Cells. So for me to ask questions is kinda hard as not to sure what to ask.
If you guys have any other question they do have a toll free number.
I guess these would make decent club packs.

Here in the UK we are allowed GP4300, IB4200 and we also have another cell which is an SC4000 in yellow heatshrink. It is a different heatshrink as the MaxAmps have it in their own brand. I have been told that these have very good voltage (1.20+) and are from China, aren't they all these days. They have been getting some good results with them - A final at Stock/19 turn National.

Hey Sinclair. I think that they might be the same cells. Like yoiu said just deffenrent labels.

I might just have to try these out.

Well, if you aren't worried if they are Roar legal then they have to be worth a try at those prices. The difference in runtime between them and the 42/4300 isn't really going to be much of an issue in stock/19.
