FYI: they're also called IP or Infinite Power in the USA.

IB's because they take high abuse and have high volts and then IP's because they have super low internal resistance and a lot of punch!

Speaking of GP vs IB, how is the life of the IB's these days? In other words I have gotten several hand me down GP3300 race packs that are still fast after years and all kinds charge/discharge cycles while the set of IB3300's I got new were only fast for a few months and then fell off. Now that IB has gotten better do they continue to be fast after lots of cycles?
