I have been matching these cells for nearly 8 months. The cells are quite good but I feel at the moment taht they are not the equal of the IB4200WC cells that I am also matching.

They also have a high self discharge so you must not leave these cells discharged to 0.9 volts. You must keep a charge in them at all times

They've been around for quite a while. There is a thread about Orion matching them around here somewhere.

From what i'm told, they are good - maybe about the same as IB SHV, but IB WE are better. That comes from someone that has had them in a car.

actually the fusion guy was at vegas giving them to people to try free with a how do they do report. I don't know what others thought but I killed a cell doing my normal charge on them. numbers didn't look bad I still have a 4cell as a practice pack. gave the 6cell to some kid racer so I didnt have to take it on the plane and add more weight.

I used a pack of the prior to getting hooked up with maxamps. The cells are not superior to IB cells at all. The discharge seemed to be rather fast and the power seemed to deliver a quick and early punch but left my 4 cell 1/12 crying for the power toward the end of a qualifier.

I was willing to try new but I was not willing to sacrifice my run time. I zapped the cells to see if this would bring them to life with the integy battery zapper and still not the result I was looking for. They were stronger than the 3300's that I had even after I zapped them, but maybe the cell will improve with time. After getting a taste of the IB4200's from maxamps I could not go back to using the cells not even in practice.

Whomever in the UK that is hyping these cells up to you is blowing smoke up your ass. They are no where near the performance of the IB cells.

I would haveto agree with Anthony on this one I am in the process of trying to se if the pack would be worth using at all and I have reduced it to behind my 3300's... When nitro season starts back up they will be part of the 12 pack that is put in my Mugen starter box, to me they appear to be good application cells but just not what I personally and obviously a few others are looking for in a race ready pack.

Dont be fooled IB's will be the way you will have more success.
