I've tried being stingy on NiMH cells. I bought the Elite cells offered by cheapbatterypacks.com. A bunch of the cells died. Then again, a bunch of my EAM IB4200WCE cells have died, too.

At this point, if I was trying to save money, I would get the new EP4300 cells.

I haven't purchased the 4.4k packs from MaxAmps but I did purchase some of the 4k packs and have found them to be very good so far. I purchased batteries off cheapbatterypacks.com and they were all junk. Hope this helps.

I have a Orion and Pole Position IB4200 packs and have had cells go bad in both of those packs I talked to Tom at SPC about this and he informed me that the IB4200 cells leak power quickly at very diffrent rates per cell so when I was discharging my packs after storage or use some cells would be half full and others would 3/4 full and I would be overdischarging the cells that were 1/2 charged. In effect damaging the cells. He told me to put them on a tray to discharge them individually and skip using the whole pack discharger. Also attach a soldering heatsink clamp to the positive terminal when your soldering your packs as there is a little rubber diagphram under the positive side that can melt and short the cell out.
