Default H-cell 4500ma batts

H-cell 4500ma
I found these batts on a web site (rcmart), so chasing big numbers i order'd some but i won't recive for a few weeks.Iv'e been using IB 4200's as you do...
Has anyone had any experiance with them,,,,,I know big numbers don't always mean big returns....but lets find out..

If non of the big matchers are using them by now I don't think I would trust that they are very good. Is this the pack you mean?

If so why spend $42.00 + on something unmatched?

You can get some very good matched cells with great customer service here.

Just my biased opinion though!

Be paitent,
There are some new Gp 4300 coming out very soon, these cells will be better than the current IB's in that you wont have the high rate of cell failure .......
I am getting my grubby hands on some of them this week to try out ,
both harris rc and feral will be matching them

Yes the failure rate of the ib 4200 is a concern,,,I was test running a boat in my test pool and can here the ib4200 doing small vents while dis charging... it's only cause i can here them right in fnt of me,,,while running on the track who knows.... but testing these batts after and there OK mystery...

I prefurr to run lipo in all other rc gear, but to race my WCE cyclone at the track i must use sub c pack and the ib's are all the rage so was forced to buy sub c's. and now i'm starting to really enjoy comp racing and looking for every inch i can get out of my car,my driver skill is another thing altogether lets not go there..

Can someone explane the term's IB,,EP,GP and witch is used for what???

IB-Intellect Batteries
EP-East Power Batteries
GP-Gold Peak Batteries
Like tallyrc said just different battery makers, and if you are looking for high capacity, GP will be releasing a 4600 soon, wich I am sure all the big name matching companies (ie. SMC, Orion, Peak, etc...) will be putting out
