Default Grepow Ultra Power and Hi Voltage batteries.

Anyone now anything or have any experience with these batts.
From what little info i have gathered they are not legal for ROAR as they are 44mm in length but fall into spec for IFMAR/EFRA.

As far as I can make out these are the Eastpower cells but from the original manufacturer, or if not the original manufacturer then just another shrink.

4500 is the equivalent of the EP Ultra Capacity 4200

4300 is the equivalent of the EP Ultra Voltage 4200

4200 is the equivalent of the EP MII 4200

The 4200 and 4500 are EFRA legal. Interestingly the EP MII is not EFRA legal.

The Grepow cells do not seem to be that widely available compared to the EP ones though.

The Cells are made by Green Power in china, and are BRCA Legal, there not what i would use as a race pack more of a cheap practice pack but for beginners they are ideal.
