Default GP3300, GP3700 or IB3800

Hi all,
need to get new batts, which one will you get and why? Currently I have IB3800 and GP3700, it seems that GP3700 is more lasting compared to IB3800. Still very punchy compared to IB3800.

I heard GP3300 is good but not sure in what way?

Please advice.
Thanks.

Hiya

Get the GP3700, more punchy than the IB3800, and will outlast the IB as well..

If you are looking to get New 4200's, i would get the East Power 4200, nice and punchy, and much more durable compared to the IB's

Cya

Sorry but I have to disagree

IB3800 have much more power than GP3700, although you are right about their longetivity.
IB4200 are better than EP too

Check here http://www.promatchracing.com/products.php?cat=20 that EP doesn;t have same numbers as IB and promatch isn't a small store not to have the best of anything

IB3800. The most punch out of sub c's I experienced before I went lipo. Run times were good and IMO, they were durable. 4200, but they are very finicky because of the low internal resistance. IB3800 rule!

Those 4200's suck major donkey doo. I see some IB 3800's in the background of one of those pics, sitting pretty though. Let those had been lipo and the haters would have been out in droves!

I have seen IBs do the same thing at last years regional. It doesn't matter both brands will do that under certain circumstances. Their all just as deadly as the next battery. The potential is their, it just a matter of when.

Um, Carlos, no one said no brand wont explode. I was only mentioning that he had some IB 3800's in the foreground. Dude, relax...we know sub c's are "venting" because li-pos are "blowing up" in the r/c world....nice use of onomatopoeia huh, yea... I know.

You obvisouly have never ran the 3700 sp2-mpv ? , much more punch than the ib3800.

Also the EP's mite be off by 0.01v per cell, but they have much more consistant power during the run.

I have and I think the IB3800 have more punch and better longevity. I find the GP's "soft". Remember, this is personal opinion, no one is stating its a fact across the board.

I had used the 3700 you say but my IB felt punchier. Maybe your version of IB wasn't the newest one

When I do run sub c, IB 3800 and even the 3600 are my cellks of choice. Punch and run time. GP gives good run time, but feel sluggish after the first couple of minutes IMO.
