hey guys, I need a little help.. anyone can tell me exact weight of an EP4200 cell? I don't have weights around and it's pretty urgent.. Thanks in advance!
Its aprx 450grams w/deans connector installed.

Anyway, I did check my IB packs (5X) a few mins ago because my car lost its punch last weekend and found out that 3 out of 5 packs that I have has a dead cell on it my IB packs are not even two months old

I do use a discharging tray and discharging it at 1.2 volts/cell and Im only using a 27T BL motor and charging it at 5.5amps.

No you did nothing wrong if it was like that when new. With IB pushing the cells to their maximum performance level that most racers want it's a side effect that IB has yet to figure out how to fix 100% but they have gotten a lot better. There's not much a matcher or consumer can do to avoid this other than follow the reconmended storage methods and if one goes dead contact the matcher for replacements.
