Those numbers are average. I have been testing them alot. I have seen 490's at 35 amps and 1.24 volt cells. These cells are even more solid and stable than EP4200's

I heard some of the EP 42's are just relabled 46's anyhow. I had one of my EP 42's take on 4800mah's the other day. So do we truely know what it is we are getting with any of these cells?

can't wait to try the EP4600's. I am tired of IB's reliability problems. I heard Danny from SMC slapped a "return to sender" on all the IB cases that were recently in Customs and it was a large amount of cases

I can answer that. YES they are. I have be cycling various cells and packs mutiple times a day for 3 weeks. They keep cycling out at the numbers when they were first new. They have only varied when I have changed my process to figure out which process is the best. I think the best part for the customer is they are the same price as the 4200's.

Yeah, I am starting to think there could be a new set of numbers from matchers. Average voltage for the first 4 (maybe 5) minutes.

4800 went in, but on a discharger, what came out! THat's the part that matters, and you can never get out what you put in.

Have you measured?

Whats the deal with the heatshrink saying 'Enriched Power' on the size rather than 'East Power'? They look like East power cells, so why the change of name?

Unfortunately I did not dump it after that since I was just charging for storage purposes. If I get it to do that again I will dump it after and see what is left in it. I use a GFX to charge so tracking what was in it should not be an issue.
