I have to agreed on that one, but the heat the cell make when are being discharge and being solder are not the same thing and this are creating more
stress on the cell, not all are soldering fast.

And i think this have to do be a safety issue, so you can disconnect the
battery if something happens

Sorry for forgetting about the safety issue.

I may add that i have to change 3 off my cells on the - side off the
battery du to that i have solder to long when adding the pipe (plug)
on this side, and that most off the current are getting out on this
side.

Since you are solder on a very big metal surface on this side
allot off heat are getting very fast into the cell this way.

How many cycles do matchers run cells through before selling them to the public? I think that most matchers have already cycled the cells at 6A charge, 30 or 35A discharge multiple times.

The Swedish federation has now banned the IB4200 cells with batch code "AZCWT". They have also specified that EP4600, EP4200 (with the black ring) and also Team Orion 4200 SHO is allowed in Sweden dispite not being EFRA legal.

As far as I can see of the info released they don't say anything about banning other batches of IB so I would guess all other IB4200 are allowed.

It is possible that the batch code could be on other batteries that are under other 'names'.

Allowing the Team Orion 4200 SHO? which is available to the public yet!

We are still waiting for their 3600 Lipo which was announced ages ago

Not trying to pick a fight but....
How can they allow an unknown/new product?

Can't understand that.
Weird.
It even might be worse (don't know but it could as well be the case???!!)

They can allow it because they drive very expensive cars.

The "Team Orion 4200 SHO"

I don't now how they perform i only now that they have a difrent internal
structure than IB, and they are made difrent (and i hope that thei not blow up), we will have to se.

NO, NO ,NO

Agreed, how will do that any way

YES

I have hope that the new cells will last longer.
Any way, i may not say this the corect way
but if the IB are not coming out whit any new cells
and the only choice you have is to use the cells
that you can get what can we do since alle IB old.
IB cells are used up, we have the run the cells that we can get.

Yes, by that we understand the power of some lobbies.

They say lipo no because is dangerous and have a higher voltage, but as long as it is NiMh bring all the s*** you can find.

kind of weird you said?

And about the voltage I would like that someone measure the real nominal voltage of a zapped NiMh pack. When they say it makes 1,23V @30A each cell the real nominal voltage should be around 1,3v, that would make a pack 7,8v if not more. (And that is why in stock motor racing, people prefer them, they have real more voltage)
