Default Trinity EP4600 6C Zapped Vs SMC IB4200 6-Cell Matched Stick Pack

Trying to buy a 6 cell battery pack for racing.

I only want to spend about US$50 per pack.

Both of these packs are at the $50 mark wondering which one was better?


SMC Racing NiMH IB4200 6-Cell Matched Stick Battery Pack (Intellect)
OR
The East power one - which is Zapped and has 4600 mah.


I heard intellect are the best batteries to buy.

Does the mah just mean you get more run time or does it mean more power.

more runtime... the higher capacity ones are better. theres been alot of talk lately of IB's exploding. this seems to happen less with other makers cells.

Not that interested in more runtime just more power.

Thanks for the recommendation

I am wrong in saying they both have the same power.

Are zapped cells more powerful?

the 4600's will give slighly more punch than the 4200's... not much but a little. if you want more power make it 7 cell.

Seven cell? probably for not for racing. Most people I talk to seem to think the EPs are more robust and not nearly as sensitive as the IBs.

Ive had tons of problems with IB's but none with EP's so Id say go with those, they even have a haigher capicity than the Ib's.
