That EP was designed as a subliminal message.
It indicates that Extra Protection is needed!

my new year project is to build a perplex box, with vents and fans inlet/outlet, and charger outside the box.. well, it should at least protect the user almost 90% of the time other than handling the battery and fitting it into the car...

Nobody demanded anything, the cell industry simply redesign their cells with more capacity (and the extra voltage that comes with it) and the matchers do their thang with their matching equipment. Its a constant loop out there...

I'm not blaming anyone.

I have had a set of Full Throttle Motorsport's, Fusion power and I have seen 2 Eurotek cells blow up. For a fact I know it is the batteries and not the matchers.

i agree steve...the matchers have to deal with this garbage they are being sold by the cell manufacturers...manufacturers like IB and EP need to get this remedied so the matchers can sell us stuff and not have issues...

i have bought dozens of packs before and never once had a cell issue until now....
