Popping the top of EP cells like shown in that picture is very rare... But it should be noted that EG cells do the same thing... again rarely.

I have no idea on what your are trying to say but just to clarify I am referring to the E-Power 4500 cells and we have matched them at 35amps with results of 1.23+ av. And my second choice after the E-Power cells would be the latest generation of the IB4600s.

guys, hope you reply on this one! just need some info for reference.
what final numbers (capacity) you get after charging your IB4200 or EP4200?
Kindly include parameters you use (charge current, mV/cell, from what discharge cutoff voltage, etc)
thanks guys!

The IB4600s should produce just a little more voltage over the EP4600s, while the EP4600s have a little bit lower resistance. Other guys on the team are reporting the durability is very similar between the two. Overall, it seems the IB4600s have been edging out the EP4600s by a tiny bit.

Be careful of IB4600 SHV, guys!
I have bought 30 cells in HK TQ racing hobby on last week.
6 of them have almost 0V.
Many of them have below 1V.
I don't know what can i do now?
Maybe i have to run in 1st session with 4 cells decent and 1 cell half dead.
I will never to buy IB cells anymore in HK, these batteries which sold by these selfish guys make me so frustrating and disgusting.
Maybe i have to wait for Orion 4600SHO.

I like the Ep cells and Energy green and black cells are good along with the energy blue cells they are good also.

We have not tested the new Ib cells yet,but we are hearing good things about them.

Thanks

The new IB cells have been very good lately. As long as you take care of your packs and stay consistant with your conditioning they will stay good.

If you have a cell equalizer or a decent discharge tray, make sure you use that prior to charging. No matter the brand of battery, this will help keep them from doing stupid stuff. Also when charging keep and eye on the temp. This is a big thing that many overlook. I usually try to keep my cells from going above 120*f.

After the race let them cool off and discharge them. Then before packing them up put about 1000 mahr back into them so when they start to discharge themselves through the week they wont die on you.

I would reccomend that you purchase your packs from Trinity. First of all since you already have a credit it will help with the cost. Plus the packs perform on the track.
