The new Ener-G cells have been running great for me!

WAY easier to maintain than the previous IB cells we were getting... I would highly recommend the SMC Ener-Gs!

Ener G cells are great, a lot more stable than IB's.

I know IB4200's have had their issues in the past, but the IB4600's I've been running are plain awesome. I've run the energ cells too, and they are really good as well, but the IB's have a tick more power in my experience.

I just bought 12 energy 4600 last week, and have run them only a couple of times. In off road I am getting almost 25 minutes with a 7.5bl. Awsome batteries.
