Isn’t this just a relabeled GP3700 for the overseas market? At least that’s what I was told by a reputable battery matcher…

No Trey, it is a relabeled IB3600.
GP3700 would be 20% more expensive than GP3300, this cell is 20% cheaper than GP3300.

I can see a business opportunity here, might buy thousand of IB cells and relabel them to : MIVEC 3800

To anyone that already have those batteries:

Is there a special way to treat them compared to GP3300? (charge Amp, discharge etc)

Hello nnick,

I am using a LRP Pulsar Competition 2 and the best settings for me have been 5,5A and 15-20mV delta peak, Linear charge mode, no trickle.

Delta peak should be adjusted, that the cell temperature is about 50°C at the end of the charge.

Cheers
Andy

My lhs has even better numbers but my question is if someone has used those batteries. What I need is comments on their performance and charging tips if any.

Sorry for my late reply.

In my opinion, the Vtecs have better runtime then GP3300 and feel much more "juicy" on the track. I am happy with them and go for the Vtecs on every race I went lately.

Cheers

Last Sunday I raced with my new Vtec's and GP3300 both LRP for the first time

Charge at 5.5 at 5mV

GP's were a little more punchier than Vtec's. Also, Vtec around 4:30 there was a noticable decrease in power. (I still have enough power to finish)

Hello,

I have noticed the exact difference. I think your delta peak is too low. With 5mV, they don´t get the right temperature. Temperature should be around 50°C.

Cheers
Andy

Forgot to state that the charger is the CTX Cell Master from Much more.

Next time I'll try with 10mv

I used the following settings:

Charge at 6.0 amp 20mv
The battery still didn´t get too hot. Around 40°C.
Then I peaked just before the race with the same settings.
The results, well you know them...

In the first two minutes punch was very impressive. Then the performance droped a little and stayed constant for the rest of the 5minute run.

This battery DEFINITELY needs the heat... when it's too cold at cutoff (everything below 45°C is too cold!), the internal resistance of the cell won't be were it could be...

We found, after lots of testing with different methods, that all which matters for best performance is the temperature of the cell (when you put it on the track). We had best experience with a cutoff of 50-52°C.
