Yes. Big voltage and big run time. I believe they will be available in late April to early May.

Default Epic 3800's....

These cells are identical to the Intellect 3800’s, just with different shrink-wrap (Trinity, the master of re-labeling)… And naturally, they’ll be overpriced….

I was referring to the price comparison between the Epic 3800's and the Intellect 3800's..

Where did I hear this??? Well, let’s just say it’s no secrete, and there will be others that will confirm this as well…

I don't think it has been conveyed as a secret that it is an Intellect cell. Everyone know's that EPIC/Trinity is not a battery "manufacturer".

For racers its just more capacity to end up discharging and wasting and longer on the charger. I think if the cell capacities get any higher maybe we should be extending races, even 6minutew races would be alot better

These batteries will be the word. I saw a pack that was 495, high 1.17s... I've heard of some 35 amp numbers with over 400 seconds of runtime. Sick!

Curtis is right, its the same cell, different shrink.

I guess it will be overpriced though???? Thats impressive to know considering neither Trinity or anyone else selling the IB3800's have released prices.

I agree Adrian, and it might be here faster than we realize.

All I can say is CE better get on the ball developing software to upload to the GFX for Lipo...

The funny thing about Trinity selling the Epic 3800 is that there is only one importer for IB into the US... funny how the tables can turn, huh?
