Steven,Please do us all a favor and SHUT UP if you dont have ANY experience with a cell.Im about sick of people thinking they should voice their opinion when they have NO experience with a cell.This I hear crap has got to go.So again please HUSH unless you have TRUE experience with them.

Integy's only issue is they match at 20 amps so you dont get to weed out the weaker cells and dont get as close as of a match as companies matching at 30-35 amps.Thats about it really.

The IB3600 was a great cell that had better curves than a GP cell.
The IB3800s have been the same with just more runtime.
1st and 2nd charge are a lil weird but still fast.They really get fast about the 3rd or 4th charge.Im Extremelly happy with mine.
Les

thanks for the feedback guys

but I am not asking about the IB3600/3800's in general...
I am asking about how integy zaps and matches their IB3600's...

they any good when it comes to zapping and matching...?
anything else besides the 20A discharge?

If you want to impress your friends with the #s on your pack, get the Integy ones. If you want your #s on the cells to be true, go someplace else.

I recently stumbled across an interesting article on www.rcworld.ch It was a comparative test by 2 World Class drivers of 4 different types of cells, on the same car, same track, etc. The findings are interesting.

The cells in question were:
Intellect IB3600 G Maxx.
GP 3700.
Sanyo 3600.
GP 3300 SP2.

Now one of the testers was none other than Oscar Jensen - and he knows a thing or two about cells.

I won't bore you with details, just his summary comments.

INTELLECT IB3600 G MAXX. Had the most runtime on the label but less on the track due to lower voltage. Good competition cell.

GP 3700. Has very good power. Best battery for competition.

SANYO 3600. This and GP - you feel the car continuously accelerate. Good battery for competition. Easy to drive.

GP 3300 SP2. Is as good as 3600 if not better. Very good competition cell.

And his recommendations:
1. GP3700.
2. GP3300 SP2.
3. Sanyo 3600/Intellect 3600/G Maxx.

DAVID ALFORD. I don't think you were far off the mark. But of course he doesn't mention matchers by name.

I think I'll stick with my GPs.

That test was done by Orion who only sells GP batteries. Wonder why they said GP's are best

I know Oscar works at Orion, but Orion do plenty of Sanyo - dare I say more Sanyo than GP - yet he still rates the GP.

Either way, it doesn't matter to me. I was simply quoting an interesting test made by....dare I say the most knowledgeable person on cells?

I haven't tried 3600 or 3700 yet. Will make my own mind up when I do. Until then I'll read and weigh up everybody's comments.

The funny part is he says lower voltage but as a matcher, I have found the IB3600's to have higher voltage than the GP3300's. The test was a joke. He could hardly call the Sanyo cells as the best available as everyone knows that they are rubbish at the moment. He is recommending his own cells that is all
