Anyway, I think that when a new cell comes out it often takes a couple of batches for them to become better so time will tell us who make the best new gen cell

If I understand correctly, the Best cell right now is the IB3800, right?Thats what Danny seem to say and I would completly trust your opinion as you are very knowledgeable about cells and match some many of them

Thank you for giving a little more info about GP37 vs IB38, thank you Danny!

In our testing we have found that the IB3800 has real good power and capacity and so far they hold up as well as any other cell when treated properly.

RC racing at the highest level involves politics. Some matchers have deals with GP and will continue to promote and sell GP. I'm sure that GP is working real hard to make the best possible cell and so is IB. The way I see it both companies will have good products and competition will make the cells better and keep the prices lower.

thank you for taking the time in answering all the questions posted here. As for myself I am constantly reading this thread awaiting for your feedback since you're such an established person in the RC industry. My skepticism about this cell is slowly diminishing and it'll allow me to enjoy the hobby even better. Again, your time, answers and efforts are greatly appreciated.



- Chris

Glad I can help answer questions.

We always track test what we sell and we rely greatly on what our drivers report to us. So far the feedback has been great regarding the 3800. In fact one of our drivers TQed and set a new track record with them at a big oval race. At the HK REEDY race the 1st and 2nd place finisher in the stock class used IB3800 and we had one of our drivers finish 6th in the Invitational class so these results prove to me that the cells are very competitive.

Someone wanted cell sizes. I just saw another thread here that has them.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=77702

IB3600 = 43.2mm x 22.3mm
GP3300 = 43.2mm x 22.6mm
IB3800 = 43.2mm x 22.9mm
GP3700 = 43.2mm x 23mm

I also want to thank you Danny. I appreciate the help you gave me in this thread on the cell venting issue. It's nice to get timely and helpful replies from someone with so much battery matching experience.

Those dimensions seem right on the diameter but a bit off on the length. The cells should be 42.95 or so not 43.2 but it all depends on how they are measured I guess.

Those dimensions actually came from the battery article in the latest issue of R/C Car Action.

The R/C Car Action article indicates that the IB 3800 has the best overall performance (according to their testing) of the cells listed in the above dimension post.

Can't wait to try some of these babies out.

I have a question about Intellect batts before I buy the new 3800. I bought the new version 3600 and when I charge them at 6 amps .20 mv with my pitbull charger, they peak at 4400mah. I have cycled this several times now and still the numbers are the same. Is this safe? The temp is not much hotter than my gp3300. But my gp's peak at 3000 to 3200mah.

When we measure the cells we get 42.93 - 42.98 guees it all depends on the calipers or how hard you press on them.

If they are peaking and not getting to hot then they are fine. The IB3600 is actually more like a 3800mAh cell and the 3800 is more like a 4000 cell.

If your GP3300 are only takeing that low of mAh while charging it means they have been used and not taken care of properly. The charge going in doesn't always mean that there will be more coming out under discharge.
