Questions?? Much More Impact FD Batteries with FLAT discharge?

Much More has released a new line of batteries.

http://www.redrc.net/2013/05/much-mo...es/#more-66781

If you see the discharge graph as shown in REDRC, it looks VERY impressive. It goes back to the good ole days of NiCd battery discharge curves. This would give a SIGNIFICANT advantage especially in stock or 17.5 racing. But having been in this hobby for way too long, I smell BS...

Can anyone who owns fancy chargers (that show discharge curves at 30 or 40 amps) verify these claims?

My charger / discharger is only a Duratrax ICE (10 amp discharge). So when I plot curves using this, the Lipo curves already seem pretty flat for all my battery types (Thunder Power, Turnigy, REVTECH). I understand that the higher the discharge rate (30 or 40 amps), the steeper the curve.

We have used these for about a month in mod racing:

http://www.muchmoreracing.net/produc....php?pidx=1235

And we are quite pleased with them. Replaced LRP 6000 racing packs.

I have not made any tests on them or anything to substantiate the flat discarge claim, but on a 5 min. run fastest time are often in the middle/end of run maybe indicating that power is relatively constant. The cells are charged to 4.21 per cell. But this is mod, plenty of power always......may be different in stock.

Same cells as the new Intellect SHV, so they've not been around long.

Might as well get the Intellects though since they're cheaper...

from where do you have this info?

i used intellect for the last two years and loved them.
but i've heard that the new intellect shv have 4,35v per cell and aren't really competitive when they got charged to 4,2v...
the only reason why i'm looking for another brand...

have you got other infos?
as i know the muchmore fd only should have a better discharge curve but still 4,2v per cell

I would be interested in an answer to the OP's original question. Surely someone's reading this and could run us an accurate graph of comparison? )

I've recently got a couple of IP batteries but skipped the flat discharge version (didn't know about it). It's good to know they show fast laps nice and late but something more concrete to go on would be fantastic. Then I know if I should budget for one.

Great info on the voltages from TomTurbo too, my fast charger is also up to 8.4. I would miss out like him it seems.

not the intellect, the muchmore batteries are the ones with the flat discharge curve

so im really interested if the new orca 6200 100c hv batteries and of course the muchmore fd are also 4,35v cells...

Yes the new ORCA HV batteries are the 4.35V cells.

Has anyone tested the new intellect 100c against the older 90c? Both my new 7800's are out performed (average voltage) by my one year old 7600's.
