Those new cells seems to have amazing power.

Anders, yeah maybe. Although as you know in Europe it's only IB3600 and GP3700 until April - nothing else newer is technically legal - so yeah even if that statement may be true, maybe they shouldnt' print it until April

Except, not really. I have an IB pack in my hand that has an AV of 1.221, and that's at 35A, not 30A.

Don't get too caught up on those labels, Orion has a few "tricks" for their high numbers.

ok. so the battey wars are on. now all cars are designed for the current size cells. i was told by a matcher here in australia that the current size cells can only remain this current size up to 4500mah's, at which pint they have to go bigger.

iB brought out 3800's, then 4200 only a few motnhs ago, now GP 4300, now iB will want to be king and bring out 4500's (because 4400's isn;t enough i guess )

at which point when the 4500 come out it will be probably 4 months from now. my basic point to this big rant is that, say, a xray T2 which is new, might not even fit the 4500+ cells!!??

Thatīs my point. By wrinting this, they actually lie. And I donīt see the point by doing that realy.

Why? For what?
Itīs more about giving there customer the wrong information.
I expect these to be legal. But thatīs another thing than to say they already are, right?

Actually there is more to a cells performance than a graph or avergae voltage number. We process thousands of cells per month and when we pick out packs for our race team for stk and 19t we will pick high average voltage and not worry about the runtime. It seems like some of the lower runtime cells with high average voltage actually run a bit better on the track. This is what we have noticed so machines are good tools to compare but the track is what really counts.

Since they make the largest volume, they can sell the best packs and always have enough cells for the races without sacrifying quality to the one we buy in the shops


Answer: UH......NO!
