With new year coming, thought a lighter new thread would be welcome...

In the older thread, Bret "The Jet" asked ...

"I was wondering what's in the near future...Higher voltage, runtime, or even lower resistance???
Are we looking at a new cell soon, or just improvements on the current WC4200???

Thanks, Bret
"

There shouldn't be any higher voltage for the next few months at least.

Intellect is now focusing on making the IB4200WC cell more stable, ideally totally eliminating the occasionnaly shorted cell issue. Their current cell have slightly less voltage (approx. -0.004V) but the Actual Internal Resistance has been been improved (approx. -0.1mOhm) ...

Cells' power is generated via voltage and resistance so the end result is yet great performances on the track.

Steve, What do you think the mah of the batteries is going to be this year? Sticking to 4200 or maybe a big or little leap? Just curious if you have a time frame of IB's product plan. One of the series that I compete in is thinking of locking the battery rule at 4600 and I wanted to know if that was a reasonable rule with what will be available.

Happy New Year!

mAh...

LARCGuy said:
How about both.
The mAh on IB4200WC has been anywhere from 4000 to 4475 depending of the batches of cells ...

Like I said in an earlier post emphasis is now put on cell's reliability.

Intellect is likely to release a higher capacity cell later in 2007 ... we can only speculate on what the nominal capacity is going to be rated at ...

Since you're asking, I would personnaly set the rules to 4200mAh (nominal) until Sept. 1st 2007
