The SMC Batteries are great. I'm hearing great things about the Intellect 3600 and 3800's. Pinnacle Hobby should be able to get them. Fastcats in Oakville probably has them in stock. Give them a call.

I have ordered batteries through He's got really good pricing for non matched cells if you can make your own pack. As for the IB batteries... I got some about 5 months ago... they didn't impress me as much as the hype that surrounds them now. They may have updated their chemical composition by now, so who knows. Mine are 3600.

However, the GP cells take a beating and work very well...

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

I Really Like the GPs I've had nothing but Good Run Times with them and they seem to last a long time,

I buy them a Boy Toys in Missa, His Price's are Pretty Good and the more ya buy the Better Deals you can make with him.
