800AR's or new Sanyo 1300's in Push E Cat

I am interested in a version 3 Push e cat,
and I would like a fast charge cell batt
pack. Would 800AR's or the new Sanyo cp1300's work. I would get an 8 cell batt
pack. Thanks in advance.

I'm using an 8 cell 800AR pack right now and they work fine. Since the CP1300's weigh the same and have more capacity, I think they'd be even better. I'll have to build an 8 cell pack and try it. I did put a 7 cell CP1300 pack in my Razor - worked well.

Ralph,

Where do you purchase the CP1300's? It sounds like the CP1300's will make the 800AR's obsolete.

Thanks.

Ralph sells them at his site (check his profile for his website). I'll be stocking them . . . eventually.

The 800AR cells are a very good cell that can handle a lot of current - in fact, a lot more than you would throw at it with a Speed 400 motor. They are somewhat "overkill" for the Speed 400 motor. For the same weight/size, you could get more duration from other cells like the CP-1300 or NIMH 1600 cells.
In some situations with hot motors and higher currents, though, you still need the 800AR cells, which are being replaced by the CP-1300.

Shawn,

Are you saying that the 800AR's can put out more current than the CP1300's? If so, then it's even harder to chose between the two kinds of batteries.

To confuse you a little further, 1400AEs are also the same size and weight and are good for sp 400/480 applications and they are cheaper than the CP1300s ($3.50 vice $5.00).

I have three packs I have been using for years.

The CP-1300SCR cells and the N-800AR cells weigh the same, but the similarity end there. The 1300's are a 1/2 subC and the 800's are an A cell. The 1300's have a lower internal resistnace and will do better at higher currents than the 800's. I doubt that Sanyo considers the 1300 as a replacement for the 800 since they are different size.
