A cell that can truly live up to its ratings . It has a capacity of 2100mah, doesn't heat up excessively (like other cells) at 15C, and has a good capacity at 15C. IMO, that's an awesome cell!

Can't believe I missed this one- I was waiting for RD to finish testing this cell. Looks like despite insinuations otherwise by users, I guess we can put to rest the idea that these are the same cells as the TP Prolites.

These cells do look like a very solid 12 C lightweight battery.

RD, were you ever able to get clarification from Barry Hou whether this cell you tested was the Mk3 Version 1 or 2? I'm not advocating you test every cell out there but do we know which one this test is on???

With thanks,
e

I am really happy with the Apex packs I have bought. Unfortunately, I lost one of my 2100MaH 15C packs when my Stryker was going so fast the nose cone and hatch violently separated from the plane. Who knows where the pack landed - I searched a long time but couldn't find it. I lost a 12C pack the same way. I will definately be buying more of these gems. From what I can tell, the graphs above support what I suspected - a quality pack for a great price. While these are available, I'll never buy a TP or other big name brand pack.

Actually, the graphs show that this is a 1900mAH 15C cell at best.

It holds voltage reasonably well, don't get me wrong. Pretty nice pack, and I would buy one or so... but this graph isn't exactly full of praise and sighs of relief for a pack that advertises 2100mAH at 15C cont.

Nice to see another decent manufacturer none the less.

PS: It finished at 144 degrees celsius. Isn't 140 degrees the point at which lipo cells start "degrading" faster?

e,

Just back from AK, catching salmon.

It's the MK2.

MKII? Or is there an MKIII version 1 and 2?

If that graph is an MKII(?) then these packs are yet to be tested and may have better capacity.

Have the 1350's been tested yet? I don't think I saw them in the battery vault.

I do not mean to speak for RD, but I believe this graph is of the MkIII version 2 and are the latest APEX cells. The title of the graph is correct and post 6 probably meant version 2.

RD: did you freeze/ smoke some salmon so you can enjoy all year long?

Yo e,

30 lbs of fillets, honey and brown sugar smoked, shrink wrapped and frozen. You can have one @ the grocery store price: $25/lb. NOT! *chuckle*

I expect you're right about the cell version, but I can't be sure, because it was intimated at the time that a later version was coming soon.

You should catch 'em yo'se'f, Blaze - you're over half way there, compared to my takeoff point - right coast, US.

Rd , if these are the cells I sent you , they are early MK3 v1. The second gen pack is far more potent, and althought I havent done any CBA testing, my Trex tells the story quite well.

BTW, have you done any real world testing on the cells ie. put them in a plane and fly them? I think you will be pleased with the outcome...

Take care, Dave Harris

No, Dave, I haven't flown them. Most of the cells in my post in the vault I've not flown.
