Will the new CP1300's be suitable for this?

I understand that the Sanyo 800AR/AE class cells are being replaced with a new cell designated as CP-1300 (same weight as the 800's but higher capacity). I am no engineer (ask my buddies ), so I need some help.

I am running 8x800AR's in my Rittinger Sport Twin, which is a ~28 ounce twin speed 400 with CAM 5x5 props. I put the 800 pack in stick configurations so they fit into the front of the fuse. Will the CP-1300's increase the run time without diminishing my performance? Can you charge the new cells at 3amps or so?

The CP-1300SCR cells have more capacity, less internal resistance and the same weight as the 800AR cells. See www.magtechinc.net/Cells.htm for more info.

IT seems that the CP-1300 are an all around better cell, even for the internal resistance. If the 800 AR could handle it, the the CP-1300 could as well, and for 50% longer. Nice.
