Reedy have released their new EU Spec IB4600, meeting the shorter length specification of 43mm, which have been treated and matched using the Reedy VMX Concept. This process makes these cells even better by applying an intense energy pulse to new IB4600 EU Spec NiMH cells using high-tech equipment designed in house by their engineering staff. The end results of this exclusive process are reduced internal resistance, increased voltage output, and more power. These enhanced cells are cycled then power-matched using a 35-amp discharge a process that eliminates weak cells and those that do not fall within the exclusive percentage that are good enough to be hand selected as Reedy VMX R-46 grade. Available in 5 or 6 cell sets.
