It appears the maximum base is constrained by the computer's available memory. For example, i = 10000!; Table[IntegerLength[i, 2^b], {b, 1, 2^16}] works (note the maximum base used here is $2^{2^{16}}$, or $2^{65536}$), but i = 10000!; Table[IntegerLength[i, 2^b], {b, 1, 2^32}] doesn't, and produces an error: General::nomem: The current computation ...
