I bought an orca pack. a 6200 as it weighs the same as my 6500 smc packs. but i think 1 gram lighter. not a big deal over 1 gram. any thing else was either too heavy or too light. my car is balanced pretty well so im buying according to weight sorta.

He is looking at the Internal Resistance in the battery. If you use a ICharger or a Powerlab and a few other chargers measure the IR the lower the IR # are the more punch the motor can get out of these batteries. 1-3 IR are good batteries 3-5 are marginal 5-7 shakey. These numbers really only matter in the blinky classes. In mod many drivers don't charge the batteries all the way up to take some of the punch away from the lower turn motors.
There are people here that will explain IR better than I can such as CraigMBA who taught me about it.

Check back around the 6th-8th of January. Read somewhere SMC was expecting a large shipment in. The post did not specify what was coming in but it should be worthwhile to check the site. I am in the same boat as all. Great packs and great prices.

From EA

The IR and Voltage are better than the last batch. Still no where near as good as stuff we had last winter. But Im told they had to change some things inside (chemicals) due to new regulations and its whats causing the differences. They are still trying to get everything back to normal with these new regulations.

Yep, Weight and the lowest IR you can get.

If your track doesn't check voltage or temperature, a heating pad set on low will do just as well to lower IR. JUST DONT GET CAUGHT.
