Default GP or sanyo

Trinity has both the gp 3300's and the sanyo 3300's...im looking at the 4 cell packs. Comparing the 2 it seems that on average the sanyos have very sight advantage in average voltage, but the gps have more run time. I have also heard that after a while, that the sanyos lose preformance...is this true??? There is a big difference between the team sanyos and GPs in price(almost 30 dollars) so am leaning towords the GPs...what do u think i should get???

Default Get the Gp's

Not tried the trinity brand ones but have run both the sanyo's and the gp's and to say the gp's are better is the understatement of the year..........there,s no comparison.

i don,t really understand it but on paper as you rightly say the sanyo,s appear to have a higher average voltage in practice it feels the complete opposite and as for run time well the gp,s have it too!!!!!

Sorry it seems like an advert for GP's but that,s my personel experience !!

only thing i have to be honest about is i,ve only run each set about 4 times so i couldn,t tell you if this proformace is going to keep up

charge @ 6 amps should see figures of about 4000mah going in
and anything around 3500 coming out @20 discharge (protrak charger used)

Take a look here if your UK www.tjcells.co.uk

Thumbs up GP

Get the GP's and don't waste your time and extra Cha$$$Ching$$$ for the Sanyo's...

GP= Good Price
or
GP=Good Performance

Go with the GP's.

Check out http://www.promatchracing.com and look under latest news. Jeff has stopped selling the Sanyo's and explains why! His products are top notch and his customer service is impeccable.

I have heard rumors that the GP's dont hold up as well as the sanyo's over time. Anyone know how each performs after a while on the track??

thanks
