Default Battery Peak Voltage Question

Guys can you explain how the Batteries peak voltage, translate conditions of the cells???

is it the higher the voltage reached the better or is it the other way around???

Thanks in advance for all replies good day!!!

First of all, only use it as a comparison between cells of the same type and cells in your own pitbox. No benefit in boasting about low peak voltages at the track, it is not a universal measurement.

Second, higher peak voltage indicates greater internal resistance which results in less rip on the track.

As your cells get older and weaker the peak voltage will rise, example is that my IB4200s are 18 months old now and peak at about 9.4V, whereas when brand new they peaked at a little over 9V.
