Is it normal for matched batteries to be at 0.0V when you first get them?
what brand you bought those matched cells??

Would go Lipo if I could mate but then I'd have to have 2 different sets of packs - lipos for club racing and Nimh's for the championships and shit...

Friend of mine bought a bunch of SMC batteries and 2 of them were venting from the moment they were charged.
That was about 2 months ago and I can tell you we're not impressed by the cells bought from SMC.

My advice: if you have a local vendor that matches cells, buy it from him. You can be sure he wont sell you packs that have been laying around on a shelf for a month or so.
I've allways bought my packs from a local "small" matcher and they're still alive after 2 years!!

Even if there's a bad cell with a small matcher, he'll be glad to replace it and keep his good name. Try doing that without too much trouble with a "brand matched pack"

Sorry for your misfortune, I love reading these posts though, it shows how much technology has advanced, and gone in reverse at the same times, I've never blow a NicD pack or even lost one, I have mine from years ago :P. I don't go NimH because of all the threads I see of them venting, blowing, dying, too much hassle for me :P

IB cells are very touchy to improper soldering techniques. They are really easy to overheat and ruin. To the guy who had so many bad cells, were the tested before you soldered or after. If aeter soldering, it may not have been the matcher

I dont think its a problem with the matcher. Yes overheating when soldering is a big problem, always use a very hot iron with a large tip, that way you can do each joint in less than 2 seconds and you dont heat up the cells.
