Default .01 volt how much does it matter?

So i was grading some of my cells and i have cells that are 1.17, 1.16, 1.15 and 1.14. Will i really notice a difference if i build a pack out of those cells vs all 1.17's? 5 cell 1/18th stock class.

no, you shouldnt be able 2 feel the difference.....its only .05 of a volt.....if you had a pack with 100 cells...it would be a 1volt diff....thats a significant diff. but 0.01 it fine

sounds believable....just another way 2 make this xpensive hobby even more xpensiv...

.005v....wats that like.....i think that is the voltage that naturally surrounds the body....i have stuk a multimeter 2 myself and got readings as high as 0.25 volts...static possibly?? or the pulse from the void in my head 2 my heart???...or nerve readings??
