simple. just measure the 2nd generation cells over 5 minutes and you'll get these numbers.

like rayhuang said, trinity will probably get handpicked cells from gp, cos they are one of the biggest account for gp's rc batts division.

At what rate discharge?? Full runout??

As for the "special cells for Trinity, PMR, Epic, etc etc..." If anyone really thinks that any particular company gets special treatment from a company as large as Gold Peak.. then I have some great ocean front property in AZ for ya.

Trinity has an incredible amount of cells to pick and choose from - thus allowing them to have a higher number of great cells, simply because they are puchasing vast quantities - not that GP went through and tested each cell prior to shipping to Trinity. They might test every so often to ensure that the cells are meeting a given set of qualifications, but certainly nothing close to the matching that RC bettery companies use.

I agree with Wilde- these cells are all silver when they are produced. Do you guys really think they are producing better cells that get a different colro shrink wrap? Hell no. They come off the production line and 3000 get the rainbow shrink, 2000 get the green/orange shrink, next 3000 get the blue shrink.... etc. etc. Those people aren't going to produce a "special" cell and shrink it different for anyone. It would cost too much money in production changes!!!

However, I have heard first hand that GP has promised to try and improve our r/c cells continually, so I might believe there is a new generation of cells that hit the Asian market before it hit the American market. In fact, Danny told me first hand that a smart racer will buy a few practice packs and a few race packs and run the hell out of them because most likely when he gets ready for some more there will be a newer, better cell available. So there's no sense in buying a bunch of packs only to have them becone outdated in 6 months. Makes sense to me....

I'm just glad that that's the only way I can afford packs anyway, so by the time I can afford a couple more, the new batches have likely arrived. I do have to wonder if the reason why GP's cells are improving so fast might be because they realized that our use of them might be one of the most stressful applications of them, so if they work better for us, they'll work better for everything else(like power tools, flashlights, etc.) & everyone benefits......
