Default And.........

They are also...non zapped with very low voltages.

I ran some to check and they are not matched.

thanks
Steve

refer to Fukuyama website.
it says these cells,although are matched , do not have the strict tolerances as those u can get from other matchers.

Yes, that is correct. Those are prematched but have a very high varience in voltage and runtime. This info was confirmed and related to my by a reputable GP distributor.

some charge their cells at 5 amps, others at 6 amps before under going the 20 to 35 amp discharge

seconds and numbers very rarely can be compared from one battery matching company to the next.

don't be the donkey chasing the everlasting carrot flavored gop-stopper

You can take Reedy out of there. Mike and Sean have been using Turbo 4's for several years now! Walter

It has been several months but I had pretty extensive contact and almost made an opening purchase from GP America for a multi-case purchase and all GP cells in a 96 count case comes in matched sets of six batteries. I could not get specific info on GP Asias matching method or the specific machines used in matching, but was basicly told they are massive high volume computer controlled matching systems; hehe, what ever that means :-)

Default Re: We have some good cells....

Steve Hill from HillTop batts, the boat guy? I bought some stuff of yours a few years ago... when we were all PO'ed about the battery of the day problem (not that this has changed much), and venting on Hank's old site...

I think these were 2200 packs (powertool NiMHcells, right?), the red cell with no specific shrink wrap... this was decent, very affordable, robust stuff, I still used it for practice a few months ago.

Guys, if Steve says it, I think you can believe him...

Good to see you're still around!

Hi Paul,

Yes it's me....the "Green Meanies" HRSC 2200 cells that broke track records and thus law suit threats from Trinity, yup, that's me.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Steve

Oh how things change... 3300mah.

LOL.

Everyone was climbing over everyone to have the best voltage cells....

Even if your setup was out, you could still have bragging rights from your cell stickers after the race was over....
