that's because AA and AAA has higher resistance and the 1.5V is under no load i think

1.1xx volt for sub C is under load, depends on the matchers, sometimes under 30amps sometimes under 20amps

Because they are not the same thing. The nominal voltage of NON rechargeable batteries (Alcaline, Saline etc...) is 1.5V and it's due to the technology they use. Same thing with the 1.2V of Ni-CD and Ni-mh or the 2V of lead batteries.

I think that Molson may have loaned some of there mini keg technology to Panosonic.

Just a side note.... I was talking with my matcher and he said the new GP's... you know the shorter ones that ROAR made them make..... dont have the voltage of the older cells... but he said the internal resistance is down also.. sort of a trade off... I will just have to see how they are on the track

Wink Battery prices are outragious!!!!



Anyone still around from when I started running RC???

12 years ago.....

I was 14
-Most people never even heard of the internet
-ALF was the best thing to watch on TV
-The RC10 stealth buggy was the "king of the hill"
-Computer radios??? most people didn't even have or know how to use computers
-RTR's where only being sold at toysR'us, and radio shack
-Top of the line sanyo where still 1200MAH
-Matched cells cost.........................

-----racer cells....$95-$110
-----Team cells.....$125-$145
-----World class cells $160-$180

I may actually be able to find some of our old mags and scan a few of the adds for proof!!!!

I've started 10 years ago...The SCRC and SCE were the hype, but the most expensive pack would have costed not more than $130...Top of the end chargers and ESC were $250-280 (was a way cheaper in the US)

Well....I think your a bit off line in your time table......

The 1700 SCE cells were out when I started racing 1988, which was 15 years ago.....not long after that, the 1400 SCR came out, around 1989 or 90...Cliff Lett used some Reedy 1400 SCRs to win a World title I believe in 1991. 1400 SCRs were easily the standard by 1990....SCE were phased out because they were way to delicate for use in RC, even the mod guys switched to SCR cells, except in 12th scale, where runtime was huge....SCE cells remained in use until the 1700 panasonics came along.

I believe the the Airtronics 3ps was released around 91, which was one of the first computerized RC Car radios.....Hitech released on in 90 and I think JR had one out sometime around that.

And I would LOVE to see where anyone paid $180 for a battery pack. Back then, you could buy the best cells for around $100 a pack from trinity or reedy. I was a spoiled brat back then and I had the best of everything....maybe its the inflated retail price you are thinking of, something nobody charged let alone something nobody paid. You could buy the very good matched packs from trinity or reedy for around $60, sometimes less. Smaller matchers offered good deals on cells, companies like Ballastic offered good cells for around $45 or so a pack.


And ALF was off TV in 1990...and it was hardly the best thing on TV....unless you liked watching reruns of a puppet alien making dumb jokes.

And I will gladly find some RC ads to prove what I am saying.

Later EddieO

Well EddieO you might be right for what you've seen in the US.

But let me tell you : in France you had to pay $120 for the lowest matched pack. And all the prices were much higher than in the US. You can multiply by 1.8 to 2.5 IMHO. Nowadays it's much fait, but still a FT TC3 costs around 400 which is more than $500...

And in France Alf arrived more or less in 90, so.......

i applaud my overseas rc'ers. if you have to pay those kind of prices and still take up the hobby cudos to you. however when ALF becomes the best thing on TV its time to move.

Well, that may be true on prices paid overseas..........but the person I was commenting to was from western maryland....

Why stuff costs so much over there is beyond me, contact me direct. I will sell you stuff at a discount rate.....the shipping can't be that bad.
