Kinetix, Promatch, SMC, Trinity, Reedy, Fuku, they'll all perform well. The 'team' packs are 1.18+ cells that nearly no matcher is going to let out the door to an end consumer, but will save for the team. Maybe you can find a few out there, but, in the end, a 1.175 and a 1.181 pack are not going to make or break a race, especially at club or non-world level driving.

Tap a board and you can forget the extra money you must paid for that killer pack, you lost more 10ths because of that.

Personally, I'd get the best packs you can afford for your level of racing and treat them well.

I have Trinity GP 3300 Team Cells the numbers are 1.168 v @ 422 sec run time. I am not sponsored but had to search high and low for them.

These cells are exceptional, I would seriously recommend them.

i dont understand why most people are caught up in the numbers of batteries....i got the power cube from Fukuyama which is numbers from 1.145 to 1.160 and im one of the fastest guys at my track....i never noticed a difference in lap times with slightly higher voltage packs....ive even noticed more punch with my Fukuyama packs then over my higher voltage Promatch packs...id say save your money and get some average voltage packs from a reputable matching company and invest the rest of your money in practicing to make your lap times faster

Cells Total Energy (j): 14371
Discharge Rate (amp): 30
Ending Voltage: 0.70

I'm almost sure that is wrong, because most of people says that the gp3300SP from orion are 1.18~1.19.....

Definatly a mistake there, as my Orion Cells are 1.8+, for racer ones.

These are the packs im getting but the Seconds on them seem quite low compared to what i have seen. I seen a 434 sec with 1.82. There was only one of those packs but im determined to find packs close to that. GET THE ORIONS. Im sure if you tell pro match that you seen them for $10 cheaper they will sell them to you for that price

They are pretty low, but last in stock.

I have seen the packs you are talking about, 434ish RT with 1.18+ voltage, sadly, the only person I know that has them is Ari

What do you mean about the price?

That i can't tell you,how can you tell???????? But i also say that voltage is not that important,and you CANT tell the difference between 1.15 and 1.17 volt packs stay off the boards and you will make up more time than the best packs can deliver!! Just get the best # you can afford to make you fill better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
