I'm curious, what application do you use a 40 cell pack for? It can't be RC related.

Default Well....

Some robots have ran 40 cell packs, and yes, they are remote control.

Steve - thanks. I didn't know they used that many cells.

Ray - I'll see what I can find out, but I don't know if there are any answers.

All I have basically heard is that they are square shaped, unlike a normal cylinder cell. They are not available here yet (obviously) but I heard they are in the UK.

Default Interesting

Are you talking about Sanyo or the Panasonic? The Panasonic is square, I have some.

Then what is this thread even doing in an Electric On-Road forum? Anyone have anything relevant to say about the 3600's in an Electric On-Road respect?
Do you really have to ask why this is posted here? If I knew that "electric" rc cars ran off of batteries then I would ask it here too........... And since most "electric on road" racers are looking for better batteries then they might have the inside info on it huh?

And if the question was ever answered then it would be EXTREMLY relevant in an "Electric On-Road respect".......

Steve,

I heard the pana's tested bad for RC-race applications.
What's your opinion on this one.

Also what charger would you say gets the most power out of the current cells (mostly GP lately) for rc carracing?

regards,
Pizza

Well the Panasonic cells are 5g heavier each. The numbers were 1.14's and 1.15's. One cell vented, but I was really pushing them at a 7 amp charge ect. With this and any other cell, who knows, Panasonic may sort them and give some vendors better cells than others. Mine did not have fancy shrink wrap on them, in fact they came with cardboard on them.

I think you need at least a 6 amp charge on GP cells. I would use CE equipment if I raced cars.

thanks
Steve

I remember seeing a little info about the 3600 Sanyo on the Groupner or GM site a couple of months ago, but i don't think there was anything other than just saying that it would exist. Can't remember there being much of a pic (if any ) either.

The 3500 Square cell is the Panasonic. From what i have seen on the net the avg coltage isn't really up to much. Also with it's shape i can't see it being used for racing.

Looked like a Sanyo 3300 cell. The numbers didn't look too bad though.
