Surge Battery Matching

Good luck in your battery buying adventures. lol
Just wanted to know how that compares to a pack with everything the same but an internal resistance of IR13.

Is that IR 1.3

"13" is a internal resistance measurement. "2.4" is an actual internace resistance measurement. You can't compare a internal resistance measurement to actual internal resistance measurement.. Actual internal resistance is more accurate.

SURGE provides both measurements on their cell labels. "13" is a very low internal resistance rating, just as "2.4" is for actual internal resistance.

Hope this helps.

hello guys, thanks for yours opinions.
But why orion, trinity, reedy, etc...are more expensive than fukuyama, team1, kinetix, and others??
My qustion is, why the 'major factories' are more expensive than the smaller??

there is, It all depends How good they match them. If They all match them Real good and Really care about customers, Yes They will be almost exact.

the differences in performance between the different companies comes from the method for zapping the pack, and that's all.

Some companies zapp all the cells they receive, some others will match them once, zapp the best ones and re-match them, there are a lot of different ways to do that, and different types of zappings...

The rest (matching) is just the way to select the best cells from the weak ones, so as long as it's properly done, you'll know that if you buy the best numbers from one company, they'll just be the best they have, which should be about the same as the best from another serious company, as they all use the same rough material (GP cells coms from only one factory...).

So, find a good and cheap company and just buy the cells that suits your needs...

The zapping method utilized by a particular matcher makes the cells they produce perform differently from other matchers cells. Our HIPM system only minimally effects runtime and the voltage stays true MUCH longer then the batteries produced by conventional zapping methods that most other matchers utilize. This week we going to make Stage4 cells available to the general public - 1.175-1.179, runtime of 430+ seconds, IR or 2.4-2.6 matched at 5 amps/30 amp discharge .90 volt cutoff.. We give all the cell specs on the label. Hard to beat..

There is a difference..
