Default Very simple question about my batteries!

Hi,

Gp3300 6 cell packs.
Labels say:

B&T cells

All cells very similar.

Those seem to be reasonable numbers. They were cycled at 20 amps rather then the more common 30 so it is hard to compare them to what you would get from Pro-match, Surge or any of the other big matchers.

Once a pack has been used the numbers don't tend to mean much anymore, and these look like they have been used.

So basically it is hard to tell from numbers alone.

those numbers would be good at 30A

at 20A? not nearly as good... to give you an idea, 30A cells range from high 1.15's to low 1.18's for off the shelf cells

the only matcher i know of who uses 20A is integy, their packs go from i think 1.19 to 1.24

so a 1.17 at 20A is probably not a good cell, no
