Default I couldnt believe my eyes 1.196 gp3300

i could not believe some of the batteries i saw at the hobby shop today gp3300 matched cells with 1.196, 1.194, and 1.201 on them. Has anyone seen cells like this? with 565 and 625 times on them too ? can i really believe the stickers on these cells ?

They must have been cycled at 20 amps.

What matcher were they from? Based on the run time numbers ... I doubt they are matched at 30amps...

those look like 20 amp numbers.. if those are 20 amp then those are actually average packs... runtime in the 500 second range is definatley 20 amps..

good 20 amp numbers should be 1.23+ for voltage, and 600+ for runtime...

good 30 amp numbers are 1.175-1.19 and 410-440 runtime..

35 amp numbers good seems to be 1.165 1.175+ and 360+ runtime..

Dont forget Reedy and some other manufactureres are giving specs for the batteries AVG for 5 minutes of running. not like the matching used to be done over the entire charge...

Orion does the same thing I I remeber correctly...

I personally wouldn't buy from matchers that match at 20amps. Matchers that do that are abviously trying to hide substandard packs since there is no real way to convert 20amp voltage numbers to 30 amp numbers.

my buddy who was with me just told me that the gu at the hobby shop said they were cyled 4 times at 30 amps and then matched at 20 amps.

i am pretty new to the hobby and was hoping these were a very good deal, but from the way you guys are talking i am thinking i am not gonna get a few packs

If I were you ... I would buy from pro-match, fukayama, fusion or any of the other advtertisers on rctech. Most will back up the numbers on the cells, they don't try and mess around with the numbers to confuse you. If you want certain numbers all you do is call them up and they give you the numbers you ask for.

I've heard good things about them.... I don't think you can go wrong with most of the RCTech advertisers.
