Default Uhh. you need glasses?!?

I noticed this on Fusions site and thought I might make mention of it. Might just be an error, but would hate to see anyone pay for 3700's only to get 3300's. Check out the small print to the right of the big "3700" And if you look at the barely visible label on the actual cell under the stick's shrink wrap this appears to be a 3300 pack labeled as a 3700. It seems the colors are off too. Arent the GP 3700's red and green and the 3300s green and orange? Can anyone explain?

heres where I got this . . . scroll down a bit when you get there . . .

The picture is just wrong. If you look at the labels, you'll see by runtime and mah that they're 3300s. I'm sure if you ordered them, you would get 3700 cells...

Maybe just to save the trouble of taking pictures of new cells.They just use old pictures.

As Hyperform Racing his mention.You will get 3700s if you ordered.

I had purchased the Championship 3-Pack a week ago, and they are 3700 in Green/Orange. These packs are awesome!!!

While we try to be correct with all of our product shots sometimes we just cant keep up with the art work. There are two verisons of 3700 cells in the US. Carrot tops and rainbows. We have had both. If you order 3700 you will get 3700. Currently we are shipping carrot tops in both 3300 and 3700. Sorry for any confusion.

They did a terrible job of photoshop. Just look at the quality of the saddle pack. They even drew their own black line to look like wire.

They're not a graphics design firm, they're selling batteries.

I think he was reffering to the 3700 STICK PACK, that obviously is constructed with 3300 cells.

Not making reference to the color, but to the two 3's followed by two zeros.

None of us here is a professional photographer. We do the best we can with the images we have. It seems we are nit picking some web art that really has nothing to do other than to show the configuration of what is being sold. Like I said earlier if you order 3700's that is what you get. We are not trying to hide or mislead anyone about any of our products. If there is ever a question about our products I can almost always answer it in a timely fashion.

My apologies John. Wasn't trying to bash your product. Just thought it could have slipped though QC.

Hmmm, I checked your links and I didn't see where you were giving anything away. Every thing on those links had a price tag also. So I guess your out to SELL us something too???

Please explain what your getting at? All I meant was that they are in business to "sell"(convince customers to buy) their products. B/C we have cleared the confusion on their website only helps out us on RCTECH.net. What will the guy that doesn't read on rcTech think when he sees 3300 cells listed as 3700? Appearance is everything in the world of retail. I'm not basing them at all, infact, we are doing them a favor in pointing out how this can be confusing to the customer.

peace
chad
