Hi All,

As always John is spot on, if you look at how long it takes for a cell to go from 1.0v to 0.9v you would see that this is not a use ful part of the cells discharge curve. Generally it takes about 5 to maybe 10 seconds, and usually that long if there is a problem with the cell. Cutting off at .95 (or maybe 1v) seems to give a much tighter match.


There is a lot of chargers out there that can very accurately measure less than 0.05v. Yes ambient conditions do make a difference but if mathcers play with these variables to get better #'s then they are not reputable companies and should deal with them anyway. The .001'th of a volt come sfrom measuring a lot of data which has 2 decimal places and then averaging. It is no problem to measure these differences however I think the big question is can we feel the difference on the track? The answer to that depends on how good of a driver we are.

To come back around to the point of the thread - Yes fusion has excellent customer service and the quality of the product is top notch.

Smile I agree - Great Company

The internet is a powerful tool, and I spent a great deal of time looking into some battery matchers to upgrade some packs. One of my friends bought some of there 1.19's so I had a chance to look at the quality of the product; VERY NICE. What impressed me the most was there battery care section. I killed my un-matched packs by dead shorting them-DO NOT DO THIS. It did increase there punch, but took away considerably from there runtime to about 4min. Less than what is needed for a 5min heat. Hence my upgrade, but they were unmatched, so I didn't care all that much. At $63 a pack, with patented soldering processing, what a deal :-)

well hot damn! i have had the chance of runing the fusions for a good day ( 2 hours racing and 8 messing around) and i have to say that fusions are some of the best batt's i have used too date. now about 5 years ago i was really into rc cars TC to be exact and bought just about every name you can think of most of them didnt like a full day of racing and playing so i would have to have a LOT of packs on the ready but not with fusion, what is on the sticker is exactly what ya get and boy do they run nice. i dont think i have ever been so happy/pleased/content with a company ( in any field) as i am with fusion. i have learnd a fair bit about batts from this thread alone and am very pleased with my overall exp...now all i need to do is save up some more cash to buy more packs and get into some "real" raceing. who knows i just might meet some of the members here. Now, if i can only learn how to set up my m11 radio. lololol
