I see youre numbers there and if thats the case then that sucks. I have a pack that I have been running and I just cycled it.....new it was 615 6.89v and now its 609 7.02v after a month of running 3 to 4 times a weekend and I charged them at 12amps once and still they seem right where they should be. I normaly charge them at 6amps with 32mv peak on a GM Vis comander and discharge them to 5.4v and tray them every other cycle. If you have the cells in the green shrink wrap that is the same cell that is in the multi color wrap. Trinity has there own shrink wrap that is the rainbow color and Yokomo has there own and Powers has the R3300 wrap but its all the same cell on the inside....and if you cut off the first layer of the ranbow wrap its the green wrap. The cells that I have are in the green wrap.

From what I have seen and from what some trinity drivers say is that they seem to get faster the more you run them but......mod sedan foam will put a hurting on your cells no matter what they are.....at the first leg of the USTC the mod guys were able to dump with the 3300's in 5 minutes with 8 and 7 turns so only time will really tell how they last compaired to everything else.

There may be a bad cell...I am going to go through them and check.

I was aware of the various shrink styles....I was just refering to the fact that these were very early ones.

You are right about one thing for sure, we will see.

Anybody tried the Powers (or LRP) 3300? I heard they are quite similar in numbers to their 3000?

Powers 3300 and GP 3300 come out of the same factory......just that powers zapped their cells a bit more....although I can't tell the difference from the measurements!!

The GP loose cells being sold in HK now already show signs of being zapped coming out of the factory.

Hey DTM!!! So ur using both and u didn't find any differences? Just that a friend had a Powers 3300 pack (unmatched, unzapped) and he said the numbers were similar to Powers 3000. Got me thinking as to whether they were coming from the same factory any more...

I am using the GP3300......I have only "measured" the Powers 3300.....they are a little bit more expensive in HK compared to the GP. From I have seen, I will stick with GP, just from a price point of view.

However, I'm finding some real interesting figures from the GP 3000 cells. Haven't come to a complete conclusion yet.....still working on that.

Well, I FINALLY got a chance to use my packs of them(bought from ProMatch), & I couldn't be happier with them. I could tell even in my first practice run(with a practice motor, & this is in 1/12 scale 4 cell stock) that I had PLENTY of punch, & I was even surprising 6 cell TC drivers by my speed(especially considering that I was geared to run for 8 minutes plus). After practice I decided to try & run with just the practice motor(I have a better motor ready to use), & no one could even touch me, I was at least two full laps better in every race, & hardly slowed at all at the end of 8 minutes. Heck, the cells were hadly even getting warm, when charging or running. I think everyone was duly impressed, & I'd anticipate some more orders for GP3300's will be made....

Kevin K,

You mentioned in your post about how you charge your cells on your GM Vis Commander about a dropback ??Mv setting, what version of a Vis Commander do you have? What does the unit show when you first turn it on? I have a 3 year old unit and I don't think mine has that ability, its a great charger though. I should get it upgraded.

Thanks,
Steve

Default Gp3300

I just used my new GP 3300 and they are really good. They feel very similar to the Ultras but last for ever. Warpspeed batteries are now available and I have seen numbers in the 600+ runtime and 1.18+ voltage.

I think that those numbers are messed up, if they are at 20 amps then the voltage is really low, and if they are at 30 amps the run time is way too high.

Agreed. To give an idea of numbers at 30 amps, mine are more like 405 for run time, & average voltage is about 1.138(& these are only Team packs from ProMatch, their Factory Team cells are a bit better in voltage)....
