Here is a thought... can we really say that these cells are a "nominal" 1.2v?

How can a cell that averages 1.22v under a heavy (30A) load be called that?

These are probably closer to a 1.3 or 1.4v cell at 1C discharge.

What's to stop the manufacturers using the same technology to produce a "stock special" cell that could average 1.3v with 3000mAh?

Are these cells at the limit of the "spirit" of the rules?

Wow finally GP is getting closer to the IB cell.

Orion should claim the highest voltage GP cells on the market today and lowest IR GP cell on the market today.


IB cell have been in this range for awhile.

The numbers still don't directly compare, as if you look closely, they are at 30A and use a .85V cutoff as opposed to the .9v that most others use...

Is the average voltage taken over the entire discharge curve to cutoff? or is it only taken for a set amount of time (similar to the realtime matching that some companies use to se what the average voltage would be over 300sec...or a 5 minute run)

1.2v is the resting voltage of a discharged cell. It has nothing to do with average voltage.

There never 35A numbers, its says 30A on the sticker! The average is taken over the whole discharge curve so using a 0.85V cutoff will actually lower the average voltage. The numbers are still not comparable to most tho as orion dont use turbo matchers

I had already adjusted the typo in my post...

I'm not knocking the cells...I'm sure that they are fantastic cells....but some of the claims are a bit over the top...

Orion uses TM4s.

Is this a brand new cell or just an Orion maketing hype?

The later... GP have never released a different version of their GP3300 before the shorty cells, yet some people called the cells manufactured after august 2003 SP2. IT's unlikely it'll happen with the 3700, this is just a consequence of GP continuously improving their manufacturing process.

This is a improved version of the current 3700 cell. GP is responding to IB3800s with the improved version of the 3700 cell. I told everyone about this a few weeks ago in our thread.

Exactly. GP has always been the top of the ladder and will continue to stay there as long at they continually improve their product.

For some matchers, GP may not tbe the best choice because they do not have the voltage enhancement knowledge to compete with Team Orion. The fact is Team Orion's voltage enhanced GPs continue to the best cells on the market.

Our drivers tell us that when they win about every big race in the world. And our customers tell us that when they make GP cells the most popular matched cells in the world.
