Is it true that the latest batch of GP's have lower voltage? A local matcher says no 1.17's Any truth to this?

This was mentioned back about a week ago in the thread, it's true. This thread moves so fast it's hard to keep up.

hmmm... now that you've mentioned it, i did notice that the new GP's (new green shrink wraps) have higher IR's as compared the 2nd GEN GP's (old shrink wrap)...

could it be that GP is losing control of their maufacturing process?

also, i did read before in this thread, that they were getting less high volatge batts from the recent batch of cells... hence the rumors that trinity were cornering the good cells (whcih have been dispelled)

Lower voltage cells:

This may be true for matchers buying cells from Trinity. "T" is cycling ALL cells before distributing to oem matchers, keeping the best cells for themselves.

Matchers buying direct from GP are going to get the general mixed bag of cells.

Good luck racing this weekend guys. I'll be racing in the 2nd of 5 races for the Trinity carpet ORL series this Sunday in NJ. Keep up the good work and keep Fukuyama on the podium!

Does anyone have any sugestions or experience on charging fukuyama packs on a quasar pro charger. Currently I am charging my 6 cell packs at 6amps .06mv cutoff and 4 cell packs at 6amps .05mv cutoff. My 6 cell packs at a .05mv cutoff would only get 110 degrees so I bumped it up to .06mv and now they get to 125 degrees. Do ya think I should go .01mv more to get em up to maybe 130 degrees after peak trips. All of my current 4 cell packs are only 3000 so I was just gonna start with a .03mv cutoff and go up based on the final temp.

I have a quasar pro as well. I generally set for 5-7mV/cell for 6 cells and have gotten good results. I dont use that charger much though since I purchesed the CE GFX. Good luck!

John

On my yokomo bcs I charge at 6 amps with a .05 cutoff and my cells have no problem reaching 150 degrees. Yah try adjusting your cutoff.
