Anyway, looks like the batch we're working on will yield some nice numbers so please stay tuned and sorry to those who didn't grab it in time.

This is very impressive demand! I'm happy that the numbers are turning around. Than I wont get so many questions on why 1.17's arn't available. LOL

IR is internal resistance. And yes, 14 is good. The lower the number the better.

Quick lesson in electronics:

Voltage = Current * Resistance (this is Ohm's Law)

So if you have two batteries, both 1.170 volts, and one has an IR of 10 and one has an IR of 20, which is better and why?

Since voltage is the same, a lower IR means that the current has to be higher, which is, of course, what we want!

1.172 and 1.179 are pretty close. Besides, you really can't compare numbers from different matchers. I have some 1.160 Fuku's that out performed some 1.175's from a couple of other matchers I had. I'm sure you'll be happy with them.

And remember, all it takes is some bad solder joints or a crappy ESC to lose any sort of gain you'll get from that small of a jump in voltage in a pack.

So, be careful.
