Hello Jimmy,


Where in the site is the answer! Anyway I was expecting as a reply an email!!

Neven mind, I'll send you a PM with the requested info

By seconds I ment characteristic of the pack you built ie 1.173V 420s IR23 etc.
So what is that number on each of the 3 levels?
The Power Cube would you reccomend it for serious racign with tight budget.

Hi Nick,

Still waiting for your PM .

Don't quite understand your question. So please let me try to explain again. hehe. Each cells is rated differently and numbers taken off the Turbomatchers. Any cells that does not met spec will be placed aside for other means of sales having nothing to do with R/C.

The power cube is a budget pack of 18 cells so ie 3x6cell packs. The numbers varied and because we've had some high demands on them lately, we've had to pull out some nice high 1.15s and 6s. They are all CET enhanced but not numbered simply because the time it takes to match them would be somewhere like 8 hours per cell, hence the lower prices because we know where they're at and what numbers they'll most likely matched at and we also random check each cube to make sure they are within the spec so to meet a closer match (semi-matched). This process takes less time and passes on the savings to the consumer who needs good competitive packs for practice and sometime racing at a budget price. By no mean are these targetted for national type races, but good enough for most to run at club levels and beyond. Another thing is the runtime on these averages between 385~420 but within spec whereas the race would only last approximately 305 seconds so there's plenty left. So I hope I've answered some of your question, please feel free to PM me or you can always email us at [email protected] . I'm sure Dan and I will reply back to you since we're mostly online for hours at a time.

Charging and discharging info can be found on our site under "Technical Info"

Hello Jimmy,


Thank you for the info.

My question about seconds is about runtime!!! (I couldn't find that word!

So you say that on the Power Cube the average runtime 385-420. What is the runtime on the other levels? Is it the same?

Gibbs Engineering in England make those cars that can go on land and water, priced at about $400,000 Australian ! so that would be about 10 bucks US.

Nick, the runtime on the regular packs starts from 400+ seconds. Some even have 430seconds. Mostly in-between 410-420 seconds.

BTW, did you check you PM?

Got this from a sponsored driver of a small battery matching company.

Supposedly EPIC has cut a deal with GP. GP will test (not match)
their cells and a certain top percentage will get the EPIC Monster shrink wrap. other than that they are the same batteries but these are the cream of the batch.

Gp has been doing this anyway as most top nicad manufacturers do. usually top cells are pulled for medical, aerospace, etc. where the best goes for critical items and ultimate reliability is needed. Rumor has it one of the big companies at the SNOWBIRDS had some of these top batteries pulled for their team.

his sponsor is very upset because he has to buy quite a few GP battery brick in order to get just one EPIC Monster battery brick. also his sponsor hasn't and won't be able to get him GP 1.18+ packs unless he gets the Epic Monster Cells.

One of the ASSOC/REEDY at a race a few months back had a 1.204 Reedy Zappers pack in the main. their batteries are matched using a LAVCO so numbers are different than the TURBO 30/35's

his battery matcher complained also that the batches of his latest GP shipments have been poor compared to what he was getting previously

JF whats your take on this

If you check out the SMC thread at Hobbytalk, Danny has stated that the Epic cells are not the top percentage of all cells, but the top of Trinity's alotment. Supposedly, everybody else' batterys are not affected by this. At least this is how it read, the issue seems kind of confusing.
