No there was no reading for the voltage.

And yes i did try it on the PITBULL charger and the LRP Quadra and it didnt work, and i even tried slow chargers that takes 14 hours to charge but it was still the same.

You can't get any volt's on any cell with the volt meter set at 2 v ?
wow!!!

I would contact the matcher and ask them to look at the pack , see about getting another pack exchange .

Dubai somthing just don't sound right , I never seen all cells in a pack no volt at all.

charging your packs and how often you use them
I use a GFX charger. Charge at 6 amps with the peak detect set at 0.05. Before each cycle, I place the cells on an Integy 20 amp tray for about 10 minutes, let the cell rest for 5-10 minutes then charge. After each run or cycle I place the packs on an Equalizing tray and store them that way. I never cycle the same pack more than once a week.

I have never had any problems with any of my other packs using this method (Fuku, SMC and Orion). In fact, my Fuku and SMC packs seem to get stronger with every run.

The Power Push cells used to be popular at my local track. I had heard good things and bought 4 packs about 1.5 years ago. They all started out amazing but quickly started loosing power with each cycle after about the 5th-10th cycle. After that that they were garbage. From what I hear, many at my local track started experiencing the same thing and stopped buying them. Used to be everyone at my track had at least one Power Push pack in their arsenal. Currently, however, I haven't seen a Power Push pack at the track in a little over a year.

Secret-Weapon - I bet you have a bad solder joint. If one joint is bad, the pack is useless. Take your soldering iron and re-melt all the solder on each battery bar. That should do the trick.

Hey Tony...
Nice to see you're up and running!!! I'd just like to say I've been running Power Push Batteries since Tony first start matching batteries.... I've tried others, but I've always gone back!! Togather Tony has helped me win numerous races... I think our biggest feats have been the regionals in Chicago for 1/12 mod., Canadian Indoor Champs for 1/12 mod. and our last one, the 2004 1/12 ROAR stock nats!!!! Keep up the good work with the batteries and look for other trick items from Power Push!!!
Wayne

.05 peak detect is over 150 deg . I can tell you that it to high of a role over for the Gp 3300 on our GFX we use .01 and at the most .02, now with a .01 I set the lockout to on.

OVER 125 deg kills GP

I can second that.... Once the batteries get that hot during a charge cycle, there life span and match will be cut drastically!! Typically... 120 deg. far. is where it should peak at.

I must say before I started running for Team Associated/Reedy I ran Power Push batteries. The batteries were GREAT!!. Tony does a great job with the cells and I wish him the best of luck. Keep up the good work Tony.

Hi Tony

On behalf of a member that uses Team Powerpush cells these cells are incredible. Ive used Tony's packs for over 3 years now and i am never without power. i use these on the dirt most of the time and they work great(sometimes even to good depending on track conditions ). Whatever your doin Tony..Keep up the good work!!!

Koabich, Man stop cycling, your just wasting those Batterys!! Guys have to stop Bench Racing thats all I ever hear .... Well they dont cycle out on my Turbo???? WHOOPY Man lets see how they work on the Track, put them in and RUN!!!!
I run about every other week sometimes maybe 2 to 3 weeks apart, I never cycle my Power Push Cells, I leave them at the Voltage Tony told me too and pack them away till the next race, And they run just as hard as they did the first day!!!
