: : We all run Trinity matched cells in our XXs, and all the cells are labeled
: : with various stats on the performance of the cells. Which numbers are key
: : to their performance? Run time is obvious, but what else? Discharge
: : rate? Impedance? In essence, what makes a killer cell a killer cell?
: I'm assuming that you're racing off-road, where runtime is usually not a
: problem, so by killer pack you mean: "Getting raw power out of the pack
: fast, or punch".
: The average voltage rating is pretty important in terms of punch. If 2
: cells are discharged at the same rate, the one with a higher average
: voltage will give you more punch. The higher the load (discharge rate)
: for the same cells.
: Another spec to look at is the capacity vs. run time. Take the capacity,
: divide by the runtime (assuming constant discharge rate). This will
: give you the amount of energy the pack provides per second. The higher
: the rating the more punch you get.
: Hope this helps.
1.3-1.8 volts on 20 amp discharge?!?!? you only get 1.14-1.15 on a
good pack at 20amps. maybe you missed a "1" somewhere:)
