if i remember correctly.... when u "match" cells u r taking the numbers from the cell (the volts they hold i.e 1.175) and putting all cells with say 1.175 together.... byy doing this u get the most power out of ur packs becuz they have equal voltage.... i think thats what u wanted to no warlock...

As I understnad it, it goes farther than just voltage..
Everythin gabout teh battery is measured.. adn then they are all mathced...
This will give you a pack that will last longer, becasue you won't have one cell dump too soon.. etc.. etc...
So basically.. the batteries are "matched" so tehy give you the best performance, and longevity.

That doesn't mean that you get the best batteries in the pack.. it just means that all of them will be equall.

Typically what happens when you have cells that are not matched is one battery will 'dump' sooner than another one. This lowers the packs overall performance sooner. The best matched packs are very expensive cause all of the packs numbers are near identical and are high (voltage, maH, low resistance... etc.)

Depending on your racing level, a matched pack won't make a difference. I bought loose 3300 GP cells for my TC3. Their average voltage was about 1.17 for non-matched cells. So far they have performed great... and my driving ability doesn't warrant spending 4x what I paid for my loose cells. Nor do I have a CE35GFX charger to keep them at their matched level. So basically unless you either have money to burn, or feel that your skill level puts you in the situation where you need every last ounce of power, then just get loose cells or packs made from non matched cells.

Check out this guy for good pricing on cells: That is where I got my GP3300 cells from.

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

If you're not some crazy pro,
I would get these

I've read this before from other sites as well.
GP does "loose" matching on the cells before packaging. So cheap and so good. I have three side by side packs made with these.
