In fact, being winter here, I usually quit driving before the battery is getting close to going empty, as I'm getting cold.

But I do have 2 car packs now, both stick pack shape, so they fit vintage cars that only accept 6 cell packs, one RC Plus 4000 mAh and one a Reedy Wolfpack 3000 mAh. Both gave the car they are used in a nice performance boost, adding around 5 km/h to the top speed, as well as better acceleration. The RC Plus pack is so balanced, I can afford not to balance charge it every cycle, saving quite some charging time. The Wolfpack came with a difference of 0.2 volts between the 2 cells, which took hours to equalize on the first charge. It's been better since, but it seems Reedy took less care to match the cells, or the pack needs a few more cycles to even out, or it's just exemplary, as this pack keeps having more voltage differences than the other one up till now.
Wow that post made me so drowsy.
