Lipo IR,and discharge testing.pl8 and 308 IR comparisons.real world results
I have not seen a very comprehensive test on lipo packs in awhile nor chargers done back to back for meaningful data.The mah and C ratings as well as the price of some brands has really gotten alot higher with either tech or hype.We would like to make some bias test videos and put some quality info out for the most popular brands,expensive and budget brands.
It seems the FMA revolectrixs line and new line of duo ichargers are nicest and highly talked about among experienced users in the industry now,so we will use these in the charging and discharging and IR readings of the lipos we test.There is some debate on what charger gives the most reliable IR reading so we will use a IR meter to close the delta between the 2. So in the process we will learn more about these chargers accuracy as well as balancing speed at a given amperage.
We will be testing what we think is the most important, We are anonymously obtaining from the supplier 3 packs of the same brand,mah to eliminate most variables. We are testing IR on new packs at 69 deg.Using 3 different racers with one of each brand to run 50 cycles of 8 and 10 min runs with 4x4 short course,this being a very high amp drain demanding class for 2 cell lipos. We will have real world track testing, reports for lap times,punch power ect ect Then retesting for IR again to determine the pack that holds up the best to sustained long term use.I dont think i have to explain how important IR is to most of you interested in this type experiment in determining the best cells for the price.
We have 3 each of a few diff brands in the 2 cell 7000 to 8000 mah range to start with being delivered. We will move to lower mah 5000 to 6000 mah next if the project goes well.
Give us some feedback on what brands and info you would like to see in this experiment....
Data for project will be posted here...feedback from brands collected here as well
