That is one of the most interesting graphs I've seen here in some time. I'm sure there will still be some who insist there has never been a definitive comparison with chinese lipos.

It would be even more interesting if prices were posted.

It comes up as an image for me... with battery brands in English????

It would be interesting to see a graph from 40C discharges.

samuelx,
Did you happen to record the temperature of the packs right after discharge?
Thanks for the data.

Very funny indeed -

Specially since there were 6 batteries in his post and 7 entries in your list.

Hoppy, you MUST stop with these amusing but unhelpful posts.

samuelx, sorry if I missed it, but was this a one off test, or do you intend to keep cycling these packs? It would be interesting to see how they match up at the 50 and 100 cycle mark. Thanks for posting the graph, very nice info!

Eric

I have no robot to do it and 50 or 100 cycles take long time to do when sitting on garage. I will make more cycles but 100 might be too much to do manually.

I was thrown off by your statement "no partcular order".

With OPs prices and graph rating:

Turnigy 2200max 35/40C (17,85$) $27, best
Hyperion VX G3 2200mah (51,95$) $52, good
(F)Lightmax 40C 2200mah (21,39$) $33, fair
Polyquest XF 2200max (64,99$) ?, worst

Rhino 40C 1850max (26,99$) $23, best
(F)Lightmax 40C 1800max (16,65$) $21, good

Maybe some will realize now you don't always get what you pay for.

Polyquest stay quite cool on 75A discharge, but voltage is litle less compare to hyperion or turnigy. You can get more power on polyquest, if take more amps.
My discharge system cant take more amps out. 75 A is max.

If you really need 35C continues Discharge rate, buy Polyquest it will last longest because it runs cooler on 2200mah on 75 A temp rise to 55celsius.

2200 mah Hyperion Vx and 2200mah Turnigy both warm up to 80 celsius on 75A. It means that they are ruined in couple of cycles.
