Where is your clamp A-meter and volt meter?
A gas car can take as little as 100-200A to get the engine turning, and once turning amps drop significantly. You already showed headways cranking your honda, so I guess now we know the nano stuff is about as good as headways...
For a challenge, find a Diesel to start. 20:1 or higher compression.
Sorry for the rain, but my personal belief is that that hobby-king nano stuff is probably not all that much better than their usual better grade LiPo. Until we know otherwise people may be paying premium for just the nano sticker.
That we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours, and this we should do freely and generously.
These cells are 0.8mOhm each. I don't know how clueless you are, but is the resistance of 9x A123 M1 26650 cells in parallel if that means anything to you.
It's 1/3rd the resistance of the previous lipo I ever tested.
Hundreds of charge/discharge cycles at 10C, and the tester packs have only GROWN in capacity by a few percent. As in, a few hundred 10C/10C cycles is just breaking them in.
