NiCd And NiMh car Batteries
Trinity have been long recognised as one of the best battery matchers in the world. The current range of matched competition spec cells specialise on two brands of battery – East Power (EP) or Intellect Battery (IB) both with their 4600mah offerings.
They are available in two grades Team and Race. The Team spec cells are the very best Trinity can offer in terms of closeness of match, voltage, internal resistance and runtime. These are the same as the Team drivers get. The Race spec cells are almost the same except for a slightly lower spec on the voltages.
Each cell comes with its own unique data label and as well as the two specs they are available in either 4, 5 or 6 cell sets. Trinity also offer their full range of competition matched cells in pre-assembled and ready made packs including standard stick, side by side stick and saddle pack.
