There is something wrong with your measuring gear or the way you are doing it.

Its simply not possible to get those voltage readings that far into a run. Like I said, there is no way your packs can hold that kind of voltage under load for more than a millisecond or so.

If you were pulling 70 + amps for 2-3 minutes from 5000 mahr packs, that would run them down at least 50%. Resting voltage would be down to the 3.8 volt per cell range.

The numbers you show above work out to 4.17 volts per cell or essentially fully charged.

Something isnt adding up
