When fully charged, virtually ALL batteries have a voltage greater than their nominal value. The rules are trying to get away from the need for event supervisors to measure the voltage. Someday someone will invent a "smart pill" that will instantly instill common sense into their behavior. Until then, you'll just have to "bite the bullet". At one point in the distant past, buttons with a picture of a bullet and the caption "I Bit" were popular.their battery pack said 18 volts but read 19, the battery pack were not allowed in competition
That's just dangerous and irresponsible. Somebody could hurt himself doing that, not to mention the chemical fire hazards of overheating batteries of certain chemistries.The competitors should have shorted the battery until it was under 18 volts and then it would have been legal to use.
