The problem with the cutoffs is that the way they are produced and packaged leaves them covered with a lot of fine particulate and dust, hence the need for batch temperature. Most of the old nuggets from Spectrum and bird droppings from Cristalica were clean enough to not have to change temperature, if you were patent enough. It was generally a good rule to save the last little bit from each bag for the last charge, they were fairly dust free but not perfect. What both companies are delivering now is less than desirable from that perspective.
