Anyway to answer the question. I'm fairly certain my Duratrax shark packs aren't 1500mah as they certainly don't have the duration of the Ampmax 2 packs I have. The sharks punch like SCRs did when I raced off-road.
But solely for run time I'd go for any genuine Sanyo 1500 pack. The Sharks don't appear to perform any different if charged at 4 or 5 amps and the Ampmax seem to like 5 amps with a top up at 6.
As for run time I've timed all my packs on my discharger and to flatten down to 6 volts the Sanyo based Ampmax have a steadier discharge and usually last about 30 seconds longer to the 6 volt mark.
But they DON't seem to like a charge the night before top up at the track procedure like the sharks do.
