Default MAXAMPS BATTERY REVIEW

I have been running Maxamps packs for over a year now and have to say that they are hands down the best batteries available.
I currently run the 2s6000 pack in my Losi XXXT MF2 it fits perfectly in the battery tray and allows you to add weight where you need it due to the battery being lighter than the NiMH packs. This battery will also allow you to run at race pace for 20 min. with a Novak 6.5. Maxamps batteries put down the HOSEPOWER you will never go back to "regular" batteries. I also run the 2s5500 saddle pack in my Tamiya TRF501x. It has the same constant power as the other great packs from Maxamps. If you really want to put your batteries to the test try to power a 1/8th buggy for 20 min. I currently run a 4s6000 Maxamps battery in my Electric RC Product Designs Losi 8ight with AWESOME results. The electric 1/8th buggy will out accelerate and out last it's nitro counterparts due to the hi power MAXAMPS batteries.

I have to agree. I have been running only the 4000mAh packs in 1/10th 4wd (xxx4) with the mamba max 5700. The exra thing I like is the small lightweight packaging which seems to be holding up nicely.
It looks like this 1/8th electric buggy thing is catching on too. That might be a lot of fun.

Paying people to write positive reviews on other sites is sleazy. If I ran this site, I would drop them as an advertiser and ban their name from being used in topics. Encouraging your customers to spam the sites related to this hobby earns you guys a special place in hell.

Maxamps rocks! I'll take a large please. tee hee hee.

Yes, they did: "Go to the electric or battery section and write a little review about your MaxAmps pack and how much you like it".

I've got a Maxamps 8000 and I haven't had any problems with it, but I do have a problem with Maxamps refusing to tell anyone where they buy their cells. Until they cough up that info, I won't buy another pack from them...

Very good point about what cells they use. From what I've read, there are significant safety differences between different cell manufacturers. Also since they only make soft pack currently I will not use them anymore. There was a recent confirmation of one of their packs igniting in a race due to a problem that would not have effected a hard cased pack.

Wow. That is a shame. I come to sites like this to try and get the best impartial info I can. I know everyone has their favorites but jumping on an offer like this to get a free t-shirt shows how little someone values a site like this. It's all about them, no one else matters. I guess everyone has their price...I would be embarrassed if my price to cheapen such a great site like rctech was for an f'in free shirt.

Wow, whoever at Maxamps thought that idea out really should have a good kick in the ass for something that stupid. They should know that a mail like that would get publized.

Horrible marketing.

This is not a review, it's sub-contracted SPAM. Regain your self respect and delete your own post.
