What the hell?
Reminds me of a battery review that TheJANG from URC did a few years back, he did a battery discharge graph comparing a couple budget brand batteries against MaxAmps and had determined that MaxAmps was overstating their C Ratings, he felt that the price MaxAmps was charging was not a good value. Shortly after, MaxAmps had filed a cease and desist against URC, TheJANG's review was removed from YouTube and he was not allowed to reference MaxAmps anywhere on his website, he even banned anyone from using the name on anyone's post.... we soon started calling them "MaxCramps" instead...lol
