    Max Amps= Max Hype?

    Check out this review of the Max Amps 2s race pack. You may be surprised.

    Yeah there's nothing wrong with the quality just the claims. After you realize the claims are false you then realize the price is a joke. I'll never buy a Max Amps pack. That's just this guy talking...

    I have no problems with thier quality. I agree that the max amps packs may have very high reliability but they are the only company i know that advertises the burst rating instead of the continous rating on their packs. But in the case of this test, they dont even operate at thier advertised burst rate. Im glad i went with the Gens Ace packs cause i love them so far. No complaints at all.

    they really shouldnt advertise it as true 150c... that makes it sound like a constant rating

    I'd just go and get a cheap Zippy Race pack from Hobbyking. ($2X) dollars for a normal Zippy and a little more for a Zippy Race which have higher out put. And they actually get what they claim.

    I know people with Zippy packs, Still going pretty well even after 300+ cycles.
