MaxAmps.com Internal Plug Low-Resistance LiPo Packs



New from MaxAmps.com:

MaxAmps.com announces the new “internal plug” option for the Race Edition 6500 7.4v 150c and the 5450 7.4v 120c LiPo packs. These packs offer the best of both worlds. You get the lower resistance and higher performance of a single connection between the speed control and the battery along with the clean look of built in connectors.

Unlike the other bullet style connectors, there is no chance of reversing polarity since both the balancer and main plugs are keyed. They are specifically designed for vehicles with longer battery trays like the Traxxas Slash 4x4. The balancer tap is also built into the pack and offers a very clean look, both inside and outside of your vehicle.

These LiPo packs offer a true 150c/120c discharge rating and 5c charge rating. All MaxAmps.com packs are built to order today in Spokane, WA with your choice of plugs, colors, and balance taps. They come with grade-A cells and a lifetime warranty. Check them out now at www.MaxAmps.com

Do they also come with rubber plugs to keep dirt out of the unused hole when racing, or didn't you think of that? At the end of one heat you either have a balance plug flapping around under the body, or you have dirt plugging the balance port.

Of course Maxamps thought-a-that.. You think 150C can hover around aimlessly?? Huh? Well do ya??

Heck no. The sheer power involved within that superbly rated battery would zap any dirt particles that dared to find their way into the balance tap crevice. Now run! Flock ye minions to your nearest MaxCra- er.. MaxAmps retailer and blindly place your hard-earned $$ on any and every product they release. Hurry!!!

I would say it may be as much of an issue as it is with other packs that have a balance port, albeit, maxamps setup is bigger than the small balance ports other packs use. maybe a plus and a minus, plus, easier to get to and clean, minus, easier for dirt to accumulate. And maybe they do have a plug that goes there, but neglected to put it in the ad? would be a good item to have for sure.

that being said, It would be a big plus for them to put the information back on the website that states what exactly TrueC rating means since from what there representatives say, its a burst discharge rating.

For anyone wanting to know, for a more common C rating that people are used to, it has been said to take half there TrueC rating.

^^ dude.. nobody cares to know what the heck MaxCrap means by "true C". Any dummy who bothers to pay 3x the cost of identical lipos deserves to have to live with this product.

EVERYONE I know who has run MaxAmps packs feels silly when a race is over and my "ahem.. foreign" brand lipos perform better at a fraction of the cost. I get the same response every time.. "aw man! I got what the guy at the hobby store said to buy.. why are those packs so cheap??"

They aren't cheap.. MaxCrap simply charges far too much for an inferior, falsely-rated product.

Funny, the first thing usually asked or is stated incorrectly when people discuss Maxamps packs is the C Rating ...
