Hmm, so if you put true in front of something it become undisputable.

I need to start using this in my business.

True auto body repairs at true discount prices. With true customer service, and we really give you the true best price in town.

Look at that, I just became a millionaire.

Simple explanation for that; the newer flame sticker design makes the pack lighter because we all know heat rises...

Wow man we all know a higher c rated battery should weigh a little more(from my experience anyway). Seriously the ignorance is astonishing, they need to change their logo to a big FYOU. I have always been a numbers kind of guy and I admit I had a maxamps pack like three years ago but I also quickly learned what a sham their numbers were. Now they seem to not care if their numbers are false. Just relying on the consumer to be ignorant and believe everything they read and are told, which is a sad way to live your life if you ask me. Trust no one unless they give you a reason to. I can see this ending badly for ma. Some noob will get injured by his 200mph velineon powered slash and will do the American thing and sue ma who won't have a leg to stand on as far as proof that there product meets the standards they are advertising.

Whatever they are only 100C. I am not even interested...


The Warnings & Cautions discussed in this manual cant cover all possible conditions/situations. It must be understood that common sense and caution are factors which cant be built into this product.

Yeah, they have to be at least 250c for me to buy em.


Also.

vs.

Apparently adding a hardcase takes a battery from "True 60c" to "True 100c" I'm tempted to buy these two packs, open them up, and compare the cells. Then send them angry E-Mails.

Well in their site it shows the "list price" (not sure where they got that one) as 129.99 for both packs. So the hardcase is just more "discounted".

It's probably one of these rebadged
http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-40c-50...-hardcase.html
Same exact size also.

I have 4 of the SkyLipo hard case 2s 5000mah 40C and they take 5200mah+ at 3.2 LVC everytime.


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

Wait what? You mean ma doesn't have some super secret exclusive factory that supplies only them with cells? Well B. Wilcox said they only buy the best of the best. He must be right, the best at keeping their profit margins ridiculously high like them for thinking people wouldn't notice the trickery.

They are still in business. They must be good at something. I think it is called advertising. And dim witted people seem to love them.
