All of them are 2s 6000mAh MaxAmps packs based on the link he has.

Yeah. noticed that later..

The 6000 mAh packs are poor, that's a fact; the 4000's and 5000's are better.

I've puffed 2 maxamps 5000's after very little usage, and being very well cared for. One burst into flames ruining both cells, the other puffed one cell only, and did not vent. That's a nice $220 down the toilet ;).

Both of my 3s 5k packs puffed a cell within 10 cycles. Now one of them is a 2s 5k that I never use and the other one just sits in an Ammo can 'cause I'm too annoyed to "fix" my new pack.

All my packs are out of warranty and I don't pay for the extra warranty period.

Austin (MaxAmps) heard about my testing and contacted me indirectly and wants to talk to me about it. I'm told he wants to send me a new pack to test as long as I post the results. I'm waiting to hear back from him now. I'll let you know what I find out.

Not to discredit Maxamps, but I think it might be difficult to successfully complete a test like that, since the pack Austin would send you might not necessarly be representative of other packs using the same cells that he sells.

Yeah I was thinking that, like when you see some dodgy takeaway shop claiming to win an award for the best pie or something, they just make one good one to give to the judge...

Do you think he would black shrink wrap a fp pack? That would be funny...

Out of the two guys, Austin is much easier to deal with then Jason. I never had any issues with him. Most of the packs I sent beack were thru Austin.

If I made a product and sold it for like 2000% profit, I would have some amazing warranty too . On the serious side though, they are probably making a nice profit to offer good warranty.

Their warranty is not that good. Not enough to justify lying about their products...

OOOHHH, I used the "L" word!
