|I don't usually write reviews for items, but I was so pleased with this battery pack, I wanted to make the extra effort to write something.
Used in: 2 slash 4x4's with stock electronics; for backyard bashing fun with my daughter. I was a bit worried with it being only 6.6v, as we've been using 8.4v NiMh packs, but the slash had no problems trucking around through and over things. I didn't do a speed comparison, but I thought it was close enough in speed to the 8.4v packs that I couldn't tell the difference. Was very pleased!
Lasted a good 30 minutes of mostly full throttle, so I definitely can't complain. Our 5000mah NiMh packs (not from MaxAmps) would only last maybe 15-20 minutes. First recharge added 5500mah according to the charger.
Weight: heavier than a comparable LiPo, but about the same or lighter for comparable NiMh. I wouldn't use these for racing, but great for bashing in my opinion.
Heat: closer to warm than hot after 30 minutes of running; much cooler than the NiMh packs which would be scorching hot after 15 minutes.|
