Best LiPo Shorty Batteries on the Market

- August 22nd 2017

Note: All batteries mentioned below were charged between 5-8amps, depending on the charger used, and were allowed to cool down between runs and charging.

Started back into the RC car scene in 2015. On recommendations at our local track and reasonable pricing, I originally tried SMC shorty batteries. The SMCs lasted less than a year.

After reading a "Best Battery" award in an RC car magazine, I decided to get two MaxAmps Shorty batteries in 2015, one for my son in his 2WD buggy and one for myself in my 4WD buggy.

Upon initial receipt and charging, one of the batteries had a bad cell. Called MaxAmps and returned the battery, which was promptly replaced.

In 2016, I decided to try one more time with some new style SMC batteries to replace the SMCs that went bad. Again, the batteries lasted less than a year. Also, all SMCs puffed, some breaking the cases. It should be noted the SMCs were only used for practice, never heats or racing.

In 2016, I received a new GensAce 5000mAH shorty battery at a club raffle and was interested how well this battery would perform. While it has lasted for the past 10 months, it puffed severe enough to break the case. Again, this battery was used primarily for practice.

While the MaxAmps are easily twice the cost as the other brands, the batteries have been more than worth it. This year I had enough of the other brands and ordered several more MaxAmps shortys.

The MaxAmp shorty batteries have been our go-to batteries for all heats and mains for the past two years. At no time have the MaxAmps puffed. In fact, even the older MaxAmps batteries still have noticeably more punch than the other brands when new.

A pack you can count on

- September 19th 2015

MaxAmps has never disappointed me - this shorty pack is lightweight and truly 150C - a perfect match for my DEX201v2 competition buggy powered by an LRP Flow ESC and X12 8.5T motor - thrust you can trust, thanks to MaxAmps

My MaxAmps experience

- August 31st 2015

So I call to find out if the 150C rating is the real thing or now. The sales guy was new but did not try to bs me. He would go get the answer if he didn't know it. I appreciate that. They said their shorty 2S lipo would run my Losi Ten SCTE for an 8 minute race so I bought two. The SCTE has a 5200KV Tenshock motor and I don't baby it. Running at Tacoma RC indoor clay track. The batteries make that truck run like a scalded rabbit, less weight and tons of power. Surpasses the 8 minute run time too. Also running one in a B5M Lite, stock, after a five minute race, the battery still had 85% charge left.
Very happy, my next batteries will be MaxAmps for sure.
