RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Hi Austin, I am the guy who ordered the saddle, lipo pack from you for my 1/10 scale RC buggy. I have a feeling you should be selling many of these, considering that so many people own the XX-4 and now with the new BJ4WE. Looking forward to trying it out very soon!

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
We have added them to the website. I am glad that they worked out well for you.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Austin, how are the new saddle packs that you are testing coming along? I am very interested in possibly getting a new design, and especially one with arou 6000mah. Thanks =)

By the way, I ran the lipos last Saturday, and I won the A-main. People are starting to ask me about the batteries, the hobby shop owner knows about them too and I referred them to your website.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
We just built our first 5500mah saddle pack. It looks pretty sweet. I think it will work well for most setups. That is great news about the race!!

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
I have Kokam 2000 15C Lipo which cells are beginning to swell or
bloat. Is there anything I can do to stop this or reclaim the packs.
There is still 12.5 volts charge on packs and they seem to be ok
other than swelling or bloating

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
I am very pleased with the service I have received from Austin and MaxAmps. I recently made my first purchase with them and had a minor problem.
They quickly resolved the problem to my satisifaction and Max Amps will now be my sole supplier of Li-Po batteries.
Thanks Austin for the great service, product selection, quality and excellent prices!

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Austin i'm new to the whole Lipo thing but i was wondering how the MaxAmps Lipoly 4000mah 2S 7.4V are? I have a mamba max 7700 system in my HPI Sprint. I'm currently running 1900-2400 nicads and nimh batteries and there really not doing it for me. I've been told from many that Lipo is where i want to be and that the over all performance i'll see from them with my 7700 is going to be huge. Also what do i need to know about charging and discharging them? Thank you for your help. Joe

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
I just got some 7.4V 6000's for my TC4 w/Mamba 7700. Nice batts for sure. The 4000's are probably a lot lighter but figured these big-buck Lipos should have more current than the GP4300's they are replacing, so I got the 6A versions.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
The 4000s will work with the Mamba 7700 setup but they may get pretty hot. The 6000 would be a more conservative option.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Maxamps should offer a saddle pack in the pack options menu for Nimh cells , because that is what i need for my Grand Motorsports Drag car .

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!

Any plans to add more variety with your LIPO saddle packs.?

metzb1 12-09-2006 04:24 PM

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Hey Austin, I've had great luck with your GP and IB packs, but I'd like to try LiPo my RC10B4. It's running a Novak brushless 7.5 motor. Would the 6000HV 2S2P 7.4V Pack be a good fit for this combo? The ESC does not have a low voltage cutoff, so I assume I would need one. I have a Duratrax ICE charger that seems to do a good job with my airplane LiPo's. Anything else I need to be concerned about? BTW, the RCU homepage has a link to your site that shows this pack for $79, but it takes you to your site where the price is $89. Thought you might like to know.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!

Hi Austin

For some reason I cannot load your web site - I am an Aussie located in China.

What max size (mAh) saddle packs would fit (direct replacement) where a 2x 3 cell SubC saddle pack now fits in a 1/10 buggy?

I have the Hyperion Balancer and Lipo Charger so how do I charge a 2S2P pack? Do I set the mAh and voltage on the charger and plug the balance tap into my balancer and start charging as I do now for my 3S1P packs?

Thanks Jeff

JAM MaxAmps 01-26-2007 04:53 PM

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
joffacn, does this sound like what you are looking for??..................4400mAh 7.4 volt Saddle Pack........34mmx66mmx25mm on each side.....rated at 65 amps constant......85 amps at 10 second bursts........211 grams......6 cell saddle pack of sub C NiMH cells........comes with Apache/Hyperion taps.....For $79.99 an additional $15.99 will get you the 3 year 300 cycle limited warranty.
If you can't get the website to work call 888-654-4450.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Hi I have a xxx4 with a mamba max 7700 and I am selling it and getting a B44 how will the 5500 saddle packs work with the 7700? I also have a 6000 motor how will they work with it?


JAM MaxAmps 12-06-2007 05:39 PM

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
For both motors they will work fine.

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
Hi Jason,

To be sure your it will fit my car, I would like to know the dimensions (in mm)
of the 6000HV 2s2p pack with
- a) the built in skin?
- b) the detachable skin?

Thank you in advance for your reply,


JAM MaxAmps 01-24-2008 11:50 AM

RE: Welcome MaxAmps Support!
44mm X 137mm X 22mm
is the current pack size just add a 1/2mm or so all the way around it with either the heat shrunk skin or the slip on. And if your not required to use them then don't.
