MaxAmps knows LiPo batteries. They have been in the game for a long time and are always at the forefront of pushing LiPo battery technology to the next level. Their newest release is this 2 cell 7.4 volt 8000mah monster.

The 150C Dual Core pack offers the highest performance of any lipo battery available in the world. Rather than using one 8000mah cell, we take two 4000mah 150C cells and put them together in parallel. By doing this, the power load is split between two cells(cores) instead of one. Each cell has the thickest and lowest resistance tabs available. Not only do you get two cores, but you get 4 tabs instead of 2. This creates a pack with the lowest possible resistance, the highest voltage under load, and the most rapid voltage recovery of any pack we have ever tested.

  • 50+mph in most brushless setups(7.4 volts)
  • True 150C rating
  • 48 minutes average run time(8000mah capacity)
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • 5C fast charge capable
  • 100% waterproof
  • Built today with factory fresh cells
  • Built with genuine 12awg Deans Ultra wire
  • We add the connectors and balancing taps for you
  • 137mm x 45mm x 33mm, 441g
