I have been secretly wanting one of the smart batteries just to see what all the hype is. So I may just have to grab a second one. But more than likely I'll just use the mismatched batteries in the Granite since it is only 3s.
The smart battery is pretty crazy. Has a microchip in them for data technology..

I will probably like it, but I ain't buying their damn charger. I finally got one I love after all these years and I ain't buyin another 😉

Who am I kidding. I need all the bells and whistles. I'll probably buy a charger too 🤬

Idk why I didn't think of this before, but you should have just cut out the middle man and went straight to Hobbywing and asked them what the LVC settings are supposed to cut out at on the Max6.
That makes a lot of sense. But like you I am confused by the 2.6v packs.

As for the C rating, I have never had a pack test true to it's advertised c rating. Some have been so far off I was mad enough to send them back.
The guy that made the lipo testing thread on Rc Groups had the same experience with Max Amps batteries, I would be flipping pissed as all hell to have spent $250 on a 6s lipo that turned out to be the worst performing 6s lipo battery on the planet, and he tested 2 of them!!

Yeah, I read through that post. That's crazy. I have used Max Amps batteries in my vapes before and never had any trouble with them. But I wouldn't buy them after reading that.

I didnt realize that Hobbywing was making the Spektrum stuff but looks like they are cuz its the same exact ESC. The HW manual at least gives some insight in to what the algorithm is trying to do for each setting. This is straight out of the MAX6 manual. Its lame cuz everytime I go from running some generic Zee or Hoovo brand lipos I need to set it on low but if I switch to soem higher quality SMC batts then I gotta bust out the programmer and switch the LVC to medium or high because they are much more capable lipos than the generics. smdh...

Thanks for the heads up on this Slick!

As for the MaxAmps packs, ppl been saying for years and years that MaxAmps aint worth the money you pay for em.

I posted a link to that rc groups thread on one of the Maxamps Facebook ads and asked them how it feels to be the biggest con artists in the rc community and they deleted it and blocked me from commenting on their posts 😂

I also remember not being able to say Maxamps on URC after they tried to burn Jang for showing how fake their c rates are.

And have you ever noticed how the world record speed runners never run Maxamps batteries? Most of them run Turnigy Graphene Panthers or SMC Racing packs.

I'm gonna buy a maxamps one of these days to test and compare to my other lipos but that is further down the road.

truth hurts...... if you (supposedly) have a quality product, you should be transparent with proof.....open to testing ....

There I go thinking again.....
