MaxAmps Hits 10 Year Anniversary
Can you remember a time before LiPo batteries? It’s been a while now and MaxAmps has been a force in the LiPo battery industry since the very start. This year they are celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary and the entire BSRC Bash Crew would like to wish them a very happy anniversary. Austin, Clint, Josh, and the rest of the MaxAmps crew have dedicated their lives to high performance LiPo batteries, allowing bashers across the globe to go faster and jump further. Here is the official press release-
“The company began in Else’s 2 car garage, where he would build battery packs after coming home from work as a mortgage broker. Else’s wife, Shannon answered phone calls and shipped out packages from the living room during the day.
“Sometimes I would be building batteries till two or three in the morning and then going to work the next day as a mortgage broker,” Else said.
Else started out building NiMh and NiCd batteries for the RC Airplane market and moved into the RC Car market quickly. “We were the very first company to offer lithium polymer batteries for the RC Car market,” Else explained. “Lithium polymer batteries offered many benefits over the NiMh and NiCd cells, including higher energy density and higher voltage under load.”
Else said passion is what makes his company great. “My favorite thing is working in an industry that I am passionate about,” Else said. “Work never feels like work when you love what you do.”
It’s also not unusual to see a few RC vehicles, including cars, trucks and multi-rotors buzzing around at MaxAmps during business hours. “It is a very fun place to work as all the employees are also hobbyists themselves,” Else said.
The USA-based company will continue to assemble all of their battery packs in the USA in order to create the best quality batteries. “Building our packs here in the USA also allows us to custom build a battery that is the perfect solution for our customers’ specific needs,” Else said. Looking forward, MaxAmps will continue to focus on building the world’s best battery, offering the very best customer service in the industry, and creating a “raving” MaxAmps fan-base
“Our goal is to remain the number one source for high quality lithium batteries for both the UAV and RC market and continue to grow every year,” Else said.”
