    New batts

    So one of my Xmaxx batts finally conked out. So I want to switch to good quality, fairly priced, high C rating, ec5 connector, highish mah batts. WOW, what a mouth full. I have tried HRB which are good batts, but I wouldn't mind something a little cheaper as long as it's of similar quality. Any help would be great!

    Go smc 120c 9800mha. ~120usd
    Not cheap but well worth the money.

    SMC are great batteries, if you can buy it in your country.

    Ight that's the same price as the HRB's but way higher milliamp and C rating so I think I'll cop those thanks, guys. Instead of the 9700s, I think I'll go with the 7800 ones because it is still high milliamp but should be lighter and there a little cheaper.

    Not trying to hijack but I just bought an X-Maxx and am looking too. I love SMC batteries and have them for my other RC's but they are wiped on the XMAXX batteries. Any other reputable brands?

    Yes they fit very snug. On their website look for traxxas battery guide. It list models with which batteries fit.

    I personally like SMC and Vant batteries. They run good, and are priced well.

    I just got my first XMaxx and decided to go with the 5500 mah 140c
    Happy with them so far. Only battery Iíve ever used but seem to work well. Came with xt90 leads so I converted the truck to XT90 as well.


    *Merged your two threads. Traxxas states you cannot mention certain brand batteries from the Far East nor their website. It is apparent you were trying to bypass the filter by making a second post with a way to bypass the filter. Please be nice to our host and refrain from mentioning them again. Thanks.
