HAPPENING AT MAKE:
MaxAmps story started in a 2-car garage back in 2004. Founder Austin Else had decided to start using rechargeable AA NIMH cells soldered into a battery pack to use in his RC plane called a Zagi. It was built using clear speaker wire, oversized shrink wrap, and was far from the high-quality batteries that they offer today. After a conversation with a friend, Austin tried throwing one of these beauties on eBay to see if it would sell. He was shocked and amazed that the pack sold overnight and the MaxAmps dream was born.

- Badder Than Batteries: Make A SupercapacitorBadder Than Batteries: Make A SupercapacitorSupercapacitors are among the coolest of so-called passive electronic components. Because they are ultra-high-capacity capacitors, they can function as batteries capable of being very rapidly charged and briefly powering many electronic circuits and even small motors with bursts of power. And they’ll endure many more charge-discharge cycles than conventional rechargeable batteries. They’re great as backup power […]
