Testing & Battery Comparison to CNHL & Others:
Here's what Joshua Bardwell wrote about this battery pack:
"The most obvious comparison is to the CNHL 1300 mAh, which costs about the same. In the continuous discharge, at 60 amps, the CNHL discharged 603 mAh before reaching the cutoff voltage; The RDQ discharged 729 mAh (more is better). In the pulsed discharge, the CNHL completed four pulses at 70 amps and one pulse at 80 amps; the RDQ completed four pulses at 80 amps and two pulses at 80 amps. The RDQ is also a few grams lighter.
CONCLUSION: RDQ BEATS CNHL
The Infinity Race-Spec is one of the only other 1300 packs I've tested. It's not even close. At 60 amps it only discharged 446 mAh. In the burst test, it completed three pulses at 70 amps and none at 80 amps. It's also $25. But it is about 10 grams lighter than the RDQ.
CONCLUSION: RDQ BEATS INFINITY

For those who don't like reading the attached file we'll sum it up. Bardwell tests for two primary discharge metrics - continuous and pulse. Essentially, if you constant discharge a pack how many amps will you get, same with pulse. The RDQ Series 1300 100C tested at 60a Constant and 80a Pulse (60/80). Here's how they compare to other batteries he's tested so far:
