Yes, if you're both talking the same kind of amps.

Peak vs continuous, also

Motor "phase amps" vs what's drawn from the battery.

Some vendors simplify inventory by software crippling cheaper units, unlocked are more expensive.

And some simplify inventory by making up specifications that will sell more units and posting that as various ads, but also selling the same thing as it's "real" numbers in other ads. ;)
