RC LIPO Batteries

RC LIPO Batteries are best suited for Brushless Electric Vehicles. but can be used with any ESC that has a low voltage cut off of 3v ( which is supported by the Brushless ESCs) . A LIPO battery provides significantly higher speeds and faster acceleration than NIMH Batteries. The most popular RC LIPO Batteries are 7.4v (2 cell), 11.1v ( 3 cell) and 14.8v (4 cell) The higher the voltage, the higher the speed. The RC LIPO Battery also varies in its MAH rating ( the higher the MAH rating, the more play time it will provide) and its C rating ( ability to provide bursts of current for acceleraton). The RC LIPO Battery you can use, depends on the ratings of the brushless ESC and Motor in your vehicle. For the brushless vehicles we sell, we recommend 7.4v LIPO ( up to 30C) although you can also use a 11.1v 20 -25C RC LIPO Battery as long as you are not driving on resistive surfaces, such as tall grass , if you have 45 Amp ESC. For 1/8 scale vehicles you can use a 11.1v RC LIPO battery ( up to 30C) and most can also use a 14.8v, 25C RC LIPO battery. As a RC LIPO Battery contains a lot of energy in a small package, it is good to review safety precautions readily available on the internet.
