if i am running a Cont Current 50A brushless motor with a burst current of 70a am i going to get any gain in speed or power if i run a higher C rated battery, if the theoretical
cont current of this battery is 100Amps being how it's 25c 4000mAh battery so even thought it might not be 100% efficient i have a 30a window.
well,in my opinion you have already answered your own question. honestly I don't know if over your motors max burst rating does the higher amperage make any difference. somebody cleverer should answer us this fact (alltough the laws of phisics cannot be tricked :)
Using the same power system, hence a similar load, a higher C rated battery will hold a higher voltage than a lower C rating.
A higher voltage will equate to more power through higher motor rpm due to the nature of brushless motors (KV* rpm/volt)
I notice this on all of my lipos unless the power system is using less than 3C. (3c for this battery would be 12A)
Realy good battery. Have thoes in my RC8.2e, X-Factory X-6, E-Maxx and Xray T3.
Mine are 2 years old now and some of them preform good today too. I highly recomend this battery for every rc car driver!
I tried to charge this LIPO battery yesterday night using my ECO6 charger listed below.
I have put in the configuration 4.0a and 2C (7.4v) and when testing the battery, the charged gave me a warning that it is not the correct voltage. Am I doing something wrong?
I have not used that particular charger but would not suggest charging at more then 5amps to preserve the life of the pack I use the same batteries and allways charge at the rated c ratings maybe one higher and it never has any problems
