View Full Version : Dual Lipos Parallel
05-07-2011, 05:02 PM
Hey guys, I've been running dual 2000mah Venoms for a few weeks. When I first got them they would last about 20 minutes in parallel and both batteries would be warm after a run. But now I'm only getting about 10 minutes and only 1 of the batteries will be warm after a run. I dont think its the parallel connector because if i run dual NIMH's they will both be warm after a run.

I think you had some bad batteries to begin with. You should get an hour or more on lipos in parallel. I get almost an hour and a half on parallel w/ 2 Hyperion Duo GX3 1600mah 40c 2s.

test one at a time to see if they are both working, also ensure you are not running the ESC on training mode, and even then you shouldnt get 20 minutes run time

I thought that when in training mode it consumes even less energy. At least thats what happens with mine. I get almost twice as long run time in training

It doesnt consume any less energy, it doesnt harness the voltage, your still using the battery, jus not to its potential.
