    Series and parralel?

    Whats the difference between the two? When I get my mini Revo I am going to run a 2s lipo but I dont know what the difference is between the two. Also Which one is better for temps and power?

    Thanks

    Its for when you run more then one battery, its how you connect them with a wireing harness. Wireing in series increase the voltage. So two 2s lipos would equal 1 4s lipo in voltage. If connected in parrallel it would still be the same voltage of 2s but have double the maH

    Lipo's on the mini's can only be run in parallel. 2s in series is 14.8v, over the limit of esc.
