    Question Mixed Lipos

    Can someone help me please i have a number of lipos different makes and different mah's. I am going to run my boat on 5s, 3s on one side 2s on the other. Do both lipos have to be the same make and the mah's the same or can i mix and match,eg could one be a Gens Ace 5000 mah 2s and the other a ******* 3s 3000 mah. Also which side do you put the 3s port or starboard.

    what about the C rating, does it matter if one is 35c and the other is 50c as long as the mah is the same?

    They have to be the same mah rating and C rating. This is to ensure they discharge equally so you don't over discharge one battery.

    They don't have to be same brand, but it is recommended since the rating criteria may differ between manufactures.
