# Thread: mah = how much run time

1. ## mah = how much run time

i know that the mah on the battery is how much run time that you can get out of the battery.So dose any one know the scale. like 200mah = 1min or something like that. i am useing the stock brushless system. Dose any one know?

2. which truck? one batt or two?

parellel or series

Batts in series double the voltage:
2x 2s 20c 5000mah = 4s 20c 5000mah

Batts in parallel double the mah capacity:
2x 2s 20c 5000mah = 2s 20c 10,000mah.

40C when you are running 2 20's in parallel because each pack can handle a max of 20 and the current from each battery only flows in one battery.

20 in series because the electrons have to flow through both packs.

4. Slash 4wd one battery

Technically it's still 20c when running two 20c packs in parallel, you do get double the discharge amps but it would be 10,000mAh @ 20c

Capacity x C rating = continuous amps
20c 5000mAh = 100 amps
20c 10,000mAh = 200 amps

7. Thanks for the responses

8. I just purchased an 2S 8000 mAh Lipo - the thing is amazing. It gives me 55 minutes of drive time. I run it for 25 to 30 min, then I give it a break. When everyone runs inside or back to their table to charge their batteries, I just let my fans cool my motor and ESC - no charge is needed, because I can run another 25 to 30 minutes...

So worth the money - I payd \$72:

You will need to spend \$6 on a battery expansion for the Slash 4x4:

I hope this helps!
