    wow, that's amazing
    I only have two 2s 2200mah 7.4v and one 3s 1400mah 11.1v. I run the 2s's most of time becouse the 3s usually hurt my diffs, but I love the extreme power it gives. Is awesome how fast can the merv go.
    I envy you! an healthy envy of course (I don't know if that is the phrase which is used in english but anyway, is not envy!)

    Close enough!
    I get carried away! I was doing testing and needed a few batteries. Plus unlimited run times!

    definitely you will have unlimited run times! one question: how long does it takes to charge your batteries. You may have a very good charger I guess

    Icharger of course! 30a 1000 Watts
    Not that I charge this high but some can handle over a 15amp charge and I can do 6 at a time but it gets a little crowded!
    Supplied with plenty of power!

    nice collection! you can never have too many. i've been looking for a new charger. i think with the kids getting thier own cars this week, i'm gonna need something that can charge more than one battery at a time. i checked out those ichargers and they seem reasonably priced considering what they do. what else would i need if i got one? balance board, power supply etc..?
    addicted much....

    Yep. Balance board and power supply then leads from the balance board (usually deans) to traxxas plug if you have traxxas connectors

    I can't find the part # I have it somewhere. Its a server power supply. Each is 47a and over 500 watts. I usually only need one!

    By my count you could hook them all up to 1 connector using just 24 parallel adapters. It would cost $168 though.

    How much run time should I get from spc 2500 2s & spc 1500 3s.
    The reason I ask is that for both batteries I am getting less than 5 mins of run time.
    I have stock motor with ezrun 60a esc.
    I mostly do on road speed runs but the lvc kicks in for the 3s in three to four mins and with 2s it kicks in about five mins.
    Both batteries are about a month old and have been run about five times each. When not in use the were kept on storage charge.
    My merv is a little heavy ..about 2 1/2 to 3 lbs
    My old 2s lipo gives me more time....

    Am I doing anything wrong ...

    I have a thunder 680

    Any help would be great

    My 2S and 3S mini SPC packs always gave much more run time than that.

    Question: Am I doing anything wrong ...
    Answer: I have a thunder 680
    Alt-248 on the number pad =

    A lot of batteries there 50. Someday I'll get up there with lipos perhaps maybe some 3s for both my Merv and emaxx just to play around.
    Ksb was right its the charger your using though you should get more runtime than that either way something is wrong with something on your setup. Icharger is lot better that's for sure I got some cash saving up for mine.
