    Battery Upgrade

    I was wandering what a good battery upgrade was for max c and mah rating on a lipo. I currently have a mmm2 with the 2200kv motor in my summit. Please help me.

    I doubt he is going to need more than the 410 amps the 8200's are capable of.

    Either will work though.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Kind of. They work in water, but over time water can damage the outside of the cells, possibly leading to failure. You can wrap them in shrink wrap, or a balloon though to make them water proof.

    What about the balancing tabs? And what battery would I get the best performance out of?

    Um, the lipos can work under water, it's just that the water can corroad things over time.

    Max amps way over priced WAY WAY overpriced.
    The stickers on the batts look really cool though.
    SPC ...great batts,reality based company.... great price.i have 2 sets of the 8200 I wouldn't recommend them if I didn't use them myself.

    Also, MaxPrice... er Amps severely over-rates their packs. In other words, they down-right lie about what the true C rating is.

    Due to how LiPo's are assembled, they are somewhat water resistant. The cells themselves are completely sealed... but water can get in between the cells within the pack and start to corrode the cell material.

    I have done absolutely nothing to further protect my LiPo's from water damage and have gone through countless 1-2" puddles and miles of wet grass. Now, if you were to submerge your packs I suggest doing something... either preventative measures to keep water out or something to dry the pack out afterwards.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
