    Cool What Batteries Do You Got?

    Just a fun tread... What batteries do you got for your Summit?
    I'll start:

    LiPo
    2x SPC 2s 25c 5000mAh

    NiMH
    2x Traxxas 8.4v 3000mAh

    As you can see, I don't got many batts, and I don't use the NiMH's anymore. Know, let's see your batteries!

    Nice to see what everyone is using. How about run time? Would be interesting to see ballpark of 5000mAh vs. 6000mAh vs. 9200mAh.

    8 china 6000 2cell packs,
    8 traxxas 7600 2 cell packs.

    LOVE THE FIT AND FINISH of the traxxas packs, full warranty for one year, and 50% off lifetime warranty, totally worth the few extra bucks in my books.

    4 Dynamite 5100 speedpacks here, with a Passport ultra charger... Gets me an hours
    easy running, which is about all I do anyway.... I have a ? though, when a battery is
    rated at say 5000 mah, what exactly does that mean ?? Is that the total power that
    the battery will hold from stone dead, or is it from some arbitrary point in the batteries
    charge level ?? IE, if U don't know exactly how much is in the battery to start with,
    how do U know how much the battery has in it since all U know for sure is how much
    U just put in, but U don't know exactly how much it had in it to start with, unless it was
    stone dead of course ?? Is this as clear as mud ?? hehe

    for lipo and nimh its the same thing mah is capacity=run time. sept on lipo you take the mah and times it by the c rateing and you get the total amps(not sure of the next step) but then you take the amps an divied it by 60 or somthing. to equal how much amps the battery can dish out for a period of time

    w3nzl does you passport tell you the voltage and stuff when its done or is it a led light that tells you when its done?

    Guess I didn't make myself clear on what I was wanting to know, an I'm not sure I can, so we'll just forget it...

    reod12x2, The passport, gives U the charging voltage, charging current, mah input to the battery, and the
    elapsed time of the charge continously... Other parameters can be had at anytime, system temp, battery
    temp, etc by turning the jog dial... The only LED is a red-green combo light thats green when the system is
    charging, red when discharging a battery, goes off when charging-discharging stops... FULL blinks on the LCD
    when finished charging.. The finished voltage, mah input, an elapsed time of charge R also given...

    There are many ways towaterproof them. Search on YouTube for "How to waterproof a LiPo" Some will void the warranty, some won't.

    I'm new to the RC thing but Santa got my 7 year old son a summit and we have had a blast rallying it around... Anyway we have the stock batteries and want to upgrade to make the most of it without upgrading the motor, etc... If you were going to buy one set of batteries what should I get? Bang for buck?

    2S 8000 x 28C = 224,000 divide 1000 = 224 amps
    3S 5200 x 40C = 208,000 divide 1000 = 208 amps
    2S 4700 x 25C = 117,500 divide 1000 = 117.5 amps

    Fit perfectly, they are bit "low" and the "New-********-2s-7600-40-80c" should even fit better (and have more punch)

    Just han my run with 2 x ******* ********** 6000mah 2S 25~50C Lipo Pack. Wow! They really deliver! They are just a bit "flat" but else it's a perfect fit.

    I was looking for the "******* ********** 7600mah 2S 40~80C Lipo Pack" but they or on back order now.

    I still don't understand why the claim that the "******* ********** 12800mah 2S 40~80C Lipo Pack" will fit the summit. They don't at Dimensions: 154 x 42 x 45mm
