What Lipo battery is comparable to a 9.6v NiMh

Recommended Posts

Any 7.4v lipo will be comparable to 9.6v. A good 9.6v will have a lightly higher ROF and better trigger response, however the 7.4v in terms of output and wear and tear is fairly comparable. You should look for a pack that will be able to supply at least 30amps for a stock gun. To determine that, look at the packs C rating and MAH. Divide MAH by 1000 to get AH and multiply that by the C rating. For example.

 

1200mah 25c (1200/1000)*25=30amps

 

2000mah 45C (2000/1000)*45=90amps

 

I recommend that you go with the large MAH and C rating that you can physically fit in your gun. Obviously within reason budget wise. You don't need a 5000mah 65C battery.

Thanks for the reply, one more question, in a NiMh battery, 1600 mah is like "the standard" capacity but looking at lipo batteries, the mah is lower but costs the same as the 9.6v NiMh 1600 mah batteries. Do lipo battery mah's last longer per shot?

Mah is mah...it will not last longer all things being equal.

 

That is like asking if 87 Octane from Exxon Mobile is better than 87 Octane from BP.

 

Plus, they make 2600mah 2S lipo packs that are the same size as a 8.4V battery.
