i know it can handle 14.8v (2 7.4 packs in series) but not sure of any higher. a DC motor will just go faster and faster with more voltage you put to it, unlike AC motors.But i would not go any higher than 14.8v IMO

The voltage is actually 16.8V when the batteries are fully charged. Don't worry about the voltage. It can take it.

Throw a decent 4S lipo in that bad boy and it will start your lawn mower
