I've been using a 800mah lipo for 15 minute mains. I think it gets about 20-30 minutes per charge with two hitec 7955 servos. I try to charge every three tanks so I've never run it down.

Some people are running larger lipos, but unless you have longer mains its just dead weight.

I ran a homemade 5 cell AA receiver pack in a hyper 7 for 2 years with no problems. I made them out of energyzer 2500 mah cells for about 10 bucks. I charged them at 1.25 amps and it took about 2 hours to fully charge them. I could easily get an hour and a half on the track using 2 digital servos.

Now I'm just using the 1600 mah racers edge receiver packs. With my ACE 1015 and 1313 servos I can make a 45 minute main without loosing power.

So, to answer your original question. Yes, the voltage is the same with AA vs. the smaller cells. (1.2 volts)

If you don't care about the weight, go with the AA because they will give you more run time with a cheaper price.
