Default Need imediate help! Ordering batteries.

IM orderdering batteries for my revo conversion.

My question is, if I run 2, 2cell batterys with a 5000mah rating each, does that equal 10,000 mah combined to make them 4cell total?

If it does, than say a single 4 cell battery with a rating of 5,000mah will have half the runtime correct?

You can either run 2 2s 5000mAh packs in series or parallel (or individually of course)

Individually, you get the obvious - 2s 5000mAh
Run them in series, you get 4s (14.8V) 5000mAh
Run them in parallel, you get 2s (7.4V) 10,000mAh

so with that being said, all thing equal 2 2s packs ran together is the same capacity etc as a single 4s if they have the same MAH rating?

If this is a erevo then 2 2s 5000mah would be 4s 500mah. The erevo uses them in seires which makes 2 2s into 4s. If it was in parallel then 2 2s 5000mah would be 2s 10,000mah. Parallel= double run time seires=double voltage.

Im running them in a revo I converted to brushless. Both setups need to equal 4s.

so to be clear

X2 2cell 5000MAH packs is = to 1 4S 5000MAH pack
