it just depends how you use it, the bigger the number the longer it lasts and that can help a lot in a race

Not real figures obviously but say your gear was drawing 30mah on a constant (no change in anything), then it would last a full hour more.

mah = milliamps per hour.

Add up the mah of each component on your car (servos, personal transponder, failsafe, etc). Now divide 700mah by that number to get the time the 700mah will last. Do the same with the 730mah and substract the 2 to get the difference

Don't forget about wieght

However, it probably doesn’t make to much difference between 700mah and 730mah AAA batts.

Huge weight gains can be made if you use AAA cells instead of the Sub C cells. I think you'll find it's about half the weight but the AAA's won't last as long (but for most it's usualy plenty). But if you have digital servos you will need to be a little more weary as they use a fair bit of power.

Definately. I wouldnt use anything other than 800mah AAA's. It's a bit more hassle but making up your own packs from GP800's will be far better than the 700 or 730 AAA's
