Default A few beginner questions

I am purchasing a proboat recoil 17 as my first rc boat. A 20c 1300mah battery is included with the boat. I would like to get a second battery so that i can get more run time. Should i get another 20c 1300mah battery or should i go for a 20c 4000mah battery. Im not sure if that will be ok. I understand that mah is milli amp hour and that more will give greater run times. Also, can i get a 30c or 40c 4000mah battery? Im dont really understand the difference but i would assume that it would lead to extra performance. Thats all for now... thanks.

the 20c would be how powerful it is. the higher that number the faster it will go

the 1300mah is how long the boat will run. the higher the number the longer it will run. it really wont improve performance

As the guy above mentioned. I preferably would just go with another 20c 1300mah battery. If that's what is designed for the boat.

you could call horizon and talk to a tech , just to be sure , 20 c 3000 mah should be ok . the boat was designed to run with your current pack so you want to make sure you esc is up to the task most stock esc are not that great .
