Default battery question

can anyone tell me how the amp draw and what they call 1c or something drawing like 2000 mah out of a certain mah battery pack.

im not sure on how amp draw works and all that stuff.

im looking to convert my 1/8th buggy into electric but cant afford using lipo batteries and with this in mind people who have done this conversion say they can add a few more cells to make it even faster. how does this work?

the higher the mah means i can draw out more power? ill probably have to stick with nimh batts but they only go to 4200 mah how could i get more power?

Capacity x 1 =1C

So on a 3300 pack 1C would be 3.3 Amps....

Amp draw is alllll in the motor.Amps are pulled, not put out...

Adding cell does nothing towards how many "C's" you can pull from a pack.All adding cell does is increase the output voltage.Cells are rated for their max Discharge amperage (C's).

Cheak no name cells are safe around 9-10 C's....constant

A nice IB cell can do 12-15
