    mini e revo 1/16 limos

    Hey guys. I want to replace my kids batteries to lipos. Is there any specific brand I should be looking at. I know nothing about this stuff. But I do have a charger already.

    Thanks in advance, Dave

    If you could post a link to batteries that would be great also. Cause I would just be looking at amazon.

    2s or 3s? I would def recommend SMC, they have great batteries. Here is a link for them: SMC Lipos

    They ship pretty fast too.

    I have 2 of their 2s, on a vxl mini summit, and 1 will last about 20-25 min depending on my driving style that day. With a brushed, it won't last as long, and I would recommend going to brushless if you have the $$$

    I have my 2000mha 20c 2s venom for my brushed merv. Was pretty cheap at my lhs. Think 20ish. Seems to work fine. I have two. One charges about as fast as it takes to drain one.

    I found some on Amazon that ship in Canada. Dlg 2200mah. They’re only $29 so I figure I’ll try 3 of them out. At least my kid will be able to play with his car. And if they suck it’s Amazon so I could return them.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Just got the batteries today. Charged them up and wow. LiPo's are way better than NiMh. way faster and lasts so much longer
