Default RE: Different batteries for the F-27 Stryker

The Stryker comes with a 7 cell, but you can buy an 8 cell for it. From all I've read the 8 cell isn't worth the extra weight, heats things up more, and doesn't give you a real speed increase that you can notice. Most people stay away from the 8 for it. The weight to power ratio is almost a wash.

On the other hand, going with 1100ma batteries like those at batteryspace.com will give you more run time AND a power increase. Even though that are only 7 cell like the stock pack they can deliever more amps with less resistance to the motor if I understand things correctly. Either way, I know they give her more zip.
