Default HELP can i join two nimh 6volt humppack

is it okay to join two 1200nimh 6volt hump packs together for more reserve power ? just by joining the red to red and black to black.
and i want to install it on my savage x 4.6 it wont fry the servos will it ? cos if i do join them it still remains 6volt

You need to hook them in parallel......this way you will have 2400 mAh at 6.0 volts.

Yes, reds together and blacks together. If your using deans plugs you can buy premade adapters for this purpose. Here's a link. http://www.electrifly.com/powersyste...onnectors.html

Yes, red to red and black to black. You still only have 1200mAh though, just more cells.

[]TEX[] your wrong he is doubling his capacity by paralleling two 1200, he'll now have 2400 mAh but the voltage will still be 6 volts. If he hooked em' together in a series then he would have 12 volts but only 1200 mAh for capacity.

yeah ok thanks . its the same thing as car stereo 12 volt battery just say you want more capacity and you get 10 optima yellow tops , you just connect all the positive terminals then all the negative terminals .

so heres what i wanna do connect both reds both blacks then into one plug to connect back to the servo's and it will still be 6 volt but have more power capacity of 2400mah. exuse my dodgy drawing LOL.
