Default 5200 2s lipo with 5000 4s lipo?

I have got 2 turnigy 30c hardcase 5200 lipo batteries

Can i link a turnigy hardcase 5000 4s lipo with one of my 2s lipos together safely to make 6s lipo 22.2v power?

Or will the difference of 200mah not work?

Mixxing brands is never recommended , but ultimately as long as any one cell doesn't go out of voltage range then is ok.

I have a new question on linking lipos,

I've edited my original post to ask this rather than using a new post,

Hope someone can help

If the C-ratings or similar I think I'd try it.   I would probably set my LVC to the highest possible setting, start with both batts fully (and similarly!) charged, and then compare the battery temps and cell end voltages after the run to make sure nothing funky* was going on.

(*That's a technical term)

"Funky" results are often the result of mis-combobulated widgets. This condition can usually be avoided by a counter-clockwise twist of the tounge while adding a smidgen of boost to the frackenheimer.

New answer. Mixxing capacities is never recommended , but ultimately as long as any one cell doesn't go out of voltage range then is ok.
