Default battery

if i take 2 2s 5000 mah lipo batteries and connect them in parallel to make a higher mah battery, the voltage will still be 7.4v, i heard that the cell will increase. so will i have a 10000mah 4cell 7.4v lipo battery? will anything else increase? will this burn my 2s esc? is there anything else that effects the esc? or will this just not work?

Default RE: battery

Hi Carwen,

It will remain 7.4V, In addition,the higher MAHwill increase the runtime which can cause the electronics to get hotter. Proper watercooling should help but always be mindful of motor and ESC temps.
