Will I destroy my battery?


#1

Quick question that may or may not have a quick answer. Both are welcome.

If I use an under rated battery as far as the C rating is concerned, will I destroy my battery? Does running your battery constantly at or close to the recommended peak C rating do anything bad to the battery? Or does it simply limit the performance of your motors?

Short answer both.

You should be able to run close to the limit without any damage to the battery (assuming its a quality brand) but going over constantly (beyond the burst rating) will damage the battery faster over time.

Also not having enough C rating for a battery will not give your motors full performance as the battery cant release enough power fast enough.

Hope that helps :wink:
