Question: Can you use NiMH batteries with a brushless motor?

Can a brushless motor run on NiMH batteries?

Normally not a problem. The 1/10 scale brushless Arrmas (and maybe 1/8 too?) come stock with them.

Do brushless motors require LiPo batteries?

1.Do brushless motors require LiPo batteries? No. Atleast, you don’t have to use LiPo batteries with your brushless motor, but the merits involved when using one far outweigh those of any other battery.

Can you use NiMH batteries instead of LiPo?

You can use NiMH batteries instead of LiPo batteries in RC cars. There are some differences between NiMH batteries and LiPo batteries. The major difference between NiMH and LiPo batteries is the chemical properties that allow them to charge.

What is the difference between LiPo and NiMH batteries?

The biggest difference between NiMH and LiPo batteries is the chemical properties that enable the charging of the batteries. NiMH (Nickel-metal hybrid) uses nickel-based technology and LiPo (Lithium Polymer) batteries use a lithium-ion technology.

Can you use a LiPo with a brushed motor?

Yes, you can use a lipo battery with a brushed motor. However, Lipo batteries are recommended for their great runtime and discharge rate when compared to NiMH or Electric flight packs. If you charge your lipo battery with a balance charger before flying then the brushes won’t be wearing down from your motor as quickly.

Does LiPo last longer than NiMH?

LiPo. LiPo battery packs are composed of flat 3.7-volt cells. … LiPo batteries also sustain a higher voltage for a greater duration of each run, so your model will have more “punch,” go faster, and run longer with a LiPo than it would with a comparable NiMH pack.

What is ESC for 3S LiPo?

Go with the MMP esc. Brushed or brushless, 6s capable, plenty of power. Mamba Monster 2 and new Sidewinder 8th will handle 3S LiPo, high power motors, run brushless and brushed, and are waterproof. So far I have not seen the Sidewinder 8th available standalone (without the motor).

Why do RC cars use LiPo batteries?

A LiPo battery is lighter than a NiMH of similar voltage and capacity, which helps your model feel more powerful. Also contributing to that “feeling of power” (often called “punch”) is the LiPo’s ability to maintain its voltage longer as the pack is depleted.

Can I use a 7.4 V battery instead of 7.2 V?

Of course, you can use a 7.4 volts battery instead of 7.2 volts on your RC car. However, it must be within the range of voltages the electronic speed control (ESC) of your car can handle. If 7.4 volts is not in the range of voltages and you use it, you could damage the motor and ESC beyond repair.

Are nickel cadmium and NiMH batteries interchangeable?

To some degree, Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) is interchangeable with Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) — with caveats. The issues related to replacing NiCd with NiMH are the charge methods, the discharge characteristics (specifically rate capability) and then the effect of both on cycle life.

Can I charge a NiMH battery with a LiPo charger?

Bear in mind that the voltage of an NIMH cell is 1.2 and LIPO is 3.6, so your LIPo cell will look like 3 cells to the charger, and will never top out, as a fully charged LIPo cell can be as high as 4.2v. Any ‘intelligence’ that your charger may have (time remaining or even an ‘I’m done’ indicator) will not function.

Do LiPo batteries make RC cars faster?

Changing the wheels, adjusting the gear ratio, and upgrading the motor and batteries are all great ways of making your RC car run faster. Will a Lipo battery make my RC car faster? Absolutely! Lipo batteries are fast, powerful, and oh-so-wonderful if you want to give your RC vehicle an extra kick.

Are LiPo batteries lighter than NiMH?

Size: Lithium cells are lighter and smaller than Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cells, however lithium cells only have an average of 1500mAh compared to the 2200 mAH average of NiMH cells.
