What the different mAh's do to a car

    I was wondering what the different mAh's do to a car. Does it mean more power, more run time, and could I get some examples of what each type of battery does?

    i.e. 1500 mAh- more run time, etc.

    Run time. 3300 is best over 3600 tho. But mAH is the run times

    just think about it as gas in a gas tank the more gas you have the longer it runs...(more mAh the run time is longer)

    Ehh, i wouldnt say that. Cause 3300mAh on a 27T stock in a TC3 isnt going to have the same run time as a 3300mAh on a 10T Mod in a TC3. However yes, the more mAh, the longer the run time.

    mah milliampere hours. like a smaller version of how they used to rate automobile batteries in ampere hours before they decided to use a cold crank number. Like a gas tank a higher number mah will give a longer run time on a given motor. say 1000 mah means 100 ma for 10 hours. If you know the current draw on a motor you can estimate how long it will run from the mah number. Allow some current draw to operate control circuits.
