What batteries do manufacturers (and modders) use in 1:64 cars?
I'm new to the RC space, but I'm designing a tiny vehicle (1:64) for which I need a correspondingly tiny battery.
If you have a ZipZap or a Team Losi Micro T or anything similar, I'd love to know what battery comes with the car. (To be clear: I mean what battery comes in the car, not in the charger.)
Extra credit if you can tell me how much current the charger pumps into the battery...
Thanks in advance...

Usually come with 1 or 2 NiMH 1.2v cells around 30-50mAh.
When I've modified small cars I've usually put a 130mAh to 240mAh LiPo depending on space.
The Micro T is a completely different scale (1:32?) to the 1:64 cars and can take much larger LiPo cells.
The sizes I mentioned for LiPos are probably overkill though, you can use a 70mAh cell for such small cars and it lasts for a good amount of time.

single cell lipo can not take any more than 4.2v and depending on mah will depend on how much you can charge it @ . example 70 mah 1 cell lipo 4.2v @ .7mah max charge
if you try and fast charge is will ruin / catch fire your lipo . and should never be discharged below 3.0v .
