Help needed for large NiMh packs...
For use with very large motors, many battery packs are described as having 24, 30, or more cells... I need to know if these batteries are hooked up in series, i.e. 30 cells times 1.2 volts = 36.0 volts... OR are they 3 packs of 10 each for a total of 12.0 volts..., or some combination...??
I have noticed some of the medium size motors require 14 cells, could these be 2 ea 7 cell packs for a total of 8.4 Volts, but twice the amperage..??
I have never had a chance of a need to have a pack of over 8 cells (9.6 V), pretty simple stuff up to now...
I have looked the catalogs from one end to the other, and did not find the maximum voltage some of the larger brushless motors can take...I would be surprised if the large motors require 3040 volts...
I would like to someday make a 60 size aircraft ( warbird ) and wish to know a bit more about battery packs of this maginitude...
Thank you for your time and consideration..
I realize this is probably one of the most basic questions that could be asked,
but I have to start someplace...LOL
Thanks again....
