There is a great feature on this site called the "SEARCH" function....it's just under the RC Helicopters logo. If you plug in your question there, you'll get your answer and other commonly asked questions regarding batteries, esc's, chargers, etc.....

the S stands for how the batteries, in a multi cell pack, are wired together.

2S means 2 cells wired together in Series

3S meand 3 cells wired together in Series

As George says, the "s" stands for the number of cells wired in series. A "p" letter after a number stands for the number of cells wired in parallel.

So 3s1p means three cells wired in series and there is only one cell (or group of cells)in parallel. Most often, if it is only "1p", it is left out of the designation, therefore 5s really means 5s1p but they drop the "p" because it is understood that there is only one of them.

3s2p means three in series and two in parallel.

6s3p is six in series and three in parallel.

The "s' designation is always given first, followed by the "p" designation.

Hope this helps.

Fling-wingers rule!!!

It is easier to describe something with pictures than words. Here's a good web page with pictures:

2S means 2 cells in series,and capacity is unchanged, volatage add up.

2p means 2 cells would be Parallel, and capacity add up, voltage unchanged

3S ,4S SIMILAR MEAN.
