Opinion needed on battery wiring???
I have been running my packs for my 700e this way since I got it and now I have new packs I am putting together and was wondering out of curiosity if this is bad for the packs because one battery wire is a bit longer then the other? This way works out best because it uses the shortest length of wire. If I put the packs wire to wire then I have to extend both wires and I dont like that. I am looking for real evidence that it is a problem or not. When I charge the packs they both take about the same mah back in, one takes slighty more because it is powering the bec and servos etc but not much at all maybe 100mah or less. Just wondering what others think about this setup.

With that Gage of wire, you are only adding 0.001588 per foot. So in reality, you are not changing much. You are good to go.Skids Up

What does this mean 0.001588 what per foot? My new packs are Gens Ace 5300 and they have 12 gage wire so how does that equate? Am I still good?

Here are my new Gens Ace packs with the same wiring. They fit way better then the turnigy packs I was using and are lighter.

For my Trex550 I have the Gens Ace 5500 25c packs and turnigy 5000 40-50c and the Gens Ace 25c packs kick turnigys butt so I am hoping that these new packs will kick butt in my 700 plus the weight savings, should be a rocket ship.

Turnigy 5000 40c = 836 grams
Gens Ace 5300 30c = 752 grams
weight savings = 84 grams x 2 packs = 168 grams or 5.925 oz.

Yes you are good. For every foot of 12 Gauge wire, you are adding 0.001588 resistance, which means you are robbing 0.038 Watts, which means nothing when you compare it with a 1200+ Watts the motor is drawing.

0.001588 ohms per foot. Ohm is the measure of resistance, and in this case resistance per foot.

You would need 630 feet of wire to have 1 ohm of resistance.

So yea, you're fine.
