Mixing different mah packs in series safe?
Is it safe to mix different mah packs in series as long as you don't drain the lowest rated ones?

As long as you stay within the limits of the smaller pack, it is ok. Now you are at a disadvantage with the extra weight of the larger pack.Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

^^ as he said.

you will have to stay within the limits of both the max. current of the smaller pack, as well as the max. capacity of the smaller pack.

The LV cutoff of your ESC will not know, and you can easily fly past the safe limit for the smaller pack.

Calculate them both out, and see if it makes sense. You may find that it is easier on you to get a matching pack.

You can do it but get a matching pack and forget the hassle.
