Question Battery Size

What size LIPO battery's are being used with a scale crawler with headlights and a winch? And how long does the charge last on average?

Are you talking a separate lipo just for those accessories. No motor ?

anywhere from 2200mah 3s to 5000mah 3s, depending on my space available...usually the 2200 are good for a couple hours and the 5000 for 3 or more

Best answer is what fits .
I've run 850, 1200,2200,4300.
Bigger is heavier and longer. It's all a trade off .
I am assuming 3s also.

I got two Turnigy 3S 4000's and a 3600 for dirt cheap, both size will last a whole night of crawling. That's with 41 LED's and a 4ws servo, too. They also fit well in the front of my Wraith.
