Types of batteries for Traxxas Hoss

When choosing the best battery for your Traxxas Hoss RC car, you need to know what battery types it will run on.

Hoss’ battery tray measures 162mm x 47mm x 26mm, and the powertrain runs on 11.1v batteries. As long as the size and voltage do not exceed the limits, the battery will operate normally in Hoss.

There are two types of mainstream RC batteries – LiPo and NiMH. Lithium polymer batteries are the latest technology and offer the highest performance. They are also lighter and more compact than NiMH batteries, making them ideal for racing applications. Generally speaking, NiMH batteries cost less and are more suitable for beginners who are just entering the RC world.

But here, I would recommend two affordable lipo batteries for Traxxas Hoss that will give you a good run time and performance.

Which battery is best suited for your needs

80C 3S 5200mAh 11.1V Hardcase

Hoss’ powertrains can run 3s lipo batteries, 11.1v provides a high voltage platform, and a high discharge rate of 80c means they can supply huge currents to the motors and work efficiently.
5200mah has enough power for Traxxas Hoss. You can happily enjoy your RC car without worrying about running out of battery.
Plus, it’s a sturdy hard case battery that prevents battery damage from punctures.

As long as it is not over-discharged (less than 3.2v) and over-charged (over 4.2v), its lifespan can reach 2 years. This battery is very durable and performs well. Especially considering the price, it is my first choice and it beats most of the products on the market.
