Lower capacity battery for Electron

Quick question to you guys;

Can I successfully power an Electron using a 1500mAh LiPo? I’m running a 2G (EU) that according to the datasheet can reach a draw of 1800mah, so I’m guessing this could be an issue?

I think you are mixing um capacity [mAh] and peak current [mA].

Oh, right… So a 1500mah battery would be able to handle the peak of 1.8A? Or is that depending on other battery specifics?

…damn I’m really lacking electronics knowledge. :confused:

A standard LiPo should be able to provide 1800mA peak current, but checking the specs never hurts :wink:
