I use 2 5400 mAh 50C, 60Wh 3s batteries, and this really rocks for me! A great feature of the Typhon 6s, is that it includes a sort of jumper cable so that you can use just 1 battery if you want. This tames the buggy somewhat, so for me, I was a little less likely to destroy it as I learned!

I started with 2 x 2S 7200mAh 70C but now run one gensacearespammers 4S 5200mAh 70C. I did this purely for charging reasons, with a duo charger I can charge 2 4S packs simultaneously in 30minutes instead of 4 2S packs.

For racing a typhoon, I assume you are club racing, not pro level. 🙃 so you wont need too level packs. A good 4s basher pack should work fine. don't run 6s. 2x2s can work, but charging can get crazy. Also, you will want 2 or three batteries, charge one, run one, and maybe one for rest. At main time, you will want an extra battery charged, incase you get the bump into a higher main.

For a charger, look at 2 channel chargers that can do 200w per channel. This will let you charger at 2c, 2 packs at once. 30 minutes and you have 2 fully charged 4s packs. 👍

I'm running a single 4s 5000mah 100C battery in my Kraton 6s. I suggest you try to find a 4s 5000mah or 5200mah battery with a C rating of at least 50. If possible, buy one with a higher C rating than 50 for improved performance.
