New guy here, I just bought a Kraton and I'm looking for advice on this battery:

14.8V 7500mAh 4S Cell 75C-150C HardCase LiPo Battery Pack w/ 8AWG Wire Discharge Leads (No Plug)

My questions are:

1) Will the battery fit? I'm pretty sure it does but just want to make sure.

2) How is the Vant brand? I read the posts on here and it seems like it's a good battery? It's cheaper than the major brands because they skip two middle men.

3) Exaclty what plug/connector will I need to hook up that battery to the Kraton and to one of the chargers (see below).

The reason why I want this battery is for the following reasons:

I'm just starting out so I don't need a 3s pack at this moment.

I want a single pack and not have to deal with connecting/charging two packs.

I want a 7500mah battery because it should last roughly 50% more than a 5000mah pack.
Plus if you do the math and buy 3 5000mah packs VS 2 of these 7500mah packs they should roughly give you the same amount of run time and cost exactly the same.

Also, which of the following 3 chargers should I purchase? I'd like to charge two batteries at a time as I will probably buy another 14.8 battery in the future.

Thank you for any advice.

Yes that battery will fit.In my opinion Vant batteries are great! They perform exactly as they should and Ive never had any issues while charging. I bought mine off Ebay and for an extra $% they will solder which ever connector you need. You are going to need XT90 connectors for the V2 Kraton. They are great connectors. I like them so much I got rid of my Deans on my Savage and replaced them with XT90s. I agree that single bricks are better and easier to strap in and secure. I'm not sure which charger is the 'best' but I would probably buy the Venom Pro Duo 80w. You are also going to need one of these to charge your batteries via the XT90 connector :

This forum is a gold mine and you are going to love the Kraton! It is an absolute beast! Welcome to the club!
