      Max Voltage

      What would be the maximum DC/DCC power supply voltage for On30?
      I would like to use L-Ion battery power for my DCC. I could use 11.1volt
      battery, but I think that is a little low!? 14.8volt battery would be better,
      but I afraid the charged value would be too high.? NiCAD or NiMH could
      provide 12volts which would be great, but the size would be prohibitive.

      The motors in On30 equipment are 12 volt motors, same as HO. But I know that our DCC set up in the one club uses a 16 volt supply for the DCC booster, its an HO club.

       

      Honestly I think you would be ok with the 11.1 volt battery. Have you seen how fast them suckers run on 11 volts?
