Do the battery operated remot control cars use similar technology as the electric vehicles we drive?

    Batteries for remote control cars are usually rechargable nickel-cadmium battery packs, which are under 10 volts. Electric vehicles rely on lithium ion technology, which has a much greater power density – that means for a given battery weight, the battery can deliver more power. Batteries for cars are on the order of 200 volts.

    Electric vehicles that we drive are obviously much more complex machines than remote-controlled cars. The battery technology is much more sophisticated and relies on different materials. Aside from the basic idea of re-charging an onboard battery to provide energy to the car, electric vehicles on the road don’t really bear much resemblance to toy cars.
