When you buy an ESC the cells they are working with are shown in description, most of time. (i.e.: in the description says 2-4 cell lipo or lipo cells: 2-4 in this ESC) so if your battery is 2 cells or 3 cells or 4 cells then they are compatible. hope this helps!
This is an adequate ESC at a decent price, as long as you don't plan to use it at anywhere near the stated rating.
It gets hot and starts dropping current due to FETs overheating after a less than a minute at 18A. The sustained current seems to be app. 15A.
Depending on what you are trying to achieve, this could be a slightly better deal compared to a name-brand 18A ESC. But definitely not all that much of a bargain compared to e.g. Castle' ThunderBird series.
I use this with my Multiplex Minimag and a Turnigy TR 35-30C 1100kv outrunner. I have 4 servos on the plane, and one gyro. The BEC got very hot, so I had to add a UBEC in addition to this ESC. That worked just fine.
