Battery Selection For Quadcopter

Hi there everyone. I have a 2205 2500 KV brush less motor for my quadcopter, that requires 12 V for operation. The batteries available are either 3S (11.1 V) or a 4S (14.8 V). Which battery should I use with this motor considering the above situation.

  • What brand of motor is it?  Motor specs usually don't say a specific voltage, rather the number of cells, like 3S or 4S. 

  • 3s is better like lipo 11.1v 1000mah, if the voltage is over requirement, the motor may damage.
