Would the Kinoko IMR or the MKE be a good battery for the X10vn as well?
I am sure this Q was asked on another thread and vinh said it would improve or should improve output(not to them words but along those lines)
So yes

I think you are pretty close... For cells in series, the current is the same through each cell but the voltage adds. For cells in parallel, the current from each cell adds together but voltage is the same. It may be helpful to think of the power delivered by the cells (volts times amps). Using your examples:
For 3 cells in series providing 6 amps, (3.7 volts)x(3 cells)x(6 amps)=(11.1 volts)x(6 amps)=66 Watts
For 3 cells in parallel providing 2 amps each or 6 amps total, (3.7 volts)x(2 amps)x(3 cells)=(3.7 volts)x(6 amps)=22 Watts
So you can see in the second scenario, you are providing less power to the driver. To supply the same amount of power using parallel cells, you would need each cell to provide 6 amps each or 18 amps total. (3.7 volts)x(6 amps)x(3 cells)=(3.7 volts)x(18 amps)=66 Watts
