The motor in your AEG is like a water mill, takes a specific amount of v and A to turn. Not enough water in the river means there isn't enough torque to move the wheel.

and read this if you're considering LiPo;
Damn you're right lol
Thanks for the correction hehe

To OP:
More mAh does not equate more power. Just more energy stored in the battery. The Power would be rated as a "C" unit (for "Current I guess?)

The higher the discharge rate, *combined* with a high mAh rating does equate to more Amps delivered at once:

A 20C battery with 2000mAh would be:
(2000/1000)*20 = 40 Amps (Constant, not peak)

A 30C battery at 5000mAh:
(5000/1000)*30 = 150 Amps

And so on
