What does 30C on a LiPo battery mean?
For example, a 2200 mAh lipo pack with a 30C rating is supposed to be able to support 2200mAh (or 2.2Ah) X 30 load which is 66 amps. Note, running at 30C means that the battery will not last for long! Capacity is rated in mAh or Ah and the “h” part means “hour”.
How fast is a 3S LiPo?
So if you have a brushless motor with a rating of 3,500kV, that motor will spin 3,500 RPM for every volt you apply to it. On a 2S LiPo battery, that motor will spin around 25,900 RPM. On a 3S, it will spin a whopping 38,850 RPM. So the more voltage you have, the faster you’re going to go.
What does a 3S LiPo charge to?
Discharged – the voltage of a discharged LiPo cell is 3.00V, and discharging below this will definitely damage the cell. Because the battery shown has a 3S arrangement, it is marked with its nominal voltage of 11.1V (3.70V*3 cells). A fully charged 3S pack is 12.60V and a fully discharged 3S pack is 9.00V.
What’s the difference between 20C and 30c LiPo?
Whats the difference between a 20c and a 30c battery? How does this effect my motor? The higher the C rating, the higher the cells are capable of discharging. For example, a 20C 2100 mah lipo can discharge at 42 amps (cell count does not matter), and a 30c 2100 mah can discharge at 63 amps.
What is C in LiPo battery?
The C rating for a LiPo battery, quite simply, refers to the capacity of energy the battery can safely discharge, represented as a multiple of its overall capacity. A battery that has a higher C rating delivers more energy, and that means higher performance.
How long does it take to charge a 3S 5000mah LiPo?
At 1C (5 amps) that would take 30 minutes +. Due to inefficiencies and the fact that chargers taper off, it might be more like 40-50 minutes. Even longer if the battery arrived less than half charged.
What’s the highest C rating LiPo?
1-What is high rate LiPo battery. They can discharge continuously with 3C,5C, 10C, 15C, 20C, 25C, 30C, 35C, 40C, 50C, 60C,75C and 85C while normal ones can only discharge continuously with 1C maximum.
What does C mean on a battery?
The battery C Rating is the measurement of current in which a battery is charged and discharged at. The capacity of a battery is generally rated and labelled at the 1C Rate (1C current), this means a fully charged battery with a capacity of 10Ah should be able to provide 10 Amps for one hour.
Can I leave a fully charged LiPo overnight?
Never leave your LiPo batteries sitting around on a full charge for more than 2-3 days. If by the 3rd day you realize you are not going to use your battery today, you need to discharge your battery down to 3.6v-3.8v per cell for safe storage until you are ready to use the battery again.
Is a lower C rating better?
In fact the higher the C rating, the better off your entire system will be. Here is a quick review of how we use the C rating to calculate the maximum continuous discharge current the battery can output.
