Default home"made" li-po battery

Hi all, half a year ago I purchased 6x3.7v 8000mAh li-po batteries and assembled 2(parallel)x3(series) and it worked out perfectly, but the other day I came to think about (C raiting) and thet batteries are on 1C everyone saw what I was wondering is if it has gone "up" since I put it together that way or is the pack still only 1C?

if anyone knows so thanks a lot for the info.

It's still only 1C, but you can pull more charge from it - C rating is calculated by the capacity of the pack multiplied by the C number.

1x 8000mAh battery with a 1C rating = (8000 * 1) * 1C = 8 amps safely
2x 8000mAh batteries with 1C rating = (8000 * 2) * 1C = 16 amps safely
