Re: home"made" li-po battery
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
"As a result of all this hardship, dirt, thirst, and wombats, you would expect Australians to be a sour lot. Instead, they are genial, jolly, cheerful, and always willing to share a kind word with a stranger, unless they are an American." -- Douglas Adams
