    Default Need Basic Battery Help:C to Amps?

    How does one translate or what is the equation to figure amperage on say for instance my 15c 800mah IMR AW cells? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    15c where c is capacity

    so 15 x 800mA = 12000mA = 12 Amperes

    now if the 15c is realistic or not is a different matter altogether

    Thanks for that. I have got these new 15c 800mah AW IMR 18350's and was just wondering.

    Looking at chart here, you will notice battery voltage drops to under 3 volt at that current with capacity of less than 600mAh
    So, 15C is for initial spike (few seconds) and not suitable for continuous drain.
