OK, I give up. Where is this LiPoCalc???
 
A time consuming search only turns up one dead link. Does it really exist?

Yes it does:

Curious, are you looking to fly your Corona on LiPo yet? :)

Buck,

Thanks, but that link is deader than a doornail in Denver. :(

No, the Corona is um... semi-retired. But I may try to slap it together to do some testing.

Worked for me, just now?

Later,

All I get is "document done", and a blank screen.

I still get it fine...what browser you guys using? I can get it with either IE or Netscrape

Hmm,
David

C?
 
What does the Field in lower right after volts 3.7 indicate?(Cells, charge rate?).
And I'm having a hell fo a time picturing 2s3p configurtations. Any links to pictures of different configuarations realted to the nomenclature xSxP? Hooking two two cells packs at 7.4 volts each, and hooking em up parralel, I can figure for 8 amp discharge applications. Could you take two seried packs at 7.4ovolts each, and use a y cable set up to create a four cell paralel pack. That way you could charge both packs individually, cable in parraele for use and then uncable and charge and not worry about charging paralel packs and the inherent problems associatied therin. ?Looks like a wrote a book!
Thanks

Works for me on Opera 6.01.

"C" is capacity. For example, running a 1020 mAh cell at 3.06A (3060 mA) is running at 3C. LiPolys are said to be good for 3-3.5C continous and 5C or a bit more in short bursts.
