Here are the FMA answers to my questions:


Dear Mark,

To answer your questions:

What does 20C / 90% mean? 20C = 20 times the rated capacity. If you are discharging at 20C, you will have 90% of the rated capacity.

What is the "peak" discharge rate of this battery if 42 amps is the "continuous" discharge rate? Not rated.

Can this battery sustain a discharge of a higher amperage for short periods of time without being damaged? (I have an electric powered glider that will draw about 54 amps with this battery unless I prop it down. Typical power on cycle is about 30 to 45 seconds.) No, the maximum continuous discharge is as stated.

Sincerely,

Howard G. Matos
