Thanks for informing us of this! Now we know how the process is supposed to work so if FedEx comes looking for money I can tell them this and push back. I believe I still have all the paperwork. I will keep you posted.

I found it. I'll be ready if FedEx calls. I feel much better now knowing we're not supposed to be charged for this.

tyah again if they duid not charge taxes thats good. but customs has the right to charge you a "service" see merely for opening the box......even if they decide not to charge taxes.
its all up on the homeland security website

I guess he means he tossed it by now. Do you guys keep copies? Maybe you could scan it and send it to customs for him?

John,
I know it's not specific to your batteries, but I'd like an educated opinion on batteries...

Maximum current draw = C rating * capacity. Cool. Is that total capacity, or capacity remaining?

I've always taken is to be total, but an idea is floating around the EDF fora that as the pack depletes, so does it's ability to safely deliver current. What's your take? (if not as a representative, at least as a knowledgeble dude!)

total capacity of course
the standard is the whatever c rate the battery is claimed to be it should be able to deliver those amps from full charge to 3.0v without serious overheats......no one actually specifies what overheating actually means or how many cycles you should be able to perform. even the worst of cells could probably do 60c oncce.

my take.........the cell/pck should not excess 70 - 75degC under this type of constant current loading.......about 100 times at least
