20C vs. 40C Watts at same discharge rate?
Given three exact batteries except the C rating...
1800mAh 4S Lipo Pack 20C
Constant Discharge: 20C (36A)
Peak Discharge (10sec): 30C (54A)
1800mAh 4S Lipo Pack 30C
Constant Discharge: 30C (54A)
Peak Discharge (10sec): 40C (72A)
1800mAh 4S Lipo Pack 40C
Constant Discharge: 40C (72A)
Peak Discharge (10sec): 50C (90A)
With the same discharge rate of 36Amp for each pack, would the 40C pack hold its Voltage better and offer higher Wattage?
using acurately rated(neither over nor under rating) 40C and 20C packs:
at 20C discharge, you get roughly 5.6% more voltage and 11% more power from the 40C pack.
at 40C bursts, you get 12.5% more voltage and 26.6% more power from the 40C pack.
at 5C mild discharge, you get 1.3% more volts and 2.6% more power from the 40C pack.
