What does 30 C mean on a LiPo battery?

C-rating is an indicator for the nominal discharge rate a lipo can provide. A 30C 5000mAh can provide a continous current of 150 amps. A 50C 5000mAh can provide a continous current of 250 amps. So if you have a 100 amps power sytem both lipo’s will discharge at the same rate.

What does the 25c mean in Lipos?

C Rating is an indicator of the continuous and burst discharge rate of a LiPo battery. It allows users to easily calculate the maximum current you can draw from the LiPo safely without damaging the battery. Max Current Draw = Capacity x C-Rating.

What does 20C and 30C mean?

20C is 60/20 or 3.0 minutes. 30C is 60/30 or 2.0 minutes. If your flights at 100% throttle are always longer than 3 minutes than a 20C battery is plenty.

What does 80C mean on LiPo battery?

For example, a 1300mAh 80C battery can theoretically provide 1.3Ah * 80C = 104A. This means that both the capacity of the battery, and the C-rating contribute to the maximum current a battery can draw in continuous supply.

What is the difference between 30C and 50C LiPo?

The 50C battery would be capable of delivering more current than 30C one, if needed. However, if nothing else in your power system has changed, it will draw the same current as before. You have some extra current capability, which you are not using, so you will not see any difference in flying or charging times.

What does a higher C rating mean on a LiPo battery?

The lipo battery capacity and its C rating are inversely proportional, which means, as the C rating goes higher, capacity goes down. The C rating allows its users to calculate the maximum current that can be drawn from the lipo battery without damaging or overheating the battery itself.

What does C mean on LiPo batteries?

The C rating for a LiPo battery, quite simply, refers to the capacity of energy the battery can safely discharge, represented as a multiple of its overall capacity. A battery that has a higher C rating delivers more energy, and that means higher performance.

What is difference between 50C and 30C LiPo battery?
