1203Re: 11.7 Volts from Lithium Ion Cells?
- Jun 1, 2007Hank,
I have used a 950 mAh 3-cell packs and gotten in excess of 6 hours
from them. I get a full two hours from 2-cell 250mAh packs for the
Sprints. I haven't played serious in the sprints for a while but those
25mAh packs are ideal for two hours.
One thing I would highly recommend for a non Spartan Sprint pack is
getting packs that have balancing capability. Then use either a
balancer with your charger or use a special charger that can handle
the balancing directly. Obviously for the sprints you probably don't
want the extra weight of a balancing port.
My personal opinion is that the 3-cell packs are about as much voltage
that I want to power an ATS unit with.
Hope this data point helps...
