The capacity of a battery tells you how much charge
it can store.Some rechargeable AA
batteries for example
are rated with a capacityof 2,900mAh (=2.9Ah). This means
that they can theoretically provide a current of 2.9A for
one hour, 1.45A for two hours, or290mA for ten hours.
In reality batteries do not respond in such a linear way
- a 2,900mAh
battery would not provide29mA for 100 hours,
nor 2,900mA for one hour under normal operating conditions.
A more conservative output would be more
Use the stated capacity in mAh as a guide only.
A Leady Acid jelly battery with a rating of 4Ah theoretically
supply 4 amps for 1 hour or 1amp for 4 hours. If the battery
was used intermittantly and supplied only 1 amp it is likely that it
would supply 1 amp for a
total of more than 4 hours.
As I say use these figures as a guide.
If your motors require 5 amps then don't expect a 1Ah battery to
last 12 minutes because it won't. Better to use a minimum of 7aH
battery and probably get just over an hour out of it.
use of batteries when out sailing gives a longer overall
sailing time. Give the battery time to rest every 10 mins or so.
