Li-Poly batteries by Johnlikessailing Commander   Posted: 11 days ago
The simple way to understand the “C” or capacity rating is to think about it as what you can draw from the battery. There are two numbers. The first (lower number) is what you can draw continuously and the second (higher number) can be draw for around 10 seconds. To convert the “C” you multiply the number by the amperage of the battery (not the mah). So the 4400mah is 4.4 amps multiplied by 65(C) = 286amps which you can draw continuously. The 4500mah is 4.5 amps multiplied by 35(C) = 157.5amps which you can draw continuously. As already said the higher the C the better to keep it cool.

Pusher Tug by Johnlikessailing Commander   Posted: 11 days ago
Mine is about the same it has two lead acid batteries for ballast.

Pusher Tug by Johnlikessailing Commander   Posted: 11 days ago
The pusher tug was built from a kit to rescue other boats. It has proved to be very handy, it was simple and fun to build. It is powered by a 550 brushed motor with a 7.2volt Nimh battery.
