    Inteligent battery specs.

    The few places I've seen the "C" rating stated for our batteries, it has been 10C. Without rehashing N017RW's math above, it means our little battery, at a 10C or 52Ah discharge rate, would be depleted after about 6 minutes, probably ruined and pretty darn warm, too.

    9" Step Stool for TakeOff and Landing
