Capacity Test
The test for capacity was done much the same as in the first shootout, all packs were fully charged on a Duratrax ICE (selected because it’s still arguably the most prevalent charger on the market) at a 1C rate, then discharged to 3.0 volts per cell (6.0 volts on all these 2S packs) at a 1C discharge rate (5 amps for the packs listed as 5000 mah, and a 5.2 amp rate for the lone 5200 mah pack). Capacity was determined at the end of the discharge.

Remember: The tests are all scored by points, lowest to highest. The lower the score the better, like a game of golf.
