LiPo Shootout – Voltage Under Load Tests

LiPo Shootout – Voltage Under Load Test
Packs were fully charged at 1C, then discharged at 30 amps continuous to a cut off point of 6.0 total volts by a Competition Electronics Turbo 35. We chose 30 amps because it’s a heavy enough load to create problems in poor packs, and it’s also relatively close to what many drivers will pull on a consistent basis when using brushless motors.
