We can see if you can find any measureable voltage drop with just a 35amp load
Then you can calculate energy and energy density so people can see what the lure of the "darkside" battery chemistry is all about,
I picked up five zippy flightmax 15C packs when you pointed out the special a couple weeks ago, and I am very impressed by them so far.
Here's a picture of one pack (5 cells, 18.5V nominal, 5Ah), and it measures 145mm X 40mm X 50mm:
Since a lifebatt/PSI/BMI is about 140mm long X 38mm dia, this would mean that a LiPo pack made with these would be almost 2.5X more energy dense than a same sized PSI/etc pack!
GO Doc, Go!!! You really should consider changing your name to DocBatt after this, since your excellent comparison charts are certainly going to be used by many internet surfers everywhere to make enlightened battery choices.
