  1. you are calculating the build with the maximum discharge rate(10amp), not the continuous (5amp)… so in my logic the safest lowest build is .9 ohm.
    but you’re the God of steam. Where am I wrong? And why wouldn’t you use it in a mechanical since it´s a protected battery?

      • Pulse ratings are a lie. There really is no such thing. That started because of a spec sheet for the Sony VTC3 which mentioned max draw before damage being momentary 60A, which still damages the battery, that’s just the maximum it can take before absolute risk of failure.
