cells are rated for 500 amps continuous duty and 800 amps pulse.
This means we could discharge them (the pack) at 500 amps and not
have the cells get above their maximum operating temperature. The
cells can deliver the 700 amps we require but the effectiveness
of our cooling system will determine how long we can run at full
are the batteries to do the job.
as an additional bonus, the new cells, Kokam tells us, have even
better cycle life. They are conservatively rated for >800 100%
discharge cycles. Graphs at Kokam's internet site give indications
that they might last many more cycles.
