D sized batteries.

Post by ransoman » Wed Aug 09, 2006 8:29 am

Was just researching batteries on wikipedia. Do "D" sized batteries really have a capacity of 19500 MaH (19.6aH). Thats massive.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_battery_sizes#AA

Are the capacities listed here accurate?

Yes, but

1. They're big
2. 1V
3. They're (probably) expensive

1.2v for NiMH. they have really high capacity but take a ton of space. i used Cs because they're a good balance of bulk and capacity

1. Yep.
2. Series+Parallel=MAGIC!!!
3. Not really, especially compared to some of the other batteries on the market.

Series? What do you plan to do, tape them together & throw them in a back pack?

I'm sorry ataridude. You've been wrong about every response to a question so far. And that's 266 times.

1. I know, It is for another project i am working on. Nothing to do with portables would you believe.
2. Wrong, 1.5v
3. £9 for 10. not too bad.

These beasts will be used for an electric motor.

just want someone to comfirm the HUGE capacity.
