At 1C discharge rate 100% DoD, the cycle life of 30Q is nothing but total disaster in comparison by almost all cells on the market.Ohbse wrote: ↑Feb 05 2020 10:48pmEach time you clarify, it makes it significantly more confusing...
A 30q that is cycled at 1a output will last for longer than one that's cycled at 3amps which will last longer than one cycled at 10a etc. Both time spent discharging AND number of cycles over its life.
Put another way, a 30q that completes 250 cycles @ 10a discharge will lose MORE of its original capacity than one that is cycled 250 times @ 3a discharge.
Higher discharge power = shorter lifespan.
Deeper discharge = shorter lifespan.
I have cycle tested 30q vs hg2 and several others at all sorts of power levels. After extensive testing I bought 5000 30q's. I have one pack that has done ~30,000 km with less than 10% of its original capacity loss when tested. It does sag more under load, but not unacceptably and is now being retired from daily use anyway.
I think 1c is 3amps?
this is great, you are the perfect person for me to ask a question.
you have a 30Q pack 30,000km on it, can you tell me how many p the pack is and what amps you normally use?
