I was wondering if someone out there knows how to convert volts and milliamps to determine how long a bettery should run on a charge.
I will be getting a new custom battery pack this week. The old battery pack had 10 AA NimH batteries, each with 500 milliamps. The baterries were in packs of 5 and run parallel. Therefore each pack had 6 volts and the pack has a total of 1,000 milliamps.
My new pack will also have 10 AA Nimh batteries, but the difference is that each battery will have 4,000 milliamps instead of 500. I believe that the two parallel sets of 5 batteries will yield a total of 8,000 milliamps compared to the 1,000 milliamps of the old pack.
Does anyone know the equation to calculate how long a 10, 20 halogen and a combination of the light bulbs should burn with the new batter pack?
