I am trying to figure out the maximum current I can pull from different battery types. Cursory research suggests this isn't a commonly reported values, maybe it is close enough to the capacity such that approaching it leaves battery life too short to care about it.
- LR41 batteries shorting across a multimeter provide about 220 mA of current
- A single cell, protected, lithium ion battery provides 1.4 A of current
- Is there a way to predict the maximum discharge rate of alkaline batteries?
- Maximum discharge rate appears to vary with voltage/use - is there a relationship plotted for this phenomenon?
Slightly used LR41 batteries in series have a higher voltage (3.3V) than my slightly discharged lithium cell (3.0V). Yet, an LED attached to the LR41 batteries is dimmer than the lithium cell. Current seems limited through one out of the three-series-LR41 batteries, though voltage appears to remain appropriately high. Curious about this relationship between remaining charge, maximum current, and voltage.
