    Batteries in parallel

    I think the answer is yes but i'll throw this out there. If you have 2 50c batteries in parallel does that make the output 100c?

    C-rating is a measure of a cell's continuous discharge rate.
    Whether cells are connected in series or parallel, the C-rating does not change.

    HOWEVER, since maximum current draw equals capacity times C-rating;
    AND you've effectively doubled the capacity;
    the maximum current draw will be doubled.

    Ok, thanks. So i guess the reason my drag car accelerates faster is there are more amps available at the batteries 50c rating.
