Effect of Discharge Rate

Some cell formats, such as bobbin cells, are better suited for low rates of discharge, whereas others, such as spirally wound, are ed for more rapid discharge. The following figure shows the different effects of the magnitude of discharge current upon capacity (in ampere hours) for cells designed to have high and low rates of discharge.

Effect of discharge current on the performance of high-rate and low rate cells.
