[DML] Re: How to figure battery life



You take the rateing of the battery..Say it is 48 amp/hours.
This means you can draw 48 amps for one hour, or 24 amps for two 
hours, or 1 amp for 48 hours....etc.

So....the forumula is, the battery capacity in amp/hours divided by 
the load in amps.

exp:  Your load is .5 amps (500 ma). So with the 48 amp/hr battery 
you could run this load for 96 hours.
