What is the charge rate? (C-rate)

C is the first letter of Capacity, indicating the current during battery charging and discharging.

For example, when the nominal capacity of the rechargeable battery is 1800mAh, it means that the discharge time at 1800mA (1C) can last for 1 hour, such as the discharge time at 200mA (0.2C) can last for 9 hours.

Yinlong batteries can discharge at 10C, most batteries can discharge at 1C and 3C, and generally we use 1C, 0.5C and 0.2C for charging.
