Default Help me convert 10A #'s to 30 or 35 amp #'s

Like the title says, I have some batteries I am testing using the "matching" feature of my LRP Pulsar 2 charger. Since it can only discharge at 10 amps I get the following from one of my packs: 7.18v and 1006s. How can I get 30 or 35 amp numbers with this? Thanks for the help!

Can't help you on voltage there since there is really no formula around it.

But for runtime...30amp land, you are at about 335 secs, 35 amp at about 287 secs. Take your secs times 10, then divide by 30 or 35. I believe that's the formula.

It is impossible to extrapolate equivalent 30A or 35A numbers from a 10A discharge.

Reason being that the cells perform very differently under a high 35A load than they do at 10A.

It's probably the case that weak cells would give decent figures at 10A, but be absolutely rotten at 30A or 35A. 10A is nothing in 1/10th RC terms. Average load over a 5 min stock race is 25A or more now.
