A series of tests have been undertaken to determine the mean watt-minutes per gram capability for various loadings of a second generation, small 1320 mAh lithium-polymer battery. These tests were conducted to establish the viability of this power source for use in small lift vehicles and other devices where lightweight, short term, high-energy demand rates are needed.
