Welcome! This calculator will allow you to calculate an appropriate battery size in Amp-hours given load, supplied voltage, duration, battery type and charge.

Choosing the most appropriate battery for a circuit is a critical choice in designing a selected circuit. The type of battery also plays a crucial part in implementing this.

The most important specification of a battery is its current rating. The rated capacity of any battery expresses the average amount of current it releases over a period of time under normal use. For example, a 4000Ah battery can deliver 100 A for 40 hours.

The type of battery selected also plays an important role in battery size. Lead-acid batteries have a battery rating proportional to their discharge rate.

For lithium-ion batteries:

For lead-acid batteries:
