We are looking for fitting batteries. We found an offer with the required size and capacity. Still, the distributor warns that the batteries are not suitable as a battery for motor-driven models. They state that the battery can handle a continuous discharge current of 0.5C (which I learned today correspond to discharge of 250 mA over 1 hour for the suggested 500 mAh battery). The maximum discharge current is stated with 2C for 10 seconds.
I then checked what the battery usage of the components would sum up to. We bought the S070M-RCG-40, powered at 3VDC and rated with 0.5 W power consumption. If I haven't made a mistake, this results in ~167 mA per valve. For a fully equipped FlowIO device (7 valves) this would results in 7 * 0,167 A = ~1,17 A. This seems quite a lot to me and definitely exceeds the 0.5C of the battery. Therefore, my question is if I miscalculated something on the way or if my assumption is correct and the very battery isn't suitable for the FlowIO?
