Thank you vtech.
Via OSB apps can know the voltage for each of the 80 50mAh battery in the car.
I would expect that there is some "balancing" happening .. else one single cell can be over discharged or over charged .. sp the total bettery voltage is a good indication
The battery level on the dashboard is a tricky "beast" ... when shown 0, in reality battery level is 25% ... and possible .. battery are never fully charged too ... so .. shown 0% is 25% real .. shown 100% is possible 80% real ... and for show this "tricky" beast .. it is only needed the total voltage output .. (4.25V per cell is 100% ... ~3.3v is 0% .. not 100% it can be consider liner)
People that own the right app (it cost around 20USD) can have a more acurate figures about what is shown in dash board based on the battery voltage
Note .. that under load .. battery voltage goes down .. making hard to predict battery capacity under load ... so .. I guess the PEHV must have some logic here .. it may even count the ammount of current used and use this info for update the dashboard
PS: I'm using Lithoum battery since over 10 years on RC models ... and predict the battery capacity left .. for avoid losing an RC model due to missing power ... and as well ... over charge and over discharge, plus other factor .. effect the Lithium battery life .. and these battery are relative expensive also in the RC model world ... even if price did sink a lot in the last years ...
