    So two of the values in the calculation are voltage [V] and current [A]

    If im using a dual parallel 18650 mod, are these values then multiplied x2 based on the number of cells?

    Or do they stay constant (x1) regardless of the number of cells in use?

    Is it the same for series mods?

    Batteries in series add voltage, so for them, yes x2
    Your parallel batts only increase capacity, milliamphours, so x1
    If you're flying close to the edge, remember the batts are nominally 3.7v, but at full charge 4.2v is a better value to use in your calcs, I reckon

    is this for mechanical, or regulated? regulated used watt's law

    but for mechs, what aqua said
