9 Cell capacity The capacity of a cell is measured in ampere-hours (Ah). A fully charged 50 Ah battery rated for 10 h discharge can be discharged at a steady current of 5 A for 10 h, but if the load current is increased to 10 A then the battery is discharged in 3–4 h, since the higher the discharge current, the lower is the effective capacity of the battery.
