Amperage of 50 farads at 12 volts

  1. Jul 22, 2013 #1
    Dear Experts

    If I have 50 farads at 12 v, does this mean this power bank can discharge 600amps in 1 second based on 1 farad = 1 amp per second per volt ?

    Thanks for reading.

    Regards
    Ramone

    I get an average of [STRIKE]525A[/STRIKE] 600A, but the series [STRIKE]inductance [/STRIKE] impedance of that big of a set of capacitors would probably limit the peak discharge current.

    What the heck are you wanting to build?

    Dear Berkeman

    Thanks for your advice.

    I am trying to build a powerbank for an electric drill.

    Thanks !!

    Best regards
