I would like to know about selecting the proper lipo batteries. For example, for the following motor spec a suitable battery has to be selected(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Motor Kv 540KV RPM/Volt

(What does KV in 540KV represent?)

Max Continuous Current 115 Amps

Max Continuous Power 4800 Watts

Max Lipo Cell 12s

(Does 12s means a 12-cell battery?)

Now assume the following battery spec

LiPo Battery 5000mAh 10-Cell 37V

Does this mean the battery can supply a 5 Amp-hr *37 volt * 10 cells = 1850 watt-hr?

How to find how long this battery can be used to power the above motor?

(I would like to choose a suitable battery that can run the motor for 1 hour or more)

My query might be childish. However, would like to to learn something. Can someone please explain me with simple calc?

Regards
