A frequently used sub-unit is the ampere-hour (A. h).
A larger unit of the quantity of electricity is the ampere-hour (a. h).
This charging rate, for 8 hours should be, as we have seen, one-eighth of the ampere-hour capacity of the battery.
It should register in amperes, one-eighth of the ampere-hour capacity of the battery, as already explained.
Depth of discharge (DOD) is normally stated as a percentage of the nominal ampere-hour capacity; 0% DOD means no discharge.
Individual batteries are usually arranged into large battery packs of various voltage and ampere-hour capacity products to give the required energy capacities.
