I'll let others expand on it that know far more than I ... but that's my take on the situation ...
What is the formula for calculating watts? How does the motor play into the calculation, or is it calculated on the battery pack only? I suppose that knowing the appropriate formulas and how to apply them is a big part of what I am lacking as a newbie. Also, I don't yet own any proper testing devices, so any advice what I should acquire and where to read up on the subject will be greatly appreciated.
