Apple hit with another faulty hardware lawsuit – this time it's the Watch


Re: Apple's not alone...

and relatively high current usage compared to capacity (>1C)

Do you wish to rephrase that?

1C is the current which discharges the battery in one hour. It also happens to be the way the battery capacity is defined (the rate at which it can be discharged for 1 hour). If the Apple watch discharges the battery at a little greater than 1C that is not a high current, since the battery rating is measured at that current. 10C would be a high current. Depending on the internals, even 5C might be a high current. What it does mean, if correct, is that the watch has to be charged more than once an hour.

I'll ask again: do you wish to rephrase that?
