How and why does lead acid equivalent rating of light weight lithium batteries work?

How and why does lead acid equivalent rating of light weight lithium batteries work?

(OP)
Hi dear enthusiasts,

I just would like to confirm something that I have read over the internet and still think that I have some doubts. Am I correct that the "PbEq" amp-hour ratings used on lightweight lithium batteries are three times higher than what the amp-hour capacity of the actual battery is? I read somewhere that they include the "PbEq" rating for "starting purposes". What are the precautions of this and what type of issues can this cause if not considered. Also I do appreciate if someone could tell me how the maths for converting the lithium capacity to lead acid equivalent (i.e. "PbEq") works out?

Many Many thanks bigsmile
