Default Capacity vs Voltage curves for lipos

I am looking for the capacity vs voltage plots for my Great Planes lipo batteries. Is there a place I can go to get these or does someone out there have access to these? The curves need to be included with the batteries.

Default RE: Capacity vs Voltage curves for lipos

Most Lithium Polymer batteries will have the same curve of voltage versus capacity. Look at the curve in the "Gas Gauging" section of my latest AMP'D column called, [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/magazine/article_display.cfm?article_id=1183]Storing Lithium for Longevity[/link]. Simply use the same voltages under light load for your capacity battery.
