3.6v vs 3.7v capacity?

I have noticed some sells are rated at 3.6 and some at 3.7. Is there a diffrence in capacity if both batteries are rated at the same mah and their both charged to 4.2v ??


Manufacturers seem to vary on the nominal voltage of lithium cells.

I suspect most Chinese manufacturers will use 3.7 as it's a bigger number than the other guy's.

There isn't actually any difference.

It seems that the lithium polymer cells tend to be rated at a nominal 3.7V - they can have much lower internal resistance than the cylindrical cells we are used to and can produce fearsome currents.
