I'm trying to build a portable water boiler that boils a very small amount of water (50ml) very fast (1-2min). In order to do so I need to power a 150 watt resistor. Is it possible to power it with a 6s lipo battery and a step up converter? Can i draw 7A continuously out of the battery? What wire gauge do i need in order to carry that current at that voltage? Do i actually need a step up? Will the battery overheat? Can it be done with 18650s? Thanks
