Pelican 1550/1520 capacity?
Oh man, I know it has been a few years since high school science, but I thought I remembered how to calculate the volume of an object by converting from CC's to liters (1000 cc = 1L right?) Pelican cases are easily measured since they are rectangular.
I have been reading that the 1550 case is around 35L in capacity. When you take specs on the Pelican website 46.8cm x 35.5cm x 19.3cm, you get 32065.02 cc which would equal right around 32L. Am I missing something here?
The only thing I noticed was that on other sites that sell Pelican, such as caseclub, they list the interior dimensions in SAE units (18.94" x 14.44" x 7.75"). When you multiply each figure by 2.54 to get centimeters and then calculate the volume, it comes out to 34.7L which is close enough to 35L for me to be satisfied that they could be advertised at 35L.
If it seems I just answered my own question, then I must ask why would Pelican's own website have inaccurate numbers? I would love to know the true numbers.
I threw in the 1520 as well since I am now considering those cases instead of the 1550 due to the slightly more svelte size. There is less of a discrepancy between what my volume calculation is for Pelican's specs vs. other sites' specs (25.2L vs 25.7L), but since I am doubting my own ability to make simple calculations, I thought I'd ask.
