Review: Ummagrip Sticky Battery Pad

by Oscar

The Ummagrip Universal Super Sticky Battery Pad is designed for holding the LiPo on a mini quad, so it doesn’t slide out or move during flight. I have been using it for over 6 months and I’d like to share my experience with it.

The Ummagrip is made by Ummagawd (Tommy) from Rotor Riot. It was originally for his frame, the Remix. But later he decided to release it as a product on its own.

Where to Buy?

Original Version (3mm thick)

Lite Version (1.5mm thick)

The Ummagrip battery pad is a 100mm by 50mm sheet. On one side, we have 3M adhesive double-sided tape, on the other side is some 3mm thick, sticky, “silicone rubber” like material.

Is it Really Worth It?

When Tommy sent me this to try last year, I didn’t think much of it. But after using this stuff for over 6 months, I became obsessed with it and it was already on all my builds.

So far I haven’t seen any alternatives out there. The closest thing I have found is this: But these don’t have the thickness and don’t protect your battery from getting punctured by bolts on the frame in crashes as well. That’s what I really like about the Ummagrip, the 3mm thick soft material can keep the battery well away from any bolts on the frame.

You don’t need much on a quad either, one sheet should be enough for several quads. Two little rectangular pieces are all I need on a quad.

When it gets dirty and loses tackiness, just wipe it with a damp cloth to remove all the dust. It gets sticky again after some cleaning.

Not only useful on quads, you can also stick it on anything you want to prevent from sliding, like your keyboard on the desk, or power supply on the bench etc.

How sticky is it? People tried sticking their battery on the Ummagrip pad without using a battery straps, and it was holding the battery well even after doing flips and rolls. So yea, it can be quite sticky! :)

Let me know if you are able to find something similar to this :) But so far I am very happy with Ummagrip!

Reusing Ummagrip

Can you take the ummagrip pad off and re-use it? Yes.

But because you will ruin the adhesive on it, you will need some glue to stick it to the new quad. E6000 glue is a good option, it’s a flexible glue (not brittle), and it sticks really well. It can be peeled off when needs to be, so it’s easy to work with.

You need to link Tommy’s video where he flies without a strap. That instantly sold it for me ?

I believe it’s a nano rubber pad. The same stuff used on those sticky cellphone pad thingy which cost around $1 each. Actually, I’ve been using the $1 pad before the Ummagrip exist and it works awesome!
