Thanks to Acehe for sending us their latest LiPo batteries – the Formula 4S 95C 1300mAh and 1500mAh for testing. In this review we will put them on a mini quad and see how they perform.
Looking for recommendation of 4S LiPo batteries for 5″ and 6″ FPV mini quad? In this article we revealed some of the best batteries recommended by the community in April 2017.
Multirotors are fueled by LiPo battery, they are able to store and deliver large amount of energy. In this guide you will learn how to read the spec of LiPo for your drones, and how to use and handle them safely.
The inevitable question for RC hobbyists is how to get rid of old or damaged LiPo (Lithium polymer battery). There are tons of Youtube videos showing how dangerous LiPo batteries can be if not handled correctly, causing explosions and fire flames. So how do we dispose damaged or old LiPo batteries safely?
I have been using the Dronelab 50C 4S batteries, and I really like them. Recently they released a new version which is branded 75C and I am going to test it see how they perform compared to the old drone lab.
Hans Turpyn, a group member of Multicopter International Facebook Group showed me how he fix damaged/defective LiPo batteries by combining the good cells.
We have been hearing good things about LiHV batteries, which is reportedly better than traditional LiPo, especially for mini quad racing. I ran some tests and tried to find out which battery is better.
Just a quick and easy DIY project how I built a LiPo Battery discharger with some 12V halogen light bulbs. In theory, it works for 2S, 3S, 4S, 5S and 6S LiPo.
I recently received a Drone Lab 4S 1500mah LiPo from RadioC.co.uk for review. I have flown with this battery more than 10 times now, and so far I am very pleased.
