We previously discussed how to dispose LiPo batteries, in this article we will talk about how to determine when to throw them out. Apart from physical damages, the most important factor is internal resistance (IR), which indicates the health and performance of the LiPo battery.
Here is a round up of all the LiPo batteries I tested for micro drones in 1S, 2S, 3S and 4S with capacity from 250mAh, 300mAh, 450mAh to 650mAh. Performance is based on maximum discharge rate and value, to determine which are the best for tiny whoops and micro quad.
The ToolkitRC M6 LiPo Battery Charger is super small, portable and affordable. It also has some cool features that are missing in other popular higher end chargers.
I recently tested some more 6S LiPo batteries in 2019 for racing drones and mini quads, comparing their performance including discharge rate (voltage sag), and actual capacity.
Got a new model but it takes higher cell count LiPo? Here is an easy trick on how you can potentially save some money by combining smaller batteries you might already have into a bigger one.
Given the amount of crashes we have with mini quad and racing drones, we ought to do more to protect LiPo battery from physical damage. In this tutorial I will show you the different ways of adding extra protection to your LiPo batteries.
I built several LiPo dischargers in the past but all are designed to fully discharge batteries, and none have the ability to stop at a certain voltage. The URUAV LiPo Killer is a cheap and smart battery discharger which can do that.
FPV racing drones are fueled by LiPo batteries, they are able to store and deliver large amount of power. In this guide you will learn how to read the spec of LiPo for your mini quad, and how to choose and handle them safely.
Parallel charging is an efficient way to charge multiple LiPo batteries simultaneously. Parallel charging is an effective way to quickly charge the large amount of LiPo’s that mini quad pilots use. When you do it properly, it’s quite safe.
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.
