Lipo batteries degrade over time, sometimes this degradation results in dead cells. It seems to be a waste to throw the whole pack away because other cells might still be working. In this post we will show you how to make a working LiPo by combining the good cells from multiple damaged/defective batteries.
Before throwing away damaged or old LiPo batteries, you should first drain them completely until there is no charge left. In this article I will show you how to build a battery discharger using high power resistors.
The inevitable question for RC hobbyists is how to get rid of old or damaged LiPo (Lithium polymer battery). There are tons of videos online showing how dangerous LiPo batteries can be if not handled correctly, causing explosions and fire. In this guide we will show you how to dispose damaged and old LiPo batteries safely.
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.
Charging LiPo batteries in the field is an excellent way to let you fly for longer. I will share my field charging solution which I believe is better than buying more LiPo batteries in many aspects.
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.
Today we are testing the Fusion 4S 1500mAh LiPo battery from DemonRC. It’s labelled 666C which is joke as it’s the devil’s number. This is funny but it doesn’t tell us what to expect though so it would be interesting to find out how it performs.
In this review, I tested some popular 6S LiPo batteries for racing drones and mini quads, comparing their performance including capacity, discharge rate, and internal resistance.
4S LiPo is currently the standard battery cell count for FPV mini quads and racing drones. As we are all continuously striving for more performance in our quadcopters, 6S setups might be a better option, or not?
We will have a look at the new BattGo Technology which could be useful for LiPo batteries safety. It will also help you keep track of the battery’s internal resistance, status and other info, and it tells the charger how they like to be handled.
I will show you how to build a DIY LiPo Battery discharger easily with 12V halogen light bulbs. It’s capable of discharging 2S, 3S, 4S, 5S and 6S LiPo batteries.
