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 allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries simultaneously using a single charger. 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.
The recommended LiPo batteries on this page have been tested and you won’t be disappointed by the performance and value. Due to the difficulties in shipping LiPo batteries thesedays, price and availability are the most important considerations in my opinion. Getting them locally can usually save you a great deal of money.
Lipo battery balance plug can sometimes be damaged by spinning propellers in flight. it’s extremely unsafe to use this LiPo with a broken balance lead as it can short itself easily and cause fire. In this article I will show you how I fixed mine.
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.
