Parallel charging is an efficient way to charge multiple LiPo batteries simultaneously. When it’s done safely, you can quickly charge many LiPo’s at the same time to minimize waiting given the short flight time FPV drones have.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
