6 parameters for choosing the best drone battery
Are you looking for best drone battery to extend your flight times up to 20 minutes even more? Here will tell you the main parameters for choosing a lipo battery for your drone. As we know, all power are supplied by the lipo battery, which can greatly impact the pilot’s experience. Therefore that’s why I write this article.
Normally, more capacity is mean more power and more energy. In fact As the battery gets larger, the increase in flight time becomes ineffective, because of the weight of battery. You should have to think about the weight when consider the capcity, Should not be absorbed in choosing bigger capacity battery simply.
Discharge Rate is yet another crucial aspect that need to be checked before you decide to settle for any battery for your drone.You need to get a battery whose C rating is convenient for your drone. You have to compare target c-rating and battery c-racing. In short, my principle is that battery c-racing is greater than target c-rating but not too higher.
With a higher cell count, performance is maintained above par. However, higher cell counts translate to an increase in weight which, in some cases, affects performance. Choosing the right voltage of battery, you should reference in the datasheet of motor and esc.
There are many common connectors include Deans, XT60, EC3 and JST etc. What is the performance impact of these connectors?
- JST connector – up to 5A
- XT60 connectors- up to 60 Amps
- Deans – up to 60 Amps
- EC3 connector – up to 60 Amps
- EC5 connector- up to 120 Amps
HV & smart & graphene battery?
HV mean high voltage battery, smart mean smart battery.
The high voltage lipo battery is meaning 4.35v per cell, more power more energy. The smart battery can internally measure voltage and current, and deduce charge level and SoH (State of Health) parameters etc.
Graphene battery, graphene is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity and has interesting light absorption abilities. Turnigy graphene have done better in this regard.
Tattu , Bonka, Multistar, Turnigy , Zippy , Graphene , SMC, Dronelabs, Ready MadeRC, ThunderPower, Floureon, Venom, Pulse , E-flite etc. Which one is the best one? All of them are good enough, I highly recommend Tattu battery.
Choosing the right drone battery is no doubt important, and looking after your lipo battery is also important.
