Li-Po Batteries for RC controlled drones and quadcopters

A lithium polymer battery (commonly knows as LiPo, LIP, Li-poly, and others), is a rechargeable battery of lithium-ion technology using a polymer electrolyte instead of a liquid one. Where weight is a critical feature, Li-Po batteries are an excellent choice.

Most important LiPo battery brands and manufacturers:

  • ChinaHobbyLine (CNHL);
  • Ovonic;
  • Tattu;
  • GensAce;
  • Auline;
  • ZOPBattery;
  • Zippy
  • Giant Battery;
  • InfinityLiPo;
  • Floureon;
  • Turnigy;
  • Nano-Tech;
  • Multistar Racer;
  • Rhino;
  • Dinogy;
  • GaoNeng GNB;
  • Hyperion.

According to the number of cells, you can find 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, and 7s Li-Po batteries. The 3s and 4s are commonly used by racing drone quadcopters.

Note: Li-Po batteries are highly explosive, charge them only with a proper charger!!!

Crazepony 2s 500mAh review
About a month ago I received two pieces of Crazepony 2S/500mAh LiPo packs for review. Unfortunately, due to ESC failure, my FullSpeed TinyLeader was stuck on the ground so I had to wait with the battery performance tests till I repair it. As most Power Whoops are sold without battery, first thing you need to do prior to your flight...

Tattu 100C R-Line HV LiPo Battery review
When I review niche products like this Tattu R-Line 4s HV LiPo battery, it is very hard to find an exciting introduction.

While standard LiPo packs can be charged with up to 4.2V/cell, the Tattu R-Line HV LiPo allows you...

GensAce Tattu 2s vs 3s LiPo comparison
Last week I received from Gens Ace two Li-Po batteries for review. The Tattu 2s 800 mAh and Tattu 3s 450 mAh. Firstly, I thought about making an individually test of each battery, but latter I found it more helpful to make a side by side comparison of them. Both Li-Po batteries are suitable for micro class FPV drones like the Blade...
