How to Use Drone Batteries Properly
Is drone battery life short? Are you using your drone battery correctly? How to extend the life of drone batteries?
There are many kinds of drone batteries, mainly because there are many kinds of drones, and the requirements for the battery performance parameters are different according to the needs of the drones, but no matter what the difference is, no matter what the difference is , but only the battery capacity, voltage and discharge current are different. As a professional drone battery manufacturer, Spard shares the following methods of using drone batteries. If you are interested, please don't miss it.
(1) Before installing the drone battery, check whether the battery is normal and whether the battery performance parameters are suitable for the current use of the drone.
If the battery performance parameters are too small, the drone may not be able to be carried, or the aircraft can fly, but the battery is prone to overheating or scrapping; if the battery performance parameters are too large, the excessive voltage may burn the drone.
(2) Use a fully charged battery to avoid false battery life estimates
Before flying, be sure to fully charge the battery to ensure that the battery is fully charged.
(3) Pay attention to the ambient temperature, the battery needs to be preheated in a low temperature environment
The suitable working temperature of the battery is between -10°C and 40°C.
In a low temperature environment below 5°C, the battery needs to be fully preheated to more than 20°C. After takeoff, keep the aircraft hovering for about 1 minute, let the battery use the internal heat to fully warm up.
(4) Insert the battery first and then turn it on, and the fixed buckle should be locked
Before flying, the remote control should be turned on. Do not remove or insert the battery while the battery power is on.
(5) Before the drone takes off, a small current should be discharged
Discharging and preheating the battery of the drone is mainly to fully mobilize the internal chemical reaction of the battery, so as not to cause the battery to overheat and cause serious internal attenuation or scrapping.
(6) Check the battery status and set the battery alarm reasonably
After turning on the aircraft correctly, you should check the current status of the battery through the App, and set the low battery alarm and serious low battery alarm values reasonably according to the flight requirements.
(7) During the flight, always pay attention to the alarm prompt
Violent flying should be avoided during flight to prevent excessive battery output power, and the battery temperature should be monitored at any time, and corresponding emergency measures should be taken in time: if the aircraft enters the low battery alarm mode, it should land as soon as possible; if the App prompts that the battery cell is abnormal or damaged, please stop use this battery.
(8) In hot weather, you should fly with caution
When flying in high temperature weather, you should check the current temperature of the battery at any time. If it is higher than 65°C, you should reduce the flight intensity. If the battery temperature is higher than 70°C, it may cause the battery to catch fire or even explode.
(9) Turn off the power first, then take out the battery, and finally turn off the remote control
The ideal storage environment for batteries is a dry and cool place of 22-28°C.
When storing, be careful not to place the battery near heat sources (such as direct sunlight, fire, heating furnace, etc.), and do not touch any liquid, or store or transport it together with glasses, watches, metal necklaces or other metal objects.
(10) Try to stabilize the discharge during the flight, do not suddenly large or small discharge, that is, do not suddenly operate the drone to fly at high speed;
(11) Do not over-discharge or over-charge the drone battery
Over-discharge means that the battery is completely discharged, that is, the aircraft can't fly, but the rotor can still be turned, so that it can be turned to stop, so deep discharge is also very unfriendly to the internal materials of the electric. If the battery is overcharged, it is also unfriendly to the internal materials of the battery, which will cause more or less damage to the battery and reduce the battery life.
(12) Do not charge and discharge at too high or too low temperature
We believe everyone knows this. High temperature damages the battery. At present, a good drone battery can withstand 60°C and work normally. Generally, it will be below 50°C. As for low temperature, good It can work in the range of -20°C to 55°C, generally above 0°C to 50°C.
(13) Try to prevent the drone battery from colliding
The battery is most afraid of collision, because the collision can easily lead to the fragmentation and deformation of the internal materials of the battery, resulting in a short circuit and scrapping.
