What is UAV Battery?


An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone is defined as a powered aerial vehicle that does not carry a human operator or human pilot. The system includes a UAV, ground based controller and a system of communication.

The most common type of battery that powers racing and photography drones is lithium-polymer or LiPo, a kind of lithium-ion battery that packs more energy storage into smaller spaces.

  • Charging

It is better to charge your batteries outdoors. If you have to charge indoors, set up fire-containment measures just in case.

  • Storage

Drain batteries before storing them in a safe, temperate place.

  • Transport

Keep batteries padded and secured in transit. Pack your drone and its batteries in your carry-on baggage for a flight.

  • Use

Avoid flying in extreme temperatures and also don’t drain the battery too fast.

An average drone will only fly for around 10 minutes. High end drones can last much longer, often 20 minutes or more. As with most things, the price you pay greatly impacts how long your drone will last.
