Customer reviews

Not a 1500mAh battery as advertised … let me explain

 

This review is from: Tera 1500mAh battery upgrade for the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition Helicopter

I bought this battery online and noticed something strange, the same as my other brand battery has a 1300mAh rating considering. Putting my engineering hat on I wondered how that could be. I am familiar with the LiPo battery world and I know that no significant progress in technology in this market has been in years, so that leaves one of two things; a) the battery mAh figure is lower than it is valued, or b) has a terrible lower discharge rating.

Putting the battery on the scale weighs 110 grams, while my Bastens brand 1300mAh battery weighs 100. This is strange, because the hard case must weigh at least 10 grams, so I took it apart and weighed only the case … the case is 16 grams. Ok, something funny is going on here. The raw parts of the 1500mAh battery weighs 94 grams! This is considerably less than the 1300mAh * * and more importantly less than the stock 1000mAh battery hard case !!! I note that the Parrot AR.Drone brand 1500mAh battery weighs more than 130 grams …. hmmmm;)

I decided it was time to measure mAh on the next load, I a charger that only measure it. The trick is to make a lower amp charging current to get the most accurate test. My results were as I suspect (shown at right in terms of this list, the ‘Customer Images’), it only took a 1292mAh charge.

Now you may be wondering maybe I did not deplete the battery well for charging or charge my meter is wrong. I ran this test on a different brand of battery found here Bastens LiPo battery 1300mAh battery upgrade for the Parrot AR Drone 1 & 2 or here with a charger Bastens LiPo battery 1300mAh battery upgrade and balance charger for the Parrot AR Drone 1 & 2 batteries Note the Bastens brand battery has a 1272mAh charge. Note that I used both batteries in the drone until I then battery cells measured nearly empty warning, both batteries were about 3.65v per cell. Point is my test was reasonable and scientific.

The question is why others have such good reviews, are simple. They can be compared with the stock 1000mAh 1300mAh battery and, of course, also a battery pack will be better. The point of this study is that this product falsely advertising the mAh rating of the battery. My guess is that it has a low discharge quality rating as a result you get fewer cycles

In short this battery fails on many fronts :.
1) not as advertised, really a 1300mAh battery
2) has a poor drainage appreciation resulting in fewer cycles (will not last that long)
3) shame about the manufacture and sales who are selling this battery!

I do not know about you, but I will stay clear of this battery in the future. There is no cheating this weight other than by cutting the capacity of the trunk. This is why I use a soft case battery, it is the only way to save weight without giving up the quality and capacity

Happy Shopping

UPDATE:.! OMG! I just noticed that taking a look at the image product, see the “charge up” on the label. Note it says 1.3A. This proves my point, again let me explain. The general rule is LiPo battery should be charged at 1C which mean the ability once. In this case, as they suggest to recharge the battery on 1.3Amps than the capacity needs to 1.3Ah (aka 1300mAh) make use of the line 1C. Case closed.
