Lipo Batteries and Charger

Lipo Batteries and Charger

Yet another component to the ZMR250 quadcopter that I had to do some research on and find the right Lipo Batteries and Charger. After looking at some forum posts and other reviews out there I noticed a few brand that seemed to be popular. One of which was Turnigy. On FPVmodel they suggested a battery from 1300 to 2200mah. I decided to go with Turnigy Nanotech 3s 45-90C 1300 mah.

For the charger I also went with Turnigy and got the Accucel 6 80w 10A Balance Charger. Most chargers do not come with a power supply. I purchased one from Hobby king. Note due to the Accucel 6 having an XT60 input for power you will need to solder an XT60 to whichever power supply you decide to get. A lot of people use laptop/desktop power supplys for their chargers or some even use a 12v battery which can be mobile.

MAKE SURE you do proper research before attempting to wire/solder up your own power supply. ALSO always follow proper charging procedures. Hobbyking sent a good warning guide with the products I ordered. NEVER charge unattended especially.

Here is a comprehensive guide on understanding lipo batteries.
