Top 5 Miniquad Batteries – September 2017

 

Tattu R-Line

Tattu, as well as its sister company Gens Ace, produce high quality lipos for not only for our application of miniquads but also for large hover ships used for Aerial Photography. These batteries are available in a wider range of capacities than most brands and cell counts, from 3s to 6s (for those of you who are crazy), and 1000 to 2200mAh. Most people think that these batteries perform well, especially the 75C rated packs. However like most high end packs these don’t come cheap, with a 1300mAh 4S 75C coming in at €35.99!

Bonus

If you want a slightly cheaper option which still olds up to heavy use try the normal Tattos, they have been a staple of the hobby for a long while and have prooven themselves time and time again.

Infinity Graphene

The infinity Graphene was designed from the ground up as  specially designed Racing Drone batteries. They offer High C rates of 70C as well as high number of Charge Cycles. Furthermore they even support 15C fast charging, making them perfect for in the field use. As well of as this the high quality control decreases the likelihood of frayed wires or ripped out solder joints in a bad crash. In our testing we have found that they perform well and have proved themselves multiple times out in the field.

Turnigy Graphene

Though still new and not fully tested the Turnigy Graphenes have been getting some positive feed back from the community, many pilots are finding the Graphenes are cooler after a flight and they seem to have quite good life spans (however they haven’t been out for long enough for us to be sure). They have also been measuring very low resistance rates, sometimes as low as 1.2Ohms (3 Ohms is average for a new lipo).  They also have been shown to maintain very respectable discharge rates as well as extremely high charge rates, Hobbyking quote as high as 15C (though we wouldn’t recommend this). The only issue with the Turnigy Graphenes is the weight the 1500mah is 208g compared to the Dronelab’s equivalent 159g.

Bonka Graphene

Bonka Graphene backs offer the best performance out there for those who are looking to push their limits of flying. Bonka have been on the scene for a while now, and their batteries have proven to be some of the best around. The new Graphene 2.0 are no exception, they claim a massive 80C constant and 160C burst, although we all really know C ratings mean absolutely nothing. Their weight is reasonable at 170g, but they are far from the lightest battery on our list. However their superior performance outweighs the added weight in our opinion and these are a must have if you intend to be the fastest at the field.

Zeee 4S 14.8V 1500mAh 100C RC Lipo battery

A relatively unknown player in the battery game the name Zeee doesn’t exaclty fill someone with confidence. However, we have found that these more than stand up to testing. There was little to no puffing after repeated flights and they also also come in lighter than many other FPV batteries in the same class. They are also relatively small and compact meaning that for racing they should fit into your tight build. If you enjoy Acro flying then the minimal voltage sag will significantly help you out. Tattu claim that these batteries are “more powerful than any graphene battery.” However numerous tests have shown that, despite still being insanely powerful, they are not more so.
