Now available, 1500 mAh High Performance Battery

Post by blorincz » 13 Feb 2013, 17:35

I spent the past weekend testing some new batteries and I am happy to report the results are positive. I only have a limited supply at the moment, but if I hear customers are happy with them I will plan on ordering more. I think these GiFi Power Super Duty 1500 mAh batteries are the perfect balance of performance and price for your AR.Drone 2.0.

Here are the results of my testing:
I tested 3 different batteries. Each battery was fully charged, drained, then fully charged again. Flight testing was completed indoors with the outdoor hull, on a stock drone with only the bearing upgrade. I was using an iPad mini and the AR Free Flight app. Testing consisted of hovering the drone over a target for the entire length of the battery until the drone auto-landed. Being indoors turbulence would build up every minute or two so some maneuvering was necessary to keep the drone in place.

Battery 1: 15 minutes, 2 seconds (15:02)
Battery 2: 14 minutes, 51 seconds (14:51)
Battery 3: 15 minutes, 8 seconds (15:08)

I was hoping I would crack 15 minutes with these batteries and I hit it right on the nose. Average flight time for the 3 batteries was 15:00.33.

Below are the specs on the battery and a link to purchase them. I am offering a $2 off coupon (limit 2 batteries) for AR Drone Flyers members. Use coupon code "BATTERY" when ordering. Unfortunately, due to recent changes with international shipping regulations for lithium batteries, I can only ship these batteries to customers in the U.S. and Canada. Canadian customers limit 2 batteries per package and you must select the UPS Standard shipping option, if a battery is included in your order.

If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is. Thanks DBS!

All batteries are classed as a consumable item thus do not have a warranty as such. Fair play if its faulty upon receipt but here in the UK you're stuffed after 28 days.

LOL. The cost of shipping to Canada thru UPS Standard is more than the price of 2 Batteries.

Yes, it's unfortunate. Recent changes in shipping regulations internationally classify these batteries as dangerous goods, which significantly increases the shipping cost.
