Lithium Polymer batteries are a sort of battery currently utilized in numerous consumer gadgets. They have been picking up in fame in the radio control industry throughout the most recent couple of years, and are currently the most well-known decision for anybody searching for long run occasions and high power.
LiPo batteries offer a wide exhibit of advantages, however, every client must choose if the advantages exceed the downsides. There is nothing to fear from LiPo batteries, as you follow the principles and treat the batteries with the regard they merit.
Most of the times it happens that people neglect some of the principles and rules for the utilization of LiPo batteries, which alternatively lead the batteries to offer bad performance and low reliability as any person may anticipate from them. So, here we are going to tell you about some of the aspects that have to be taken as conclusive.
How much do you know about LiPo battery voltage?
A LiPo cell has an ostensible voltage of 3.7V. For the 14.8V battery over, that implies that there are four cells in an arrangement which means the voltage gets included. This is some of the time why you will hear individuals talk around a "4S" battery pack. It implies that there are 4 cells in Series, so a four-cell pack is 14.8V and a three-cell pack is 11.1V, etc.
The voltage of a LiPo battery pack is basically going to decide how quickly your vehicle will go. Voltage straightforwardly impacts the RPM of the electric engine. So in the event that you have a brushless engine 3,500kV rating, that engine will turn 3,500 RPM for each volt. On a 2S LiPo battery, that engine will turn around 25,900 RPM you apply to it and on a 3S, it will turn an incredible 38,850 RPM. So the more voltage you have, the quicker you will go.
When you select LiPo battery, you have to know the RC model of your engine, Voltage affects the engine, and engine impacts the speed. The higher voltage is the higher power of the engine which can be concluded by the equation, P=U*I.
The voltage impacts the intensity of the engine of the battery, and the power affects the RPM of the engine, that implies speed. So, in some hustling, pilots need high voltage batteries to address the issues of their RC model to get a high burst.
Do you use a LiPo battery voltage tester?
It's essential to test your battery on a regular basis, not exactly when it's beginning to show its weaknesses. Proactively testing it two times every year will help lessen your odds of failures.
Completely energized batteries should gauge at 12.6 volts or above. At the point when the motor is running, this estimation ought to be 13.7 to 14.7 volts. In the event that you do not have a multi-meter to reveal to you the voltage of your battery, you can complete a trial of your electrical system by starting the device. In the event that the device is not functioning properly, it demonstrates that it is running off the battery and that practically zero charges are being created by the alternator. On the off chance that the device starts functioning but not in the way as you expected, it implies the alternator is delivering some current, yet may not be creating enough out of gear to keep the battery appropriately charged. On the off chance that the device is functioning extra-ordinarily, then your charging system is working perfectly. On the off chance that you've been encountering issues with your battery system, then you should check whether the battery is holding a charge, or if something on the device is releasing it.
To breeze through a simple test, the battery must keep up 9.6 volts at 15 seconds when tried at a one-a large portion of the CCA rating. This test must be finished with a genuine burden and not one of the hand-held analyst that works off a conductance calculation. The test must be kept running with the battery in a high condition of charge so that it can offer genuine results for further manipulation.
How to protect LiPo battery voltage
To protect LiPo battery voltage, you have to connect every one of the links on the battery side of things. Attach the balance adaptor into the charger, and the balance of your battery leads into the proper slot on the balance adaptor. At that point connect the charger's charge plug into the discharge plug of your battery. Depending upon your charger and its embellishments it might connect into your battery various ways.
When everything is connected, feel free to begin balance charging your LiPo. It will check the battery's cells and requests to confirm your settings before it begins charging. It will follow a 2-section process, utilizing the steady current procedure first and then the consistent voltage strategy. During the steady current procedure, the charger increase to its predefined amperage yield and keeps that amperage consistent as cell voltage rises. At the point when the phones hit a specific edge, the charger changes over to steady voltage. During this procedure, the charger differs current yield to keep the battery at a similar voltage. Adjusting happens in this piece of the charging procedure. As the charger nears finish, current drops off fundamentally until the battery is completely energized at 4.20V per cell.
While your LiPo is charging, keep an eye out for temperatures. An appropriately working LiPo should not surpass 90-100 degrees F while charging. On the off chance that it seems to increase the temperature than that which you can feel with your hand, utilizing an IR thermometer or read it with the temp sensor for the charger, then immediately quit charging right away, otherwise, there can be severe damage to the battery.
Well, above has described some of the important aspects of LiPo batteries. Consider all of these aspects and make sure to utilize them in a better way so that it can offer better performance for a long time duration.
