There are a lot of battery ideas being thrown around and I wanted to consolidate them into a form that’s easy to compare and add to. Here is the spreadsheet of all of the batteries we’re considering for the OpenPPG. This will be updated as more batteries are proposed by this community.
If you want to add a battery to this list, reply in this thread with a link and tag me so I’m notified. If you want to add to or edit this list Send me a PM on here with your email and I would be happy to grant edit access to anyone who wants to add batteries to the list. I won’t respond to edit requests in Google Docs because I don’t want to grant access beyond this community.
- I’m only adding batteries that have already reached the consumer market.
- I’m only considering packs complete with housing and wiring. This forum is not a suitable place for designing custom battery packs; we already have too many risks to consider as it is. Of course you’re welcome to do so on your own, but we should be mindful that some in this community have very little experience with LiPos.
- The flight time of course will be different for every person and every flight, but the figures right now seem to match up with every video Paul and the core team have released.
My takeaway so far: Paul’s done his homework on batteries, as of this posting the Bonkas remain the king. Here’s a sample of the comparisons so far.
