Seahorse KontikiDrone 5 AH battery
This battery is for the REVO4 KontikiDrone only and is not for the Seahorse Electric Kontikis.
The Seahorse KontikiDrone Battery is a very high performance Lithium Polymer battery built to our own specifications. The LiPo battery is a 6S cell battery with a charged voltage of 25.2 volts. The battery has a very high discharge rate to ensure it does not heat up and fail under load. This is extremely important as fishing drones consistently work hard for a long (for a drone) period of time.
The KontikiDrone batteries will be shipped in storage mode and will need to be charged before flying.
LiPo batteries need to be managed correctly as they store a large amount of energy in a small volume. If the LiPo battery is not being used for a period of time - say a week or longer, it is recommended to store the LiPo battery with a partial charge known as a storage charge or storage mode. This is approximately half charge and by using storage mode, you will extend the life of your LiPo battery.
When you want to go flying, you will need to charge the LiPo batteries to Fully Charged. The Seahorse LiPo can be charged at 5 amps meaning it will take approximately 30 minutes to charge the battery from storage mode to fully charged. It is OK to leave the battery fully charged overnight or up to a week. If you leave them fully charged all the time you will shorten the life of your LiPo Batteries.
