How to choose RC lipo battery?

With the development of participation in playing aeromodelling, hobbyist has paid more and more attention on the selection of the RC lipo battery. For the selection of the RC lipo battery, it carries on the explanation mainly from two aspects of battery’s voltage and capacity:

1. Voltage of battery

Its voltage should be the same or a bit higher than the voltage of electric motor.

2. Capacity of battery

Unit of the battery capacity is AH, and there is the larger capacity and the larger size under the same voltage. For example, the electric motor has the working current of 10A and the voltage of 12V, which is 10A*12V= 120W. If equipped with the 12V/10AH batteries, the electric motor can work for an hour. If the rated working current of the 120W/12V DC motor is about 10A, its battery capacity is 40Wh when it works as the maximum power of 120W for 20 minutes, and the capacity required for the battery pack is about 12V4Ah, and the equipped lithium battery is power-type battery.

Structure of lithium battery

Usually, lithium batteries have two common types of shape, including cylinder shape and square shape. It is used the helical coiling structure as the internal of battery, and made intervals between the positive and negative electrodes by a kind of polyethylene film isolation material with high intricacy and strong permeability. The positive electrode is the current collector composed of lithium cobalt oxide and aluminum foil, and the negative electrode is the current collector composed of graphitized carbon material and copper foil. Battery is filled with organic electrolyte solution, and installed with safety valve and PTC components, in order to protect the battery from damage in abnormal conditions and when the output is short-circuited.

Why is lithium battery so popular?

1. High voltage and light weight features of lithium battery

The average voltage of a single battery can reach 3.7V or 3.2V. If customer requires the battery with the qualified voltage, lithium battery is the best choice as it can be composed of a lithium battery pack easily and provide convenient and efficient access to improve the voltage of lithium battery.

2. Compared with other battery, lithium battery has higher capacity and density

Lipo battery has high energy storage density, at present, density of the common used battery can reach 450-620Wh/kg, which is 5-7 times higher than the lead-acid battery. In addition, pollution is one of the most important problems considered when people prefer to use lithium battery.

3. Large capacity and long life

The weight of a single lithium battery is about 5-6 times of the lead-acid battery. Although there are less differences in weight between the lithium battery and polymer lithium battery, people prefer to choose the lithium battery as its capacity and life.
The service life of a single lithium battery can be above 6 years and even 9 years if nothing goes wrong. The normal quantity of use is more than 1000 times, if there are no accidents, it can be used beyond 1500 times.

4. Low self-discharge and no memory effect

Lithium battery is equipped with protection plate during the production, which can make the lithium battery have an effect of over-charge and discharge. As lithium batteries have high power tolerance, lithium batteries used for electric vehicle can produce high-performance charge and discharge of 15-30C for the high-strength acceleration performance in starting of the electric vehicle.

Tattu 1800mAh 75C 4S RC lipo battery Testing

I was sent one of the new Tattu 1800mah 75C 4S batteries to do a bit of testing. I’ve been flying it for a week or so and I have spent some time gathering data. Here is what I’ve found so far.

To give a bit of background, I am a multirotor pilot, and am primarily interested in miniquads. That being said the testing I’ve done applies universally. These high C rated batteries are useful beyond the bounds of multirotors into the world of 3D flying, and high performance aircraft.

Physical Characteristics

As with the Gens ace 2200mah I reviewed last month, my first impressions of this RC lipo battery are very positive. Gens ace/Tattu seem to use the same build techniques in both their lower discharge and higher discharge batteries. It has the same aluminum support that covers the battery and adds additional protection to the top and bottom of the battery. After a bit more research I have found that this actually provides compression during high discharge and according to research can significantly extend the life of the battery. Again, where the high current lines enter the battery casing they are re-enforced with additional heat shrink. The balance leads also come out the opposite side of the casing rather than the same side as the high current lines. In addition this battery has a plastic cover that extends over the balance lead cables, preventing stress on the cables when plugging and unplugging the balance cable. I will point out that on some chargers this can prevent the balance leads from fitting properly. Unlike the 2200mah, this battery came with XT60 connectors, which means no soldering for me. Battery dimensions actually exactly the same as the 2200mah 2S battery, and are accurate to the product description on the sellers website. The wight is just over 200g and the physical size is 105mm x 35mm x 25.4mm. Because of the aluminum plates the size is very consistent.

Tattu 1800mAh 75C 4S1P lipo battery pack with XT60 plug

Brand: Tattu
Capacity: 1800mAh
Voltage: 14.8V
Discharge Rate: 75C
Max Burst Discharge Rate: 150C
Configuration: 4S1P
Size: 105mm*35mm*25.4mm
Connector Type: XT-60
Balancer Connector Type: JST-XHR


1. Stable automatic stacking technology enables single cell capacities of 1800mAh.
2. The most strict single cell capacity, voltage, resistance, discharge curve matching process.
3. Superior Japan and Korea Lithium Polymer raw materials.

Tattu batteries provide high quality, reliable power for LRC Freestyle V1(270-296), CX Pro Quadcopter(228), ortex, Super Mini H Quad Power Train, drone and FPV etc.


My initial impressions of these batteries both in build quality and performance are very positive. Because of the very high C rating, it is hard to get an accurate picture of whether or not this battery can full fill a 75C (135A) current load, but given very few people have a setup that can draw that type of constant load, that’s not something we can easily gauge. Since I haven’t found a reliable method for testing internal resistance It’s hard to get an objective measurement of true C rating. I will post an update as soon as I can test these on a more reliable tester. I can say up to 65A loads this battery performs excellently. I was also very impressed with how well it recovered from first time abuse.

The battery provides both solid performance and the extras in the build such as the reinforced cables and aluminum compression plates add up to a very nice battery. For those interested, the battery is available here:
