Choosing Best Battery for 250 Quadcopter

Choosing Best Battery for 250 Quadcopter

Tattu R-Line 1550

Tattu is one of the top LiPo battery manufacturers from China around in terms of performance and quality in general. Most people think that these batteries perform well, especially the R-LINE 95C rated packs.

Tattu’s cell chemistry is specially developed for UAV demands like Energy/IR/Safety.

Some pilots may be said these batteries are a bit more expensive than other brands, but they are worth paying a bit more for, especially if you are carrying expensive equipment on your quadcopter. They come in almost all variations and last pretty long.

The Tattu R-Line 1550 come in at a close second for the best lipo batteries of this year. The brilliant thing about these batteries is 
that they are suited to all types of pilots. If you are just a casual hobbyist, then these batteries will last you significantly longer than standard LiPos. They are also relatively small and compact meaning that for racing they should fit into your tight build. If you enjoy Acro flying then the minimal voltage sag will significantly help you out. Tattu claims that these batteries are “more powerful than any graphene battery.” However numerous tests have shown that, despite still being insanely powerful, they are not more so. Overall, these batteries have a high capacity and lower internal resistance/landing temperature meaning that regardless of what type of pilot you are, the Tattu R-Line 1550 will suit your flying type

Tattu R-Line 4S 1300mAh 95C

The Tattu R-Line 4S 1300mAh 95C is the second best LiPo battery on this list. Tattu are well known for producing high-quality LiPos. These LiPos have a quick recharge time and a 150 minimal long cycle life. These have impressive run times and are pretty darn powerful. However, they have not sacrificed power for fly time. On my 220mm frame, light to medium throttle punching has about 9 minutes of flight time whereas medium to high throttle is around 6 to 8 minutes. We strongly recommend these batteries to any racers out there.

Turnigy Graphene 4S 1300mah 65C

The Turnigy Graphene 4S 1300mah 65C is, in our opinion, one of the best LiPo battery on the market for your mini quad. The battery itself is graphene which means that it has outstanding performance, especially when you consider the price (just $33). Now obviously there are less expensive 4s LiPos on the market, but because the Turnigy 4S 1300mah 65C are graphene batteries, it will be able to last at least three times longer (non-graphene batteries last around 300 cycles whereas the Turnigy Graphene 4S 1300mah 65C will last around 1000 cycles.) You certainly get more bang for your buck! The battery itself comes in a really nice and fancy magnetic padded case. It is slightly wider and shorter than the standard 4s lipo, but this shouldn’t be a problem and it will fit into most frames. The higher C rating on the battery means that you will be able to accelerate your quad at a much faster rate in comparison to regular lipos. The voltage can also hold for much longer and sustain more current than your regular LiPo. Ultimately, for the price and performance, the Turnigy Graphene 4S 1300mah 65C have to be the best LiPos on the market right now.

Ovonic 1550mAh 4S 100C

Ovonic 1550mAh 4S 100C also is one of the top lipo battery on the market, and moreover, it came with a great price, most of time under the $20, and at the ovonicshop(AU) is about AUD $26. This battery with a great punch performance and won't cost you too much. Just over 5 min. Of flight time on my 6" butter quad.
