What are Smart Batteries?

A true smart battery pairs cells with electronics that provide real-time monitoring and reporting of critical performance data. This data provides important information to your flight computer, allowing it to make decisions in flight, ensuring safe and reliable operation, and early notice of developing problems. It also communicates with the charging system to ensure safe charging and prevent catastrophic failures. Smart batteries can also ensure safe storage and shipping by de-energizing the outputs when not attached to a UAS or charger.

Accuracy

Provides accurate state of charge information and power warnings to your UAS so you know how much charge you have left. This lets you reduce the margin to fly longer missions or use a smaller battery.

Monitoring

Monitors cell temperatures, which is particularly important for charging. Charging batteries that are too hot or cold can destroy them quickly.

Efficient Storage

Automatic self-discharge during storage also dramatically increases the battery’s life.

Maintenance

Monitoring and reporting faults helps you stay safe and retire your batteries if they’ve been abused or are just wearing out.
