The rise of the rechargeable battery market has been nothing short of phenomenal over the past decade or so and there has never been more to choose from. The technology that has gone into developing these ultra-powerful batteries has seen their popularity soar amongst radio controlled modellers. However, once you have chosen the perfect batteries, you need to know how to look after them properly to get the best out of them. So, in this blog we are going to take a look at how to best take care of your model batteries.
The biggest and most important thing by far is getting yourself a good battery charger. We really can’t stress how important this is to get the most out of your model batteries whatever type you are using. At Vapextech, we have a great range to choose from that charge Lipo batteries, Airsoft batteries as well as conventional AA AAA C D PP3 versions. And, most of our chargers are computerised and tell you in a percentage how close they are to being done.
With the charger sorted, you can concentrate on using your model batteries appropriately. Try and make sure not to overcharge your batteries or let them run completely flat as this can lessen the lifespan. Also, make sure they are not subjected to any extreme heats as most will react badly to temperatures greater than 30°c or less than -30°c. You should only ever use a charger designed to take your particular kind of battery and never short-out a battery.
By following these guidelines, you should get the most consistent and responsive performance out of your radio controlled devices.
