Why don t drones use lithium ion batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries typically have a lower discharge rate (C rating) than LiPo batteries. This means that they may not be able to meet the high current demands needed for aggressive, high-performance flight. Both overdischarge and overdischarge will damage lithium batteries in unmanned aerial vehicles or any other equipment. You can follow the precautions listed below to avoid overcharging.

The lithium-ion battery for drones is the battery that uses lithium metal or lithium alloys as positive materials and non-hydroelectrolytic electrolyte solutions. Compared to NiMH batteries, it has higher capacity, better stability, and recharge and discharge capacity. After years of development, all consumer-friendly lithium-ion drone batteries are now made of lithium polymer material. As for the shortcomings, we have also learned that lithium-ion batteries can easily lose control and explode when they are short-circuited or overheated.

According to press reports, drone batteries often catch fire and explode. That's why we recommend that users use original batteries, chargers and data cables to avoid short-circuiting drone lithium-ion batteries.
