Battery run time - Original Home Battery 11.1vUpdated a year ago

A fully charged 11.1v  Home Original Battery will last for approximately 10 minutes of motor run time. That's about Five 90 second play sessions (each time you bypass the auto shutdown counts as one session).

  • Always using a fire resistant container such as a battery charging bag to charge the LiPo battery.
  • IMPORTANT: charge to maximum capacity to assure proper balance of all cells inside the battery. 
  • If the battery is used in an unbalanced state - this will permanently damage the battery causing it to stop taking and/or holding a charge.
  • Note: you can stop charging before it reaches full and continue charging later - as long as you don't USE it until it has been fully charged.

Over discharging (using the battery past this timeframe) may permanently damage your LiPo battery.

We recommend stopping use after 10 minutes, or 5 sessions to recharge. 

SwiftPaws may begin to perform poorly as the voltage drops. Over discharging the battery will affect its life expectancy, and may permanently damage it.

If you purchase an 11.1v compatible battery elsewhere, make sure you to use the charger that is recommended for that battery.

As your battery ages, you might see a decline in performance. Your battery will need to be replaced once it reaches 80% of it's original capacity.

CAUTION: The battery should always be allowed to come to room-temperature before charging. Charging a hot or cold battery might delay charging or damage the battery. For best results, charge the battery at temperatures between 50º and 80ºF (10º-30ºC).

SwiftPaws is not responsible for any direct, indirect, special, or consequential damages and personal injuries, including that to life, and health, resulting from the customer’s application and use of batteries sold by SwiftPaws.com.
