How long does it take to charge the (11.1v) battery?Updated 6 months ago

The battery that ships with the Home original is a 3S 11.1v 1550 mAh battery - it should take about an hour to charge. The larger the mAh number, the longer it will take to charge.

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 may interrupt charging before it reaches full and continue charging later - as long as you don't USE it until it has been fully charged. 

Remove the battery from the charger once it has reached a full charge.

If the battery is swollen, do not attempt to use or charge the battery. It is damaged and cannot be restored. Dispose of it responsibly. 

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).
