Original Battery Voltages to Know

Minimum, Maximum, Storage, & Replacement Voltages for the Home Original battery is a 3S 11.1v LiPo battery

  • 12v - Maximum capacity voltage (this number slowly declines over time - this is normal)
  • 9v - Minimum voltage - the voltage should not drop below this.
  • 11.1v is the nominal voltage (also called "storage voltage" & applies to any duration of time beyond 3 days)
  • 10.08v - Minimum capacity - Once the maximum capacity declines to 80% the battery has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced.

Using the battery until it drains below 9.6 volts will shorten its life expectancy and may even permanently damage the battery causing it to fail to charge, fail to hold a charge, or even swell - never use a damaged or swollen battery. Keep it away from anything flammable and recycle it as soon as possible.

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).
