DJI Phantom “Smart” lipo battery – intro, pros & cons, safety and storage tips

August 13, 2014

For prospective/new pilots – what makes the DJI Smart lipo battery smart?! A quick look at some features, the pros and cons and some storage and safety advice.

If you’re thinking of buying a Vision+, a Vision or a Phantom 2 they all use this proprietary lithium polymer (lipo) battery, and there’s some things you might want to think about if you think you might want extra batteries for your aircraft. If you’ve already got one (or a few) then it’s probably nothing new in here for you, but it’s always worth reiterating the safety points.

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
