Floureon Li-Po batteries - Review

Floureon Li-Po batteries - Review

I have been using various Floureon Li-Po Batteries for over two years now and had over 19 of them on 5 different RC aircraft, Drones, and FPV wings. After all, they really stand out in one thing... Price. For someone with a limited budget like myself, those were quite attractive. Especially as a beginner I didn't feel like spending tons of money on something that I would likely destroy on the first flight was a good idea.

My observations? Floureon Li-Po batteries are inconsistent in quality!

Inconsistent/high IR on one or multiple cells: In the multiple batteries the internal resistance of one cell was varying from the others. So in the effect of voltage drop on that sell would be significantly higher under the load.

High voltage drop under load: This has a lot to do with the low C rating of those batteries, as Floureon mainly offers 30C-45C Li-Po packs. This fact makes batteries hard to use on multi-rotors / drones as higher current draw causes the battery to sag below the minimum voltage on single or all cells of the pack.

Over-rated capacity: The batteries were often discharging far, far fewer cycles then rated on the label. In the case of the affected pieces, I have been only able to pool around 700/800mah out of 2200mah battery.

Are those worth their price?

I have mixed feelings about this. Those days £12 for a battery that can be useless out of the box seems like wasting money and ruining the experience. There are semi-good Li-Po batteries out there that will give you an awesome flying experience without worrying about the mixed quality.

At the end of the day, it is only about your own decision, but I wouldn’t recommend investing in Floureon…

It is very important to know what is your opinion.
