Safety Measures and Emergency Handling for Agricultural Drone Battery Maintenance


As the autumn farming season approaches, agricultural drones are taking to the skies to assist in crop management tasks. These drones rely on powerful batteries to perform their duties efficiently and safely. However, proper maintenance and handling of these batteries are crucial to ensure their longevity and safety during operation.

CTECHi, a leading provider of agricultural drone batteries with 19 years of experience, offers valuable insights into maintaining and caring for these intelligent batteries. Here are some essential tips for agricultural drone battery maintenance and emergency handling:

  1. Avoid Over-Discharging: It's important to use intelligent batteries within their recommended voltage range to avoid over-discharging, which can damage the battery or even cause a drone malfunction. To prolong battery life, avoid deep discharges during normal operations.

  2. Handle with Care: Handle batteries with care to prevent physical damage that could compromise their safety. Ensure batteries are securely fastened to the drone to prevent them from dislodging during dynamic flight maneuvers or crashes.

  3. Optimal Charging Conditions: Avoid charging batteries in extreme temperatures, as this can affect performance and longevity. Store batteries in a cool, dry environment, ideally between 10-25°C, and avoid exposure to direct sunlight or heat sources during charging.

  4. Separate from Chemicals: Keep batteries away from agricultural chemicals to prevent corrosion and damage. After completing operations, wipe down batteries to remove any residue and store them separately from chemicals to minimize the risk of corrosion.

  5. Regular Inspection: Inspect batteries regularly for signs of damage, deformation, corrosion, or leakage. Clean battery surfaces and connectors after each use to remove any residue. Ensure batteries have cooled to below 40°C before charging to optimize charging efficiency and safety.

  6. Emergency Handling: In the event of a battery fire during charging, immediately disconnect the charging system and remove the burning battery using appropriate safety gear. Smother the fire with a fireproof blanket or sand to extinguish it and prevent further damage.

Remember to dispose of depleted batteries safely by soaking them in saltwater for at least 72 hours to fully discharge them before drying and disposal.

By following these maintenance and handling guidelines, agricultural drone operators can ensure the safe and efficient operation of their batteries, minimizing the risk of accidents and prolonging battery life.
