Spring Farming Season Brings Focus on Drone Battery Usage and Charging Precautions


As March unfolds and ushers in the warmth of spring, agricultural activities are in full swing across the country. Farmers can be seen diligently preparing their fields for planting, utilizing a blend of traditional tools and modern technologies to ensure a bountiful harvest for the year.

In this season of agricultural renewal, the hum of drones and farm machinery reverberates across the rural landscape, composing a symphony of productivity. Among the essential components powering these agricultural drones are the sophisticated battery systems, which play a crucial role in providing the necessary energy for aerial operations.

CTECHI, a leading manufacturer specializing in drone battery systems, has been particularly busy since the onset of spring, fulfilling orders from various regions across the nation. With production facilities bustling with activity, CTECHI is ensuring that its range of intelligent drone batteries and chargers are packaged and dispatched promptly, empowering agricultural drones to soar into the skies with formidable power.

To shed light on the importance of proper drone battery usage, CTECHI interviewed its production engineers to outline some key considerations for drone battery usage:

  1. Ensure Full Charge: Drones must operate with fully charged batteries, with voltage levels exceeding 32.2V during operations to prevent premature battery failure due to over-discharge.

  2. Correct Charging Procedures: Use dedicated chargers designed for lithium batteries, adhering to specified charging currents and parameters to maintain battery health and longevity.

  3. Avoid Prolonged Storage: Fully charged lithium batteries should not be stored for more than 72 hours without use. If storage exceeds this timeframe, discharge the battery to approximately 3.8V using a charger or through controlled flight operations.

  4. Periodic Maintenance: Conduct a full charge and discharge cycle for stored batteries every month to preserve battery activity and performance.

  5. Monitor Individual Cell Performance: Any significant decrease in capacity in one cell can affect the overall effectiveness of the battery pack, necessitating replacement or repair.

  6. Inspect Connector Integrity: Regularly check battery connectors for signs of wear or damage to prevent electrical issues during flight operations.

  7. Address Overheating or Damage: Cease flight operations immediately if battery wires or connectors exhibit signs of overheating or damage, and conduct thorough inspections and repairs before resuming operations.

  8. Optimal Storage Conditions: Store lithium batteries in a clean, dry, and well-ventilated environment with temperatures ranging from -5°C to +35°C and humidity below 75%. Avoid exposure to corrosive substances, flames, or heat sources, and maintain battery charge levels between 30% and 50% during storage. Discharge temperatures should remain within the range of -20°C to +60°C during operation.

  9. Safety Precautions: In case of battery leakage, swelling, or damage to individual cells, cease drone operations immediately and seek professional assistance for inspection and resolution.

CTECHI emphasizes the importance of adhering to these guidelines to ensure the safe and efficient operation of drone battery systems during agricultural activities. By prioritizing battery health and maintenance, farmers can maximize the productivity and longevity of their aerial farming operations.
