Why are Lithium Batteries for Fishing Drone So Expensive?

1. The present situation of lithium batteries for fishing drones

Drones used to sound pretty high-end in people's minds, but with the development of science and technology, drones are now gradually appearing in our lives. In addition to the common plant protection drones, fish drones are also beginning to be active in people's vision. But there is an obvious problem with any drone: The flight time is limited, which affected by the lithium battery.


At present, fish drone mainly uses polymer lithium batteries with a flexible package. For different reasons in terms of lithium battery development technology, the endurance time of most fish drones is less than 45 minutes. As the fish drone itself is designed to be very light in weight, it cannot be equipped with heavy lithium batteries with high capacity. The lithium batteries of fish drones with average quality must be replaced after 10 to 20 minutes' flight, which is the biggest disadvantage of drones and largely limits the development of the fish drone industry. If this key problem can be solved, it will break the research bottleneck on the lithium battery technology of drones.


Although the lithium battery technology for drones is still in a bottleneck, it is still very expensive. For normal fish casting drone enthusiasts, it does cost a lot of money to prepare several high-priced lithium batteries and a fishing drone. 


2. Specific reasons for the high price of lithium batteries for fishing drones

(1) The fish drones (Poseidon 480 Drone) adopt small and light polymer lithium batteries, which are much more expensive because the requirements of batteries for drones are more stringent than those of some smart digital products.


(2) The performance requirements for polymer lithium batteries are very high. The fish drone has to overcome its own gravity when it gets airborne, and it also has a high requirement on the capacity of lithium battery, but the larger the capacity, the bigger and heavier the lithium battery becomes.


(3) Fish drone lithium battery is a charging rate battery, and the so-called charging rate battery means that it is able to release several-fold current instantaneously. Drones have a particularly high requirement for battery power. When you quickly increase the throttle from the hovering state to the top speed, the battery power will increase rapidly. Judging from the performance, only a polymer lithium battery (high rate battery) can meet the requirements of drones, and ordinary batteries like 18650 battery can not be used even if it has the ability of rate discharge, because its volume and gravity are far beyond the load range of fish drones.


(4) The production technology cost of high-rate polymer lithium battery is much higher than that of the ordinary battery. The electrode materials and manufacturing processes used are also different and demanding.


While the 4.3V high voltage design can make the flying fishing drone use longer and cycle more. Anglers do not need to change batteries frequently, which can make the fishing experience even better.


In conclusion, you can probably understand why the fish drone lithium battery is so expensive. And if you try the fish drone with lithium battery DF-B-7300 of IDEA-FLY, you may find it the optimal choice at a reasonable price.
