LiPo Batteries in the UK


(Julian Hancock) #1

Hi I am looking forward to purchasing BR2 but I have one problem.

That is purchasing the required batteries in the UK. Looking at UK websites the Lithium-ion Battery (14.8V, 18Ah) is quite a high specced battery. I can get 14.8V but I cannot get anywhere near the 18Ah.

Can any one point me in the right direction where I can buy these batteries in the UK please that also fit in the WTC.

Thanks

Julian

Is not an alternative to buy it from Blue Robotics?

They are not shipping to the UK at the moment.

Hi @julesh,

This is the battery that we recommend other than our own 18Ah battery: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/multistar-high-capacity-4s-10000mah-multi-rotor-lipo-pack.html

You may be able to get that shipped to Europe. We are looking to be able to ship to Europe via FedEx and also have stock at some of our European distributors soon.

Hi Rusty

Thanks for the reply. I will look at those. I am in the UK, do I still order my BR2 through this website?

Regards

Julian

Hi Julian
Just to let you know we can source the batteries for you here in the UK, there can be a wee delay in getting them but they are available in a number of capacities up to 22000mAh (though it’s getting a little large at 202 x 97 x 46mm)
See you at Ocean Business
thanks
Ian

Hi Ian

Good to hear from you. Life treating you well I hope. Thanks for that. I will go for batteries initially, however I quite like the idea of swapping out the umbilical and using topside power.

Regards

Julian
