SparkFun will be closed on Monday, May 30th, for Memorial Day. We will resume normal business hours at 9am (MT) on Tuesday, May 31st. Orders placed after 2pm (MT) on Friday May 27th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 31st. From all of us at SparkFun, we wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
This high discharge LiPo is a great way to power any R/C, robotic, or portable project. This is an excellent choice for anything that requires a small battery with a lot of punch. The voltage is low enough not to tax your regulating circuits, and the discharge rate is high enough to accommodate a lot of electronics and a few small motors.
The battery has two cells and outputs 7.4V storing 1000mAh of charge. Because this is a dual cell battery pack, a special charger is needed. This battery is not compatible with single cell chargers. A compatible charger is listed below.
Note: This battery is not available to ship to Alaska or Hawaii, or through any express services (2-day, overnight), or internationally. This is temporary! Check out our blog post for more information. Additionally orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
Note: Care should be taken not to short circuit or overtax these batteries because they don't have any built-in protection circuit.
Note: This item is non-returnable. If this item arrives damaged or is not functioning properly, please do not hesitate to contact us to see if further actions may be taken.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

The price is a little high, My friend has a Bebop drone from parrot, and I bought three of these to rig up a 'three cell (actually six cells)' battery that has a whopping 3000mah capacity. it worked of course, and everything is smooth, but i had to pay 2 shipping costs because you can only but two at a time.
Hi there! Sorry about the inconvenience with having to ship them two at a time. The agency that governs shipping batteries in the air (IATA) has a list of how many can go into one package depending on how many watt hours it is. We're working on ways to be able to ship more of them in the air at one time, so please hang in there with us! :)
I'm using this to power an arm wearable that uses gesture control to control a kinetic sculpture. So far this battery works well, though it doesn't last as long as I'd hoped. I have a nice Tenergy charger but for some reason the balancer extension is missing. As of now I'm recharging the battery through the Dean's connector without also connecting to a balancing board. I hope this setup lasts for at least a little while.
