SparkFun will be closing early at 3:30 Friday 5/27 and remain closed Monday for Memorial Day (5/30). Orders placed after 2pm MT on Friday (5/27) will process and ship out on Tuesday (5/31).
Description: 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: Due to the requirements of shipping these batteries, only two batteries can be shipped together at one time and 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.

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.
