Quadcopter Reference

This is a general quick reference page:


  • 1C charge is mAh / 1000 (Safest charge rate 1C, or 1 x capacity of battery in Amps)
  • Store at 3.8v per cell
  • Energy stored (Watt-hour, wh) = voltage x capacity

Storage Voltage Chart

Number of Cells Storage Voltage
1s 3.8v
2s 7.6v
3s 11.4v
4s 15.2v
5s 19.0v
6s 22.8v

This table is calculated for 4.2v LiPos, for LiHV using 3.8v is still a safe baseline for storage voltage.
