High Voltage Lipoly batteries (LiHV) offer a significant increase in power density whilst not incurring a weight penalty. This means longer flight times flight times or the ability to carry heavier payloads
Multistar LiHV high capacity batteries are the result of extensive testing and development with one goal in mind...increasing flight times for your multi-rotor aircraft without the penalty of added weight.
We have achieved our goal by drastically increasing the battery capacity (mAh) while lowering the discharge rate. This results in a battery which is still capable of providing sufficient current (Amps) while offering much higher capacity when compared to a standard 20C+ LiPoly battery of the same weight.
What this all means is that Multistar batteries are able to provide flight times much longer than standard LiPoly battery packs without adding any weight to your multi-rotor model, making them absolutely ideal for use with aerial video and FPV multi-rotor aircraft.
LiHV stands for “High Voltage Lithium Polymer”. These batteries have been around for years and can be safely charged to 4.35V, higher than the typical voltage of Lipos.
The advantages of LiHV batteries are the higher power and longer running times. LiHV batteries can be charged to 4.35V per cell, higher than normal LiPo batteries which sit at 4.20V. For example, a 4S LiHV pack charged at 4.35V would give you 17.4V. Whereas a Lipo battery on the same charge would only get 16.8V. LiHV batteries also have a lower internal resistance and are less prone to "puffing".
