Drone pro extended battery

Recommended Posts

Hi All 

Anyone with info regarding how to get hold of the extended battery pack for drone pro , have looked at US sites and not sure if they export to UK . Have tried night vision UK but they are usually not in stock and don't answer emails . 

Thanks  Richie

Don't bother with it - it's overpriced and virtually unobtainable.

Buy a battery holder that takes 6 x AA batteries.  Fit 5 batteries and link out the unused space.

Fit a standard 5.5x2.1mm plug that will connect to the cable supplied with the Drone Pro and you're good to go.

Some info here http://www.nightvisionforumuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17282&p=140925&hilit=Drone+Pro+battery#p140925

 

Cheers

Thanks very much  for the replies , got some great ideas for designing a small battery box /regulator for the drone .goin to be lots cheaper than the armasight and can turn the volts down to 6v so well safe even with full charged batteries  .cheers phoenix for the ebay part links .

Just went into maplins yesterday and purchased the bits to do just that, not sure how extra run time I will get with 5 X AA 2500 mAh eneloop pro batteries. If not enough I will replace the batteries with  one of those Ansman battery packs with a suitable voltage regulator ( Either the 7.4 or 11v version .)

Wanted to keep the weight down and a 6 cell AA and the pack  is easily changed in a few seconds so will run with the AA's first for a while first.
