Thunder Power Adrenaline FPV Goggle LiPo Battery

Thunder Power Adrenaline FPV Goggle LiPo Battery

So you just got your brand new Fat Shark FPV goggles and you’re perplexed about the included battery. It has what looks like a balance tap but you can’t balance it. The balance connector on Fat Shark goggles is only for connecting to the fan on the goggles. The original battery has a built-in balancing circuit so charging is done through the power plug with the included charger adapter. Some lower-end chargers will not be able to charge on 2S without a balance tap being connected.

Another downfall of the original Fat Shark goggle battery is its limited charging capacity. One of many scenarios: You’ve charged up all your flight batteries and you’re headed out the door to go fly but suddenly realized your FPV goggle battery is low. Now you have to sit and wait for the battery to charge, and it doesn’t matter if it’s the 1000mAh battery or the 1800mAh battery, you’re going to be waiting a while.

One solution to increase FPV goggle time is to switch out the original battery or add an additional battery to your arsenal. You can add Fat Shark’s 18650 Li-Ion Cell Battery Case along with high capacity Li-Ion batteries, or an even better solution is to add an aftermarket LiPo battery with the correct power plug and connectors.

Thunder Power to the rescue! Thunder Power now offers its mighty Adrenaline series LiPo battery for Fat Shark FPV goggles in 2S 2000mAh and 2S 4000mAh capacities with the proper power plug, XT60 charge connector and YES, a working balance tap! Both Thunder Power Adrenaline FPV goggle LiPos can be charged at up to 2C so you don’t have to sit around waiting for a measly 1.0 or 1.8 Amp charge cycle.

Fit and Finish
The Thunder Power Adrenaline FPV Goggle LiPo Battery really didn’t fit any different than the original Fat Shark plastic case battery. If anything, the Thunder Power battery doesn’t press up against your head as much as the thicker Fat Shark hard case battery. One thing you can do with the Thunder Power battery that you can’t really do with the Fat Shark battery or battery cell case is move it up in the strap where the battery is on top or above your ear. So if the original Fat Shark hard case battery bothers your ear, this is a great option! For us it didn’t to matter where the Thunder Power battery sat in the strap, perhaps because it’s half the thickness of the Fat Shark hard case battery.

Thunder Power’s smaller Adrenaline 2000mAh FPV Goggle LiPo Battery lasted longer than Fat Shark’s larger 1800mAh hard case battery when being used with Spektrum Focal V2 diversity receiver goggles. Thunder Power’s FPV goggle LiPos don’t have a power meter built-in like the original Fat Shark battery but that wasn’t a problem, as we never had the need to check it. Think about how long LiPo batteries last in transmitters!
