High Voltage LiPo (Lithium Polymer), could be written as LiHV. It’s similar to LiPo battery but allows you to charge it up to 4.35V per cell safely, and regular lipo could be charged up to 4.2v only. And these are some features:
- With a fully charged high voltage lipoi battery, voltage is higher than normal LiPo’s (on a 4S, HVLi is 17.4V, LiPo is 16.8V), therefore your motors will run harder at higher RPM, and your quad can fly faster theoretically
- Secondly, LiHV can store more energy than LiPo per weight, so theoretically (again) you get longer flight time. Hyperion (the company that makes these HVLi batteries I am testing) states there is a 10% increase in capacity than standard LiPo’s of the same size and weight
- Lastly, good quality high voltage lipo has lower voltage sag on high throttle.
