Turnigy graphene review: can it increase flight time?

Why are so many people looking forward to it and can Turnigy graphene lipo battery really can increase flight time for quadcopter? Today, I make a article about Turnigy graphene review for helping you to know what's the graphene battery and its performance.

What is the graphene lipo battery?

Graphene batteries is Newly developed a kind of new energy battery, which the use of lithium ion in graphene quickly a large number of shuttle between the surface and the electrode movement features.

There are at less 3 advantages of the graphene lipo battery as below:

  • High capacity energy storage
  • Shorten charging times
  • Longer cycle
  • Less weight
  • More cheaper

Turnigy graphene review 1300mah


As above image you see, Typically I see the end temperature around 130F to 140F. Again, the Turnigy graphene pack performed much better than a standard LiPo. After more than 80% discharge at 27A it was barely warm at 108.5F! 


Can turnigy graphene increase flight time for quadcopter? Yes, but not exactly. In fact, according to our survey, graphene material just assisted as additives to increase the performance of lipo battery. So far, they are all more or less good for increasing the performance.

Gradually along with the mass production and large size problem, the industrialization application of graphene is speeding up, based on the existing research results, the commercial application of the first field would be on a mobile device, aerospace, new energy battery and drone field.

Now, there are many brands of graphene battery in the market such as Turnigy, Arris, Grazepony etc. Which one would you like to purchase? Please leave your messages on here, if you have any questions about the graphene battery.

Graphene has great potential for improving LiPo batteries, but it is still used more as hype than realizing it's true value.
Since graphene can simply be used as an any amount additive with conventional LiPo batteries, it is impossible at this point to know what you are actually getting and I expect less graphene rather than more.

Still it is impressive you were able to show such improvements as you did.

Eventually an actual specification for percent grapheneness will come about that will make it better possible to determine what you are actually getting.

Good first pass at showing that there does seem to be some good there even at this early stage.

Best regards,

As an added bonus, the Turnigy ones come in a faux velvet bag and inside a padded box that has little embedded magnets to keep it closed.

As far as I know, graphene has never been produced in commercial quantities except in the minds of startup founders of 4 years ago.  They made batteries cooler by making them heavier.

Yes, you are right! I look forward to seeing it come true.
