Battery discharge rate

5.08K viewsHardware


Does anybody know what the voltage you see left on your tentacle when you plug in the app means in relation to battery hours left?

e.g. if it reads 3.5v, what roughly does this mean? 20 hours left? 10?

Usually these batteries stay fairly high and then quickly drop off near the end of their cycle, so I am wondering how to interpret the volts as useable time left on the unit.


Yes, it’s frustrating isn’t it.  That’s why i’ve ended up making usb charging adapters, so i can charge or run various units via d-tap or 4 pol hirose. Like the wretched DR -70 which only takes AAs or a micro usb input. You could make an adapter like in pic.
