Double the battery life of your vario for those long XCs!!!

Gain maximum flying hours with double battery kit for SkyDrop. Turn your vario into powerful machine for long flight adventures.

Kit contains: double battery and enlarged rear cover. 
Battery type: Li-Poly single cell 1800 mAh (USB rechargeable)
Battery life:
  • only audio mode 26h
  • audio + altitude logger, without GPS 24h
  • audio + bluetooth 20h
  • audio + GPS logger 18h
  • audio + GPS logger + bluetooth 15h

How to exchange battery? Disassemble SkyDrop and remove battery by disconnecting the connector by nail, not by pulling the cable. Battery is glued to PCB by very strong adhesive, so it cannot be pulled out, because it will (for sure!) destroy the device. Instead of pulling, battery must be rotated around Z axis (normal to PCB). Connect double battery to PCB, than place battery into enlarged rear cover (same way as old battery) and put SkyDrop back together. Video coming soon.
