I am working on a project involving controlling two dc motors via a dual motor controller and an arduino uno board using a thumbstick as an input. I am planning on using a battery to power the project and I was thinking of using a Lipo battery. I have not used Lipo batteries before and I have read that the batteries need to be balanced to avoid battery damage in the long term. I was hoping to use a usb c recharge point for the project and could not see any boards that had any balancing capability.
I was looking at the
Lipo Charger-Type C
But given that I’ve read that lipo batteries can catch fire, I’m a bit wary that I need to treat them with due care.
Could you recommend a charging board for an 11.1V lipo battery?And let me know what you know about lipo battery balancing and what would be needed to integrate this into my project for charging of an onboard battery.
