If you have Head-play or Fatshark FPV goggles, but looking for best Fatshark battery for long flight sessions, you are come to the right place. Here will tell you how to choose high capacity fpv goggles battery and how to charge fatshark battery (Including Fatshark Dominator V3 HD3 ATTITUDE V3 V4 battery etc.)
Things need to consider when choosing fatshark goggle battery?
As we know, goggle is wear on our head, more weight is mean that you will feel very tired when you are racing. Don’t let that stop you from flying your best. Therefore, choose the battery as lighter as possible.
FPV racing emphasis on speed, weight is one important factor. Not only that, But in my experience, fatshark goggle battery is equal importance for the whole.
Finding the right goggle battery, you will have more fun within your flying 10-15 mins.
2. Usage times
You maybe found that most of goggle batteries capacity between 1000mAh and 2500mAh, more capacity more usage times. Though it’s only 10-15mins for one FPV event racing, in fact, before the racing you should need more time to test your FPV, and then left enough power to your goggle for the event.
Generally, you should purchase high capacity battery to keep flying your drone that continue to find fulfilling.
Everyone wish get the best goggle battery with cheaper price, but “A penny goods” is the everlasting truth, one of the important reasons for the owners to buy a fake, is blindly cheap. Therefore, before you purchasing battery, make sure that you choose the right brand. I think you will always be attracted to nice product and nice brands, such as Crazepony, Hyperion, Hyperion, Hyperion, Tattu etc.

How to charge fatshark battery?
Yes, many pilots face to this question that can not charge if connect the battery balance lead to balance charger.
Why? That’s because it’s not a true balance lead. The Fatshark goggles have an internal balancer, which is why they removed the 3rd wire from the balance plug.
1. Using an official Fatshark battery charger.
2. The solution is to go to settings and turn off the “Bal Connection” alarm. Then charge in Lipo Charge mode, not fast or balanced or anything else. Don’t plug the balance plug in . Set it to less or equal to 1C (Don’t too high to kill your fpv goggles battery) and charge away.
