Capacity measurement – 900mAh Lithium Polymer Battery for E_Sky Lama V3 V4 (LiPo) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Mechanically well constructed.
Don't seem to heat up while charging.
Price.
Cons:
Less than stated capacity.
Other:
I note that many of the reviews here are quite old so I thought I'd post my findings.
I'm still waiting on my Lama V3 to arrive so I can't comment on flight times but I have cycled a couple of these batteries through my charger.
Charged to 8.4V and then discharged to 6V under a modest load of 1/5C the capacity was consistently around 630 mAH.
Bottomline:
I see some of the older posts state that these batteries give better flight times than the stock Lama battery. When my Lama arrives I'll post again with a comparison. But based solely on measured capacity I would say the batteries might be comparable to the originals but I wouldn't expect a large improvement on flight times unless Esky batteries have overstated capacities as well.
