How to help battery life?

Our batteries are dying within 5 minutes of use, idle its about 15 minutes. We need a way to fix this because we are worried that it will die in the middle of a match, and that we wont have enough batteries for a competition.

Please do not create more than one topic for co-related problems.

Dying after 5 minutes is definitely not normal. Can you run the battery medic and report back what it says?

or may be related to the second post about motors overheating. I think it is best to focus on one thread.

Battery medic is a good suggestion.

its not the batteries, we have new ones and old ones, all of them drain very fast regardless

Is the V5 brain’s firmware up to date?

Focus on your motor overheating thread - that is where you will be able to solve battery depletion. The focus is on better design and build quality will yield longer battery run time.
