When it comes to the majority of drones being flown around the world today, commercial or consumer, they are powered using a single or multiple Lithium-ion batteries. And one issue we all know Lithium-ion batteries are susceptible to when something goes wrong is puffing up and catching alight.
This is where a product like the offerings from STOREMASTA come in. STOREMASTA currently sells two Lithium-ion battery charging and storage cabinets to suit a wide range of needs, a 250L and a 30L model.
The 250L model features 12 charging points or outlets, allowing for up to 12 battery chargers to be connected at one time. The smaller 30L model features 8 charging points or outlets.
Both doors automatically close and perfectly seal with each other and the cabinet to ensure a fire doesn't spread. The walls, floor, door, and roof of both units are doubled walled sheet steel with a gap of at least 40 mm between the two to act as an insulating barrier against the heat and flames. The cabinets also contain a self-contained sump, allowing for any liquids to drip through the bottom of the cabinet.
Why would you want one?
If you're reading this, you likely already know why you would want a battery cabinet, but for those that aren't aware, here are a couple of reasons you might want or need one.
The big one is, of course, improved safety. Having a cabinet that can hold flames from puffed batteries means that the rest of the workplace won't also catch alight if no one is around at the time. This also means you can safely charge your batteries without having to worry about a charger breaking or a battery overcharging.
Easy and organised charging
Having all of your drone batteries in one place is a massive plus. We've all gone through charging our batteries at the nearest open outlet and then having to look around to find where you put it on charge, even harder for other people to find. The STOREMASTA cabinet allows you to keep all of your batteries and chargers in one place, making it easier for you and the rest of the team to find a specific battery.
