Charging a drone battery while remote bikepacking.
My drone that I carry on my bike is a DJI Mavic Air, fly more combo. Now charging the batteries for the drone has been done via a 20,000 mAh powerbank with 12v output on it. Note: Everything that I have with the drone and accessories is 100% bought by me.
On my Simpson Desert crossing on my fatbike I charged the powerbank via a 22 watt 5v solar panel, which in perfect sunlight conditions would take all day to charge. Then to charge a drone battery from flat to a fully charged state, this would take 50% of the powerbank for just for 15 minutes of flight time. So I had to be very selective about the usage of the drone.
Now my future bikepacking trip of a 2,500km/4 desert crossing of the Canning Stock Route in remote Western Australia needed a whole rethink to my charging setup. This trip will be a 2 month trip with no pubs, shops, servo’s or even a powerpoint on the side of the track! It also means carrying 1 month’s food on the bike as well. There will be one Aboriginal settlement at the halfway mark for my food drop for the next month’s riding.
The current charging setup just wasn’t going to cut it for 2 months of total isolation. My goal was to be able to charge a drone battery directly from a solar panel for the standard 1 hour charge. Don’t me wrong, the 22 watt, foldable solar panel on the front of the bike is brilliant for 5V charging, so why not go back to that company for a bigger one and that’s exactly what I did. A 60 watt 19V foldable solar panel, weighing 1.4kg. Now that’s a lot of weight for the average bikepacking trip, but remember this will be my nuclear powerplant for the totally isolated 2 month journey!
With the panel output at 19V, this needed to be stepped down to a precise 13.2V for the drone battery. So, a DC/DC buck convertor did the trick. The one I went with has a digital readout of voltage in and voltage out, but I could have gone with one with no readout, making the unit a little smaller. I 3D printed a case in ABS plastic for the buck and also printed in TPU (rubber) cable support protectors. The buck has two push buttons, the left one for turning the digital display on/off and the right for voltage in/voltage out.
After putting it all together, it was time to test it out and in just over one hour I had a fully charged drone battery and one happy camper!
