There are very few 1S cells in the industry that really perform excellent. The 450mah 80C cell from GNB is one of them. There is a 550mah 95C cell from another company that is good as well but just does not last more than a handful of cycles. Until there is a better option, this 450mah 80C cell with XT30 is the primary cell we recommend using on any open prop 1S platform or powerful 1S whoop.
Compared to the GNB 600mah 50C cell, this one is a little lighter and is supposed to provide about 20% more amperage. In real world use, you can absolutely feel the performance difference if you fly it hard. Overall flight times are similar with the 600mah doing better only if you're cruising around very slowly.
THIS IS THE ONE TO GET FOR THE BABYTOOTH
About voltage on 1S cells:
Traditionally, we don’t want to run any LiPo below 3.3v/cell under actual use (under load) in flight. The actual issue is overdrawing amps from the cell which can cause overheating and sharp drops in voltage. 1S is a little different because it’s relatively difficult to overdraw the current from such a small cell that has such low voltage to begin with. This is why Whoop flyers generally land at 2.9v under load. If you slowly discharge a LiPo, it does not damage it to drop it down to 3v/cell and that’s basically what we’re doing with these very low voltage and low overall wattage crafts. Because this 3” 1S platform is more capable than the majority of other 1S quads, we would recommend landing when you see 3.0v in your OSD.
- 1S 450mah
- STANDARED voltage 3.0-4.21v
- Not recommended to run below 3.0v in flight
- XT30 connector on a ~13mm lead
- 13.2g with XT30 attached

After flying my Babytooth with a 300mAh and 2x 300mAh with Bt2.0 I switched to this battery with the xt30 and it is definitely the sweet spot that gets me the flight time I want while still not sacrificing flight feel.
GNB 1S 520mAh XT30 LiPo Batteries (3-Pack)
Works as expected.
It's a 1 cell , but with benefits. The xt30 it key. Thanks Guys. I'm glad I didn't have to make them myself now.
I found that the toothpicks are "one" of the best things in FPV hobby.
This battery adds to it.
In spades. . .
Would recommend!! Love this battery
