How to keep Lipo batteries warm in the cold.
During the winter months it’s extremely important to find a way to keep those Lipo batteries warm so that they can continue to perform.
There are a couple effective ways to do this. The most effective is to find a square heating pad that you can place in your battery bag at the bottom. The only issue here is you will need a power source, not always an option when out on location.
The second method is the method I’ve used when I don’t have access to the generator or another plug in. These tire heaters work perfect to plug into a small 3s Lipo and keep the batteries warm. Simply place your batteries on top of each element and choose a heat that won’t melt the plastic.  Also don’t forget to keep an alarm on the Lipo batteries
Disclaimer: you must make sure to attach the sensor to one of the pads so they don’t run on full power not stop. To do this, just poke two small holes through one of the pads and zip tie the sensor to it so it is secure.
This will help keep your batteries warm while out in weather normally too cold for Lipo batteries.
Good luck, respond to the post with any questions!

    Zac Eskelsen, Owner of Helivate Films kills it!!!! He took our production level to the skies with moving dynamic imagery. It’s always great to have people on your team willing to push the envelope and take chances to create that amazing shot, Zac is that person. Super easy going, wonderful to work with and an amazing pilot. I would recommend him to anyone for their professional aerial needs. - Mike Jones.

    Zac saved my bacon. We were nearly to our location in Moab (4 hours away) when our aerial cinematographer had to turn back with a family emergency. Called Zac. Not only was he very accommodating with our immediate schedule, but he quickly got the concept and was able to capture images that enhanced the cinematic storytelling of our show. So easy to work with. And talented too. Thanks Zac.

    I found my experience with Zac Eskelsen and Helivate Films to be outstanding in every way. Not only can they “deliver the goods” when it comes to aerial photography, they were professional to work with, prompt at responding to our questions, and attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Helivate.
