Battery Selection

I need help in selecting a battery for one of the project which me and Jagannath Sahoo is working on, powered by Arduino Pro mini with ESP-8266 and a DC motor interfaced with it. The DC motor is rated at 6v, 1A and ESP’s power consumption is almost unpredictable for us.

Please help us in choosing an appropriate battery type with an appropriate config and charging circuit.

LiPo is very unstable. In the event of thermal runaway…damage is catastrophic
Requires inline usb charging…which without balance board can be dangerous.

Suraj Parasuram AFAIK, there are 2 types of Lipos. One is high discharge (>20C), used mostly in RC. The other, low discharge (typically 2C) is used in power banks and wireless CCTV cameras.

Suraj Parasuram is also right… LiPos are dangerous if you don’t pay attention and need to be charged carefully with an specific charger (20-30$)… but, in my opinion, is what is needed in these cases
