NewBeeDrone & Joshua Bardwell Smart Power Goggle Cable

The NewBeeDrone & Joshua Bardwell Smart Power Goggle Cable is a collaboration product between NewBeeDrone and Joshua Bardwell.

Back in Mid 2021, Joshua Bardwell contacted us and brought up the idea of a smart goggle power cable adaptor. We realized that we could make a device to power a goggle through leftover 4S/6S batteries from quads since even if the battery level is at 30%, it still has enough power to supply the goggle. 

At first, we thought of just making a very simple power module board that takes 2S-6S batteries and connect it with a 5.5x2.1 DC male plug and use a heat shrink to cover it. However, that method seems too unreliable so we decided to put a power indicator LED light and a buzzer to indicate the number of battery cells when you plug in a battery. The aluminum case acts like a shield to protect the hardware while providing heat dissipation for the power module.

Why do we call it the Smart Power Module? Because it can automatically detect input voltage to indicate battery cell and will output voltage based on the battery voltage. If the battery voltage is too low, it will give a low voltage to trigger the "goggle low voltage" warning.

Wish it had 2s

I got it anyway but 2s support would mean one cable could be used for all my batteries. I use xt30 2-3s.
Also the barrel connector doesn’t fit ev200d well for some reason. I thin the plastic extends a little far or something funky with the barrel inside.

Dead after a week

Loved the idea! The problem is that after using it for a week, I just tried plugging in a 4s battery and heard a spark and now it won’t work. Hopefully it’s just mine, but it sucks.

Thought better of you till this JB

Taking a friends idea and making it your own is BS Mr JB

A very handy cable

Your batteries can do double duty now.
Power your goggles with this nice little converter cable.
Drops your 3s through 6s batteries down to 2s voltage.
Highly recommended.

This is amazing. Love it. Such a smart idea

Love it. Works great. Lent one to a friend because his goggle battery had a problem and it saved the day
