in our project we have a setup where the drone is automatically and autonomous charged after landing. In order to realise this, the two power contacts of the USB-C Port on the battery are connected to contacts on the drone’s feet. The drone lands on two aluminum plates, which are powered with 5V by a Mean Well MDR-60-5 power supply (MDR-60-MEAN WELL Switching Power Supply Manufacturer). The drone usually stays powered on while charging.
So far, all tests were successful, the drone charges without any apparent issues. However, I am wondering if there are any negative long-term effects on electronics and, of course, battery life. Are there any known problems with industrial power supplies not especially built for charging and are there any foreseeable issues when the drone stays powered on during charging?
