Sony adding industrial value to Airpeak drone


As part of their announcements at CES 2023, Sony has introduced a RTK module and additional power options for the Airpeak drone. The new add-ons mark a shift within Sony, recognizing that Airpeak is a powerful drone for inspection services, not just for photography enthusiasts.

While the RTK module is slated for future release, Sony is launching a new battery station this month. Store and manage up to ten batteries in a single case.

Sony Airpeak Battery Station

The LBN-H1 Airpeak battery station stores up to ten batteries. It can charge up to eight of those batteries, and handles four at a time. There are also multiple remote control charging cables, and a few accessory ports.

There are multiple charging modes available as well,. The Quick Charge will bump your batteries from 20% to 90% in about 30 minutes, while the Full Charge mode runs about 55 minutes to go from 0% up to 100%.

In all, the battery station should be enough to keep your Airpeak drone in the sky indefinitely, minus the battery swaps, of course.

The battery station should be available for purchase in January, and is expected to cost $2,899.

Stay tuned for more, we will be visiting Sony directly at CES 2023.
