Does anyone EXPERIENCED IN ELECTRONICS have any advice on the best way to clean battery contacts?
I spray contact cleaner onto a cotton tip and clean with that.
Would this be classed as the sort of markings expected, or be likely to cause problems ?
You have to clean it with cotton tip and contact cleaner.
Spray the contact cleaner over the cotton tip, then use the tip to clean the contact of the battery.
Don't forget to clean the contact of the phantom.
Would a pure, surgical spirit (95-99%) be a good contact cleaner?
These are gold plated contacts.
Sure they'll be wear do to the nature of the pins but there's no need for exotic cleaners.
Alcohol is just fine.
Actually, I am asking in reference to normal DJI Phantom batteries. Those are probably not gold so does it still hold, alcohol should be enough?
Yes they are gold plated but the quality and hardness vary depending on cost, mfg. specs. and other considerations.
Additionally the battery terminals on the battery are recessed and therefore extremely difficult to access.
Suit yourself and choose what you feel comfortable with.
For me alcohol and a q-tip is all I've ever used.
Alcohol will soften the plastic over time and possibly make a loose connection.
