How to make lithium polymer batteries last longer
Recently, Japanese researchers have recently developed a safer lithium battery pack electrolyte that is not easy to burn or explode even in high temperature environments. As lithium batteries are widely used in electronic equipment such as drones, electric cars or mobile phones, traditional lithium-ion batteries use extremely flammable organic electrolytes, which poses serious safety risks. In addition, lithium-polymer batteries have a long service life and Lithium batteries are closely related to use and maintenance.
What type of battery should I use: 7.4V, 11.1V, 14.8V or higher?
You should use it in your ESC Take a look at the allowable input voltage of your ESC in the description. Your battery voltage needs to be within the range of the ESC.
What do 12C, 15C, and 20C mean?
The C (discharge rate) value refers to the amount of electricity discharged by the battery, which is related to the discharge limit of the LIPO battery. A high C value means that the battery has a high discharge load capacity, and at the same time, a high The C value also gives the user a more explosive feeling when accelerating.
Do I need to 'balance' my LIPO battery?
Need, if the cells in your battery are unbalanced (or mismatched) with each other, they may not be used, because such a battery will easily be overcharged and over-discharged, and may also explode. The balancer is This risk can be reduced. So our LIPO will have a balanced platform or a balanced charging interface. You need to buy a charger with the function of a balanced LIPO battery. The new battery can be charged directly with a balanced charging for the first time. It takes a long time, but it can be activated better. The battery, let its performance reach an optimal state, follow-up use can be charged with the discharge end first, reach about 4.1V and then use the balanced charge and balance voltage, so that the battery's service life can be longer.
Is a voltage limiter needed in LIPO applications?
The limiter is actually a functional component used with the old ESC to automatically cut off the voltage of the LIPO. It is not a LIPO.
When using the LIPO to receive the battery It is also compatible with the receiver. It is used to prevent the battery from being over-discharged during use during discharging and making the battery unusable.
The battery's open circuit voltage is usually 6.25V or 3.0V per cell As long as the voltage of LIPO's monolithic cell is lower than 3.0V, you may not be able to recharge it.
Does the battery need more time for maintenance?
It does not require more time, but more care. Its maintenance is the same as that of ordinary LIPO batteries. But common sense is your best tool.
Unfortunately, the misuse of LIPO resulted in related disasters. The tragedy is usually blamed on those who did not pay attention to and did not follow the usage rules set by the battery manufacturer.
Incorrect use of the battery Examples include: running their motors at a high temperature of 80 degrees, causing the battery to overheat; overcharging and over-discharging the battery under incorrect charging settings.
Can I continue to use or repair the battery after it has been damaged or mishandled?
If a LIPO has been completely destroyed or exceeded its recommended limit for overcharging and overdischarging and the battery has begun to swell, please do not try to repair it.
