Vanderbilt USA 12V Lithium-ion Battery
Vanderbilt USA 12V Lithium-ion Battery Description:
A lithium-ion battery or Li-ion battery(abbreviated as LIB) is a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging.
- Unlike Ni Cad batteries ,lithium-ion batteries do not have a charge memory. That means deep-discharge cycles are not required. In fact, it's better for the battery to use partial-discharge cycles
- The control system prevents overcharging, which can cause the lithium ion battery to overheat and potentially burn. This is why the Li-ion batteries are more expensive. The only way for the Li-ion battery to overcharge is if the charging system malfunctions, and then the battery will heat up while in the charger.
- You may need to take the device out of storage and charge again after a few months. Avoid using lithium ion batteries which are hot after being fully charged. Temperatures can be very high when batteries are freshly recharged.
4.2 volts per cell
It is particularly important to be able to detect the full charge state accurately because lithium ion batteries do not tolerate overcharging. Most consumer orientated lithium ion batteries charge to a voltage of 4.2 volts per cell and this has a tolerance of around ± 50 mV per cell.
