How to Make Lipo Battery with Long Cycle Life?
Recently, Japanese researchers have recently developed a safer lipo battery electrolyte that won’t prone to burning or exploding even in high temperature environments. Lithium batteries are widely used in electronic equipment such as drones, electric vehicles or mobile phones. However, traditional lipo batteries use extremely flammable organic electrolytes, which pose serious safety hazards.Lipo battery’s long cycle life has close relationship with use and maintenance.
Q1:What type of battery should I use: 7.4V, 11.1V, 14.8V or higher?
A1:You should look at the input voltages allowed by your ESC(electronic speed controller) in your ESC instructions. Your battery voltage needs to be within the ESC range.
Q2:What does 12C, 15C and 20C mean?
A2:The C (discharge rate) rate refers to the amount of electricity discharged from the battery. It is related to the discharge limit of the LIPO battery. A high C rate means that the battery has a high discharge load capacity, and a high C rate is also given to the user. There is a more explosive feeling when accelerating.
Q3: Do I need to "balance" my LIPO battery?
A3:Yes.If the batteries are unbalanced (or do not match), they are likely to be unable to use, because such batteries can be easily overcharged or explode. The balancer can reduce this risk. So our LIPO will have a balanced platform or a balanced charging interface. You need to buy a charger with balanced LIPO battery function. The new battery can be charged directly with the balance charge for the first time, but it can be activated for a long time. So that its performance reaches an optimal state, the subsequent use can be first charged with the discharge end, reaching 4.1V and then balanced with the balance voltage, so that the battery life can be longer.
Q4:Is the voltage limiter required in LIPO applications?
A4:The limiter is actually a functional component that automatically cuts off a voltage of LIPO when used with older ESCs.
It is also compatible with the receiver when using the LIPO to receive the battery. It is used to prevent the battery from being over-discharged during use and the battery can no longer be used.
The battery's cut-off voltage is usually 2.75V per cell. As long as the LIPO's single cell voltage is lower than 2.75V, you probably won't be able to charge it again.
Q5:Does the battery need more time to maintain?
A5:It doesn't take more time, but it requires more careful. Its maintenance is the same as general LIPO battery. But common sense is your best tool.
Unfortunately, because of the misuse of LIPO, and the associated disaster, the tragedy is usually responsible for those who do not pay attention to and do not follow the rules of user manual..
Examples of incorrect use of batteries are: Running their motors at 80 degrees high to overheat the battery; overcharging and over-discharging the battery under incorrect charging settings.
Q6:Can I continue to use or repair this battery after damaged or has been mishandled?
A6:No.If a LIPO has been completely destroyed or exceeds its recommended limits for overcharging and the battery has begun to swell, please do not try to fix it.
