LITHIUM POLYMER

CLICK TO VIEW TABLES

Providing one of the highest energy density solutions among popular rechargeable battery chemistries, Lithium Polymer batteries are frequently applied to portable consumer electronics. Most LiPo batteries are made with cobalt or manganese, the former allowing batteries to accomplish the extremely high discharge rates required by todays fixed wing and multirotor UAV applications.

LiFePO4

LiFePO4 batteries, also known as Lithium Iron Phosphate or LFP (Lithium Ferro Phosphate) have a slightly lower energy density than Lithium Ion, but provides a higher degree of stability, longer cycle life and are well suited for high temperature applications. Lithium Iron Phosphate has also become popular alternative for motorcycle and marine batteries due to its reduced footprint, lighter weight and superior energy density versus sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries.

LITHIUM ION

Lithium-ion batteries, sometimes know as LIB or Li-ion are popular in portable electronics and medical devices. Li-ion batteries feature a high energy density, no negative memory effects and a slow loss of charge when not being used. While available in many form factors the 18650 size cell has become the go-to standard for many military, electric vehicle, and aerospace applications.

CHARGING SYSTEMS

The battery charging system is an integral component of any well-designed rechargeable power plant.
