Lipo (Lithium) Battery Safety Guide
Lipo (Lithium) Battery Safety Guide main imageLipo (Lithium) Battery Safety Guide imageCharging Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries have very specific charging requirements and MUST only be changed by specific chargers designed to charge lithium polymer batteries. Mishandling of these batteries can lead to fire or explosions.
Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries are a great new way of storing energy for portable devices from cell phones, home electronics to RC hobby battery packs used in cars, boats and flight. They’re great because they can store 350% (approximately) more energy than a typical NiCd/NiHm battery pack and weigh 10% – 20% less. They can also discharge much more current than a NiCd/NiHm battery and can be fully charged in about an hour. LiPo batteries also don’t develop memory or voltage depression characteristics like NiCd/NiHm batteries, and do not need to be discharged before being charged. But they’re not without their downside. Mishandling of these batteries can lead to fire, explosions, and toxic smoke inhalation. In the rest of this guide, we will cover safety guidelines of charging and handling Lipo battery packs. Some may seem obvious, but it is often the obvious things that are the most dangerous when ignored. Charging Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries have very specific charging requirements and MUST only be changed by specific chargers designed to charge lithium polymer batteries. We recommend only balance charging your lipo batteries. All good quality Lipo battery packs come with 2 leads. The main charge / discharge lead and connector and a balance lead and connector. Using a computerized balance charger to charge your Lipo batteries will ensure that all the cells in the battery pack have the same voltages. The voltage value is critical to the condition (during use) and safety of each cell, which we will cover more in this article.”1S” or 1 cell LiPo battery has a nominal voltage of 3.7v. When fully charged it has a maximum voltage of 4.2v and when fully discharged, it should never go below 3.0v without risking cell damage. Based n this logic “5S4P” battery pack means that the pack contains 5 cells in a series circuit and 4 cells in a parallel circuit. Since each cell is 3.7v (nominal) a 5S LiPo battery has a nominal voltage of 18.5v, a fully charged voltage of 21.0v and a maximum discharged voltage of 15.0v before damage occurs. When charging LiPo batteries, they must be charged at the voltage of the number of cells in series, therefore a 5S4P pack must be charged as a 5 cell pack. The LiPo charger you’re using must be able to handle the cell count of the battery you are charging. A good, computerized charger will automatically detect the cell count of the battery being charged while the cheaper ones will require a manual setting. Chargers that auto detect the cell count of a LiPo battery can sometimes be wrong. They use the current voltage of the battery to determine the cell count and if the battery is fully charged or at a lower voltage than it should be, it may read the cell count incorrectly. This is why it is very important to double check that it reads the right cell count which is typically displayed on the LCD display.
Doing some research and investing in a good quality Lipo charger from the outset will not only save you money in the long run and give you more enjoyment of whatever you are running but will also ensure your safety!
