Lithium Ion Polymer (LiPoly) Battery - 3.7V 500mAh
- Product ID: 296
- MPN: 1578
Lithium Ion Polymer batteries, also known as LiPoly or LiIon batteries, are thin, light and powerful. Their voltage varies from 4.2V when fully charged to 3.7V. This is a 500mAh battery. We also have these in other capacities.
It comes with pre-attached high quality JST connector with the wire. The included protection circuitry keeps the battery voltage from going too high (over-charging) or low (over-use) which means that the battery will cut-out when completely dead at 3.0V. It will also protect against output shorts. We recommend using Adafruit's charging boards to charge these batteries.
Like most lipos, the batteries we sell do not have thermistors built in. This is why we suggest charging at 1 C or even less - 100 to 500mA is a good rate, and available from any USB port if using a USB-powered charger
Additional safety notes: Do not use a NiMH/NiCad/lead-acid charger! Also, do not abuse these batteries, do not short, bend, crush or puncture. As with all Lithium ion polymer batteries and with any power source - they should be used by experts who are comfortable working with power supplies.
