Do not attempt to charge these batteries using chargers for nickel based batteries or any charger not specifically designed for this technology.
Lithium ion cells are not sold as off the shelf products and are not available as a standard product from distributors. The reason is for safety. Please read this precautions sheet from Sanyo. Lithium ion cells, however can be assembled into packs by authorised pack assembly centres such as our company that have been approved for safety circuit assembly and Lithium ion pack design. For information on the safety circuits, more commonly known as a protection circuit module (PCM) please click here.
Lithium Ion Batteries can be assembled into battery packs in series &/or parallel. For pack design enquiries please contact us with your requirements. If you already have some parameters please click here for a Battery Application work sheet & email it to us.
