New horizon by NiMH battery with wide discharge range

Usually, rechargeable NiMH battery’s charging voltage is in the range of 1.4–1.6 V/cell. For fast charging, it’s suggested that the NiMH cells should be charged with a smart battery charger in order to avoid overcharging that will cause damage in battery cells.

Save your upkeep cost for remote controls

Remote controls are consumer IR devices that send digitally-coded pulses of infrared radiation to control functions such as power, volume, tuning, temperature set point, fan speed, or other features. Remote controls for these devices are usually small wireless handheld objects with an array of buttons for adjusting various settings such as television channel, track number, and volume.

To operate these controls, remote control battery could easily run out. Also, damage to remote control can happen when it is not often used. For example, the remote control battery for air conditioner has to be taken good care of.

The improvement of rechargeable batteries

Rechargeable batteries, as can be commonly seen in household electronic devices, have a wide range of application. They are widely used for portable consumer devices, automobile starters, motorized wheelchairs, golf carts, electric bicycles, electric forklifts, household tools such as drills, remote control, clearners, speakers etc.

Safer Lithium Batteries are increasingly Demanded

Safer Lithium Batteries are increasingly Demanded

 

As more and more accidental overheating issues occured in electronic devices with poor- quality lithium batteries, there has sharply seen a growing need for safer lithium batteries. Manufacturers, sellers and consumers all concern about the safety in lithium battery products. A newer generation of safer lithium batteries is highly demanded.

 

 

A related paper in the safer lithium battery research published in June 17 edition of Nature Communications clearly points out how the addition of 2 chemicals to the electrolyte of lithium metal batteries can prevent the formation of dendrites. Let’s dig deep inside the lithium structure:

  • The needles of lithium that grow in the battery cell and puncture the barrier between the 2 battery halves eventually;
  • In that case, short circuit issues could take place due to their formation;
  • And the short circuits in the battery will result in overheating and combustion even possibly;

Looking for a Greater Battery Longevity

With the rapid development of high-quality batteries, universal batteries for household and industry are by far more advanced in performance and battery lifespan. However, batteries still will lose their capacity as the number of charge cycles increases if they are used in a repeated manner even without mistreatment. Capacity will continue to decrease untill the batteries eventually reach the end of their useful lifespan. As usual, a variety of types of rechargeable batteries are specified to last 400 to 1000 full charge-discharge cycles.

Whereas, battery capacity losses can be avoidable if we want a greater battery longevity. First off, we need to realize the most commonly-seen factors that might lead to harms for batteries’ lifespan. Frequently-seen rechargeable batteries’ lifespan could be endangered and shortened by the following four major factors.

How to Choose a Perfect Portable Battery Charger

Portable battery chargers, like a battery pack on-the-go style, have widely spread all over the world. Thanks to the manufacturers, you can almost find all kinds of designs, all kinds of specifications about portable battery chargers. And the great variety of battery charger models are totally able to meet the demand of different mobile phones, tablets and other devices.

How to Choose a Perfect Portable Battery Charger

Some battery chargers are designed to have a huge battery capacity which can keep plenty of battery power for a few charges until they need to reload for the next power storage. The smart short-circuit and overheating protection system design is crucial to a battery charger. Because the protection is instrumental to a battery charger’s longevity and safety in use.

Some advanced technologies have been applied to the output unit. An output port is able to automatically identify the ideal current amperage for a certain device plugged for a charge. And the amperage flows into the device in a safe and stable manner.

When planning to purchase a battery charger, quality, price, output ports, capacity specification, size, thickness, compatibility and portability should be taken into consideration.

  • As for the capacity specification, it is important to choose a battery charger with battery capacity that meets the need of your devices. Generally, for most smartphones, their battery capacity ranges from 2200 mAh to 3000 mAh, in this example, you should get a charger with a 7200 mAh battery capacity or a little above the number.
  • For a large capacity device like Galaxy Note 4, you’d better choose a charger with over 20,000 mAh for the battery capacity.

In order to choose a perfect portable battery charger, aside from the key specification, you also need to focus on the how it looks. Specifically, you might want a very handy size that fits your pocket; you might want it sturdy enough to stand tear and wear; you might want it an eye-catcher and you might want it more compatible with all your devices.
