Ever since the first plastic wrapped multi-cell LiPo battery appeared in RC modelling applications, the lithium rechargeable battery has come a long way.


Why Lithium batteries are better

COMPARED TO LEAD BASED BATTERIES, LITHIUM BATTERIES HAVE THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES


Risks associated with lithium batteries

Solution: Select a battery with an internal over charge limiting circuit, and the more stable LifePO4 type. Where possible employ a charger designed for lithium batteries.

Solution: Select a battery with internal cell balancing electronics.

Solution: Batteries which are used for storage applications (ie not engine starting), should incorporate internal current limiting circuits.


Why are rechargeable lithium batteries so hard to find:


Why Li-Start lithium batteries?

Even Li-Start engine starting batteries have internal cell balancing and over charge protection.
