6 Differences between Li-Polymer Battery and Li-ion Battery
Lithium polymer battery generally refers to the polymer lithium-ion battery; lithium-ion battery is divided into liquid lithium-ion battery and polymer lithium-ion battery or plastic lithium-ion battery according to different electrolyte materials used in lithium-ion battery. Do you know the difference between lithium polymer battery and lithium-ion battery? Let’s learn these 6 tips.
Relative to lithium-ion battery, lithium polymer battery features are as follows:
1. No battery leakage issue, the lithium polymer battery does not contain liquid electrolyte inside, it use of colloidal solids.
2. The lithium polymer battery can be made thin battery, for example, 3.6V 400mAh battery, its thickness can be as thin as 0.5mm.
3. The battery can be designed into a variety of shapes.
4. The battery can be bent. The polymer battery can be bent around 900 in maximum.
5. Lithium polymer battery can be made single high voltage. The liquid electrolyte battery can only be a few batteries in series to get high voltage, while polymer battery due to their own non-liquid, can be made in a single multi-layer combination to achieve high voltage.
6. Capacity of lithium polymer battery will be twice the same size lithium-ion battery.
