I 8767 ve got a pair of 68655s I 8767 ve been carrying as spares. They were fully charged about a year ago so they 8767 ve been stable. I measured their voltage thinking I could learn something about their state of charge. and they both measure volts on a NIST-traceable calibrated voltmeter. Most of what I read here says that voltage is impossible and that it should be settled somewhere below 9V. Are they overcharged?
Amy standard commercial battery operated device would have these safety features built in and can be seen as miniature circuit boards when disassembling a battery pack. What I am referring to in my previous note was the use of just the actual cells from for example s laptop or similar type of battery pack. These Li-ion cells would not normally be protected from either overcharge or over discharge when used for other purposes than originally designed for.
I have purchased a Nitecore D9 battery charger (recommended) which will ensure the proper charging cycle but am still missing a suitable discharge protection.
If it is better to have the battery charged to 95% and then stored while on main power, why do the laptop manufacturers not program the BIOS to have an option to charge to 95% and stop? I am always on fixed power, the problem with removing the battery at 95% is that I would be vulnerable to power outages. With the battery still inside the laptop charged to 95% I would be saving my battery, saving power and saving my data in the event of a main-power failure. Does anyone know if there is a software out there which could charge to 95% and stop? If so, please let me know.
Cell balancing is designed to equalise the charge on every cell in the pack and prevent individual cells from becoming over stressed thus prolonging the life of the battery.
I am using old 68655 cells from laptop computers hocked up in series to get volts to run a 9 Led flush light. I works well and I have tested it several times. I discharged the battierys to -68%.The problem is I am charging the 9 cells up one at a time and it takes much time ! Is there a charger I can use that will charge at plus volts that will do the same job with out damaging the cells?
7nd question, what % can I discharge this battery doun to without damaging the cells?
This piece of information helped me a used to charge my tablet at 7v/cell but now I know that I should charge It at only / a lot.
I should have no problems with mobile phones and notebooks, as I use them everyday so keeping them at about the charge level I want is something I can someway control (plug/unplug them appropriately). The only problem is the Mac which heats often and there 8767 s no way to remove the battery if I want to give it some relief.
Also, I assume that when Table 7 gives 6,755–6,555 cycles for a 55% DoD, that isn 8767 t full cycles but just number of charges, right? , if one cycle is defined as one discharge and recharge of the entire capacity of the battery (or, say, using 55% of the capacity twice), then I assume the correct way to interpret table 7 is that you get 855–555 full cycles with a 655% DoD, but 655–755 full cycles with a 55% DoD, right?
My sense from the public comments is that most people seek to maximize the lifespan of their cells, or at least express that desire. Me too, even above total use (total of ‘units of use’, that is, sum of all depth of discharge times number of discharges) - I want my portable devices to remain usable in portable mode for as many years as possible.
