4S 14.8V LiPo Batteries

4S 14.8V LiPo batteries are a specific type of lithium polymer (LiPo) battery configuration commonly used in various applications, including remote-controlled vehicles, drones, and portable electronic devices. The “4S” refers to the number of cells connected in series within the battery pack, and “14.8V” represents the battery’s nominal voltage.
Each individual cell in a 4S LiPo battery has a nominal voltage of 3.7V. The total voltage adds up to 14.8V by connecting four cells in series. It’s important to note that the actual voltage of a fully charged 4S LiPo battery can be around 16.8V, while the minimum safe voltage for discharge is typically around 12V.
The capacity of a 4S 14.8V LiPo battery is measured in milliampere-hours (mAh) and determines the amount of energy the battery can store. Higher capacity batteries can provide longer runtimes but may also be larger and heavier.
4S LiPo batteries are known for their high power output and are often preferred in applications that require increased voltage and current capabilities. They balance voltage, capacity, and size, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
Handling and using 4S 14.8V LiPo batteries with care and following proper safety guidelines is essential. This includes using a compatible charger specifically designed for LiPo batteries, storing them in fireproof containers, and monitoring their voltage levels during charging and discharging to prevent overcharging or over-discharging, which can damage the battery or pose safety risks.
When selecting a 4S 14.8V LiPo battery for your specific application, consider capacity, discharge rating (C rating), size, weight, and compatibility with your device or equipment. Consulting the manufacturer’s guidelines and seeking expert advice can help you choose the right battery that meets your power requirements and ensures safe and reliable operation.

3S 11.1V LiPo Batteries

3S 11.1V LiPo batteries are a popular configuration of lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries commonly used in various applications. The “3S” designation indicates that the battery pack consists of three cells connected in series.
I recently discovered the structure of a 3S LiPo battery and was fascinated by how the cells are linked in a series circuit. In essence, the positive terminal of one cell is linked to the negative terminal of next LiPo cell, resulting in a consistent flow of energy throughout the battery. It’s incredible how such a tiny component can have such a significant impact. This series connection results in a cumulative voltage output. Each cell in a 3S LiPo battery typically has a nominal voltage of 3.7V, so when three LiPo cells are connected in series, the total voltage of the LiPo battery pack becomes 11.1V.
One of the key advantages of 3S LiPo batteries is their higher voltage output compared to single-cell or lower voltage battery configurations. It makes them suitable for applications that require higher voltage levels, such as RC vehicles, drones, electric airplanes, and other high-performance electronic devices.
The voltage provided by a 3S LiPo battery pack can offer increased power and performance capabilities. It allows motors, servos, and other components to operate at higher speeds and with greater efficiency. The higher voltage also enables faster charging times and enhances the overall performance of the connected devices.
When considering a 3S LiPo battery for your custom needs, it’s important to take into account factors such as capacity, discharge rating (C rating), size, weight, and compatibility with your specific application. Lipol, as a reputable LiPo battery manufacturer, can provide custom solutions tailored to your requirements.

3P LiPo Batteries

3P LiPo batteries are a specific configuration of lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries consisting of three parallel cells. In a 3P configuration, all three cells’ positive terminals connect, and the negative terminals are also connected.
Connecting the cells in parallel increases the overall capacity of the battery pack while maintaining the nominal voltage of a single cell. Each LiPo cell typically has a nominal voltage of 3.7V. By connecting three cells in parallel, the voltage output remains the same at 3.7V, but the capacity is tripled compared to a single cell.
The increased capacity offered by 3P LiPo batteries makes them suitable for applications that require extended runtimes and higher current demands. By distributing the load across multiple cells, 3P LiPo batteries can provide greater current output and deliver more sustained power, it makes them popular in applications such as RC vehicles, drones, electric bikes, and other high-performance devices.

Units of Battery Capacity: Ampere Hours

The energy stored in a battery, called the battery capacity, is measured in either watt-hours (Wh), kilowatt-hours (kWh), or ampere-hours (Ahr). The most common measure of battery capacity is Ah, defined as the number of hours for which a battery can provide a current equal to the discharge rate at the nominal voltage of the battery. The unit of Ah is commonly used when working with battery systems as the battery voltage will vary throughout the charging or discharging cycle. The Wh capacity can be approximated from the Ahr capacity by multiplying the AH capacity by the nominal (or, if known, time average) battery voltage. A more accurate approach takes into account the variation of voltage by integrating the AH capacity x V(t) over the the time of the charging cycle. For example, a 12 volt battery with a capacity of 500 Ah battery allows energy storage of approximately 100 Ah x 12 V = 1,200 Wh or 1.2 KWh. However, because of the large impact from charging rates or temperatures, for partial or accurate analysis, additional information about the variation of battery capacity are also provided by lipo batteries manufacturers.

Basics about Discharging

The purpose of a LiPo battery is to store energy and release it at a desired time. This section examines discharging under different C-rates and evaluates the depth of discharge to which a LiPo Battery can safely go. The document also observes different discharge signatures and explores battery life under diverse loading patterns.

The electrochemical LiPo Batteries has the advantage over other energy storage devices in that the energy stays high during most of the charge and then drops rapidly as the charge depletes. The super capacitor has a linear discharge, and compressed air and a flywheel storage device is the inverse of the LiPo Batteries by delivering the highest power at the beginning. Figures 1, 2 and 3 illustrate the simulated discharge characteristics of stored energy.

Most rechargeable LiPo batteries can be overloaded briefly, but this must be kept short. LiPo Battery longevity is directly related to the level and duration of the stress inflicted, which includes charge, discharge and temperature.
Remote control (RC) hobbyists are a special breed of LiPo batteries users who stretch tolerance of “frail” high-performance LiPo batteries to the maximum by discharging them at a C-rate of 30C, 30 times the rated capacity. As thrilling as an RC helicopter, race car and fast boat can be; the life expectancy of the packs will be short. RC buffs are well aware of the compromise and are willing to both pay the price and to encounter added safety risks.

To get maximum energy per weight, drone manufacturers gravitate to cells with a high capacity and choose the Energy Cell. This is in contrast to industries requiring heavy loads and long service life. These applications go for the more robust Power Cell at a reduced capacity.

 

Simple Guidelines for Discharging LiPo Batteries
  • Heat increases LiPo battery performance but shortens life by a factor of two for every 10°C increase above 25–30°C (18°F above 77–86°F). Always keep the LiPo battery cool.
  • Prevent over-discharging. Cell reversal can cause an electrical short.
  • On high load and repetitive full discharges, reduce stress by using a larger LiPo battery.
  • A moderate DC discharge is better for a LiPo battery than pulse and heavy momentary loads.
  • A LiPo battery exhibits capacitor-like characteristics when discharging at high frequency. This allows higher peak currents than is possible with a DC load.
  • Nickel- and lithium-based LiPo batteries have a fast chemical reaction; lead acid is sluggish and requires a few seconds to recover between heavy loads.
  • All LiPo batteries suffer stress when stretched to maximum permissible tolerances.
