Dear Davide, I leave you in Vivian's hands, I'm sure you will come to an agreement., Vivian is professional in our product.

—— Davide Bet

Here is the signed PI. Thank you , We hope

—— Mr Ander

12V 110Ah battery pack for solar product I like your solar battery pack. Good quality and delivery fast.

—— Eyal Dolev

The battery pack is more atractive for us . May I receive drawing of other pack 12V 20AH with dimentional info ? I need 50pcs to test .

—— Nizamettin

We have received the battery packs and performing tests have passed . We are impressed by the assembly. it is almost the best one . thank you

—— Alexander Kozhushko

Pictures show a nice battery pack, performance is ok , We need serial connected 4cells (4S1P) configuration with protection circuitry

—— George Komisar

big thanks for your work, we got the cargos last week, it seems nice.

—— Johnny Black

I think it is a good idea to solve the problem, I am really appreciate you would like to help us.

—— Simone Kowalk

yes , we received the batteries and chargers last Friday, Everything looks great,well packed, no damage and dlivered in the time frame as promised.

—— Met vriendelijke groet

Thanks for your input, we have checked each and every think and on our side every thing is great. Just proceed to submit the company documents to get approval.

Quick Understanding of Characteristics and Parameters of Six Common Lithium Batteries (2/6)

The second material


LiMn2O4   (we also called high power or high rate battery )

Spinel lithium manganate batteries were first reported in 1983. In 1996, Moli Energy Company commercialized lithium-ion batteries using lithium manganate as cathode material. The structure forms a three-dimensional spinel structure, which can improve the ion flow on the electrode, thereby reducing the internal resistance and improving the current carrying capacity. Another advantage of spinel is its high thermal stability and safety, but its cycle and calendar life are limited.  Low battery internal resistance can realize fast charging and high current discharge. 18650 type battery, lithium manganate battery can be discharged at 20-30A current, and has moderate heat accumulation. Load pulses up to 50A1 seconds can also be applied. Continuous high load at this current will lead to heat accumulation, and the temperature of the battery should not exceed 80 C (176 F). Lithium manganate is used in electric tools, medical devices, and hybrid and pure electric vehicles.

Figure 4 illustrates the formation of a three-dimensional crystal skeleton on the cathode of a lithium manganate battery. The spinel structure is usually composed of a rhombic shape connected to the lattice, and usually occurs after the formation of batteries.

The crystallization of lithium manganate cathode has a three-dimensional skeleton structure formed after formation. Spinel provides low resistance but lower specific energy than lithium cobalt.

The capacity of lithium manganate is about one third lower than that of lithium cobalt. Design flexibility allows engineers to choose to maximize battery life, or to increase maximum load current (specific power) or capacity (specific energy). For example, the long-life version of 18650 battery has a moderate capacity of only 1,100 mAh, while the high-capacity version has a moderate capacity of 1,500 mAh.



Figure 5 shows a spider diagram of a typical lithium manganate battery. These characteristic parameters do not seem ideal, but the new design improves in power, safety and life. Pure lithium manganate batteries are no longer common today; they are only used in special situations.

Despite its general performance, the new lithium manganate design can improve power, safety and life.


Most lithium manganate is mixed with lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) to increase specific energy and prolong life. This combination brings the best performance of each system, and most electric vehicles, such as Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt and BMW i3, use LMO (NMC). The LMO part of the battery can reach about 30% and provide higher current at acceleration, while the NMC part provides a long range.



Lithium-ion batteries tend to combine lithium manganate with cobalt, nickel, manganese and/or aluminium as active cathode materials. In some architectures, a small amount of silicon is added to the anode. This provides a 25% capacity increase; however, as silicon expands and shrinks during charging and discharging, it causes mechanical stress, which is usually closely related to short cycle life.



These three kinds of active metals and silicon reinforcement can be conveniently selected to improve specific energy (capacity), specific power (load capacity) or life. Consumer batteries need large capacity, while industrial applications need battery systems, which have good load capacity, long life and provide safe and reliable services.


Voltage       3.70V (3.80V) nominal value; typical operating range 3.0-4.2V/battery



Specific energy (capacity)      100-150Wh / kg   100-150 Wh/kg



Charging (C Rate)      Typical value is 0.7-1C, maximum value is 3C, charging to 4.20V (most batteries)



Discharge (C rate)    1C; some batteries can reach 10C, 30C pulse (5s), 2.50V cut-off.



cycle life      300-700 (depending on discharge depth and temperature)



Thermal runaway     Typical value is 250 degrees C (482 degrees F). High charge promotes thermal runaway



application      Electric tools, medical equipment, electric power transmission system



Notes          High power but low capacity; safer than lithium cobalt oxide; usually mixed with NMC to improve performance.
