Lithium-ion batteries (Li-Ion)

Lithium-ion batteries (Li-Ion) of Panasonic

Panasonic is a world class manufacturer of top quality cells and industrial batteries. Panasonic products are recommended for applications where the highest level of reliability is required. The company’s range of products includes high quality lithium-ion, lithium and alkali batteries, Ni-MH and Ni-Cd (Cadnica) series batteries as well as lead-acid batteries. The superb combination of cell safety, reliability and lifetime puts this manufacturer amongst the leading world lithium-ion rechargeable battery manufacturers.

Cylindrical batteries

Cylindrical batteries are the most popular Panasonic rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. High density of energy and high voltage (3.6V/3.7V) result in relatively small battery dimensions. These rechargeable batteries deliver long lifetimes, a wide range of operating currents and low self-discharge rates. The cells are designed with user safety in mind, they include internal safeguards in the form of a fuse, pressure isolating switch and a separator layer resistant to increased temperatures inside the cell. When constructing rechargeable batteries from lithium-ion cells it is necessary to use an electronic plate to protect the cells against overcharging, excessively deep discharges, short circuits and high temperatures, all of which can damage the rechargeable battery causing a fire or explosion.

Prismatic batteries

Panasonic manufactures a number of Li-Ion prismatic type rechargeable battery models, including in two standard sizes. Similar to cylindrical formats, a necessary requirement when building rechargeable battery packs is the use of a plate for protection against overcharging and excessively deep discharges as well as short circuits which could damage the rechargeable battery and in extreme cases result in a fire.
