What is a lipo battery?

What Is a LiPo Battery? Lithium Polymer batteries (henceforth referred to as “LiPo” batteries), are a newer type of battery now used in many consumer electronics devices. They have been gaining in popularity in the radio control industry over the last few years, and are now the most popular choice for anyone looking for long run times and high power. LiPo batteries offer three main advantages over the common Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) or Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) batteries: 1. LiPo batteries are much lighter weight, and can be made in almost any size or shape. 2. LiPo batteries offer much higher capacities, allowing them to hold much more power. 3. LiPo batteries offer much higher discharge rates, meaning they pack more punch. But, just as a coin has two sides, there are some drawbacks to LiPo batteries as well. 1. LiPo batteries have a shorter life span than NiMH/NiCd batteries. They average only 300 – 400 cycles if treated properly. 2. The sensitive nature and chemistry of the batteries can lead to fire should the battery get punctured and vent into the air. 3. LiPos need specialized care in the way they are charged, discharged, and stored. The equipment can be price-prohibitive. In short, LiPo batteries offer a wide array of benefits. But each user must decide if the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. For more and more people, they do. In my personal opinion, there is nothing to fear from LiPo batteries, so long as you follow the rules and treat the batteries with the respect they deserve.
