These are very slim, extremely light weight batteries based on the new Polymer Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. Each cells outputs a nominal 3.7V at 2000mAh! This battery comes terminated with a standard 2-pin JST-PH connector - 2mm spacing between pins. Do not attempt to charge these with anything but a charger specifically designed for Lithium Ion batteries.

Battery includes built-in protection against over voltage, over current, and minimum voltage.

Note: Due to shipping restrictions, only two batteries can be shipped together at one time. We should be able to ship more than two batteries at a time by the end of 2014.

Note: Although these cells are rated for 2C continuous discharge, the wiring and connectors are only rated up to 1A, so be sure to take that into account when determining your power requirements.

Note: Be careful with the JST connectors. They can stick in pretty good and tugging on them can damage the connector. Check this tutorial for an easy way to remove them safely.

Note: Please use caution when using this battery in wearable projects. When using conductive thread, a short in the thread can create sparks and heat. We recommend using coin cell batteries for beginners.

    Item arrived very quickly.
    Unfortunately the red (+ve) wire simply detached from the soldering point on the battery as I unpacked it.
    The wire didn't break off, the soldering point was faulty.
    Kind Regards,

    Good quality L-Ion battery which is right on spec for the capacity rating.
    The project it's being used in calls for a continuous ~1A load which this battery can do without even breaking a sweat. Haven't tested on larger loads.
