Welcome to the awesomeness that is LiPo batteries. Polymer Lithium Ion batteries offer superior energy density with this 2400mAh battery being on 6mm in height!

With a cell voltage of 3.7 Volts, these batteries are perfect for microcontrollers and other low power devices, especially when paired with a good DC/DC regulator for logic level output.

Built into the battery is an over-voltage, over-current, and minimum voltage protection circuit which makes them even easier to use, although care must be taken when using LiPo batteries. Incorrect charging, usage, or physical damage to the battery can result in a fire. Be sure to only use a specific LiPo charger.

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.

Remember that like any power source, you should be extra careful not to short the power pins as doing so can damage your battery and cause it to swell/overheat, rendering it unusable and dangerous.

Tech Specs:

  • 67mm x 60mm x 6mm
  • 2400mAh capacity
  • 52g
  • 2C continuous discharge
  • Great energy retention with low self-discharge rates (<8% per month)
  • Reliable under extreme conditions (-10 to 50C)

  • So, my wife wanted to have some small plants in the house. I didn’t, so we compromised, and got some plants. The only thing is that neither of us remembers to water them, so I wanted to build a sensor array to monitor the moisture content of the soil, and notify us when they needed watering. We’ve got 3 plants, all fairly close to each other, and I wanted to create an IoT project so that it could send an email notifi...

    With great power comes great responsibility. Use this battery wisely and you'll have the power you need, providing your needs do not exceed the 2,400mAh capacity of this battery. (Posted on 3/10/2017)

    A good capacity battery, in a relatively small flat package. The capacity rivals that of most flagship smart phones. Plugs straight into the PowerBoost 1000C with no fuss. (Posted on 9/06/2017)

    Reliable. Holds a nice charge. Used it with the Sparkfun Photon Battery Shield for Particle Photon jobs I want to make mobile. Great for robotics too. (Posted on 18/04/2017)

    The item is quite large and may not suit all applications, but the extra capacity makes the size worth while. (Posted on 4/07/2016)
