Information and Product Offerings for Batteries with Tabs for Battery Pack Assembly
Are you a do-it-yourselfer who prefers to build and rebuild your own battery packs for many of your devices that contain battery packs, or do you have a project or product prototype requiring a battery pack or custom battery pack? We have the solution for you.
Many consumer electronic devices today, are powered by battery PACKS containing rechargeable batteries of either NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride), NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) or Lithium Ion chemistries, instead of individual NiMh or NiCd cells. What does this mean? Simply put, a battery pack is a single unit comprised of several (2 or more) individual cells. An example of this is a 9.6 volt battery pack, comprising 8 individual 1.2 volt batteries in it. Battery packs might contain batteries in Sub C size, mainly used in drills, or they might contain sizes such as 2/3A, 2/3AA, AA cells and many,many other sizes. When these need to be replaced, sometimes it can be as, or more expensive than the purchase price of the device they powered. This leads many consumers to build (or re-build) their own battery packs at home. Of course there are many outstanding deals to be had for battery packs online,where there is no brick-and-mortar overhead factored into the cost of delivering them to your door. Still, for the handy do-it-yourselfer who prefers to save even more money, this can be done easily by anyone with the ability to operate a simple spot welder in their home workshop. If you require a custom battery pack assembly job, onlybatteries provides this service.
We have many customers who require custom battery pack assembly for their product production lines and we take many small orders from people wishing to rebuild battery packs for their cordless telephones. Whatever your battery pack requirements are, we can deliver what you need.
Let's touch a bit on the voltage aspect of the battery pack.
Below, you will see a list of different voltages, and how many cells you would require in order to rebuild a battery pack delivering the sum total voltage of the individual cells.
2.4 volt: would require 2 cells of 1.2 volt each
3.6 volt: would require 3 cells of 1.2 volt each or 1 Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) cell
4.8 volt: would require 4 cells of 1.2 volt each
6 volt: would require 5 cells of 1.2 volt each
7.2 volt: would require 2 cells of 1.2 volts each
8.4 volts: would require 7 cells of 1.2 volts each
And so on..
It may be possible that you have a 3.7 volt, 7.4 volt, 11.1 volt, or a 14.4volt battery pack which would have Lithium Ion (LI-Ion) cells in it. Lithium Ion cells are different from NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) or NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) chemistry cells.
Furthermore, the single biggest difference between NiCd and Nimh rechargeable batteries, (apart from the higher mAh ratings NiMh provide) is that NiMh batteries do not experience memory effect, whereas NiCd rechargeables do. Memory effect is a term that refers to the reduced capacity of a battery which has been recharged prior to being fully drained. In NiMh technology, there does not exist this effect. You may recharge these batteries without concern for how much power is left in them at the time of recharge. In NiCd chemistry, there does exist this potential, although as a result, they cost less. Having said that, you might have already decided which chemistry you prefer to use.
In NiMh technology, there are batteries with many sizes and mAh ratings. You can get them in as low as 320 mAh and as high as 10000mAh. (milliampere hours) and in sizes as small as AA and as large as size D.
In NiCd technology, there are also batteries with many sizes and mAh ratings. What is your application? If you're not sure, we invite you to contact us with your battery pack query. We're always delighted to provide accurate technical information to all who inquire, prior to their purchase.
With either chemistry, you will want to own a good quality battery pack charger to protect not only your battery pack investment, but also have confidence that you'll always have "juiced" batteries to operate your devices.
