Example text

Almost all commercial batteries sold under the so-called ‘Polymer’ category are a variety of the Li-ion polymer using some sort of gelled electrolyte. A low-cost dry polymer battery operating at ambient temperatures is still some years away. Charging at High and Low Temperatures Rechargeable batteries can be used under a reasonably wide temperature range. This, however, does not automatically mean that the batteries can also be charged at these temperature conditions. While the use of batteries under hot or cold conditions cannot always be avoided, recharging time is controlled by the user.

Li-ion chargers detect the SoC by voltage only and multiple reconnections will not confuse the charging regime. More precise full charge detection of nickel-based batteries can be achieved with the use of a micro controller that monitors the battery voltage and terminates the charge when a certain voltage signature occurs. A drop in voltage signifies that the battery has reached full charge. This is known as Negative Delta V (NDV). NDV is the recommended full-charge detection method for ‘open-lead’ NiCd chargers because it offers a quick response time.

The third stage is the float charge, which compensates for the self-discharge after the battery has been fully charged. Figure 4-3: Charge stages of a lead acid battery. A multi-stage charger applies constant-current charge, topping charge and float charge. Correctly setting the cell-voltage limit is critical. 45V. 35V/cell. 45V/cell may be used. Figure 4-4 compares the advantages and disadvantages of the different voltage settings. 45V/cell Maximum service life; battery remains cool during charge; ambient charge temperature may exceed 30°C (86°F).
