Difference between power lithium battery and ordinary lithium battery

Date:Jul 23, 2019

First, the nature is different

A power battery is a battery that powers a transportation vehicle, generally compared to a small battery that supplies energy to a portable electronic device. An ordinary battery is a lithium metal or lithium alloy as a negative electrode material, and a nonaqueous electrolyte solution is used. The primary battery, and the rechargeable battery lithium-ion battery are not the same as the lithium-ion polymer battery.

Second, the battery capacity is different

In the case of new batteries, the battery capacity is tested by a discharge meter. The capacity of a general power battery is about 1000-1500 mAh; while the capacity of an ordinary battery is above 2000 mAh, and some can reach 3400 mAh.

Third, the discharge power is different

A 4200mAh power battery can discharge the power in just a few minutes, but the ordinary battery can not do it, so the discharge capacity of the ordinary battery can not be compared with the power battery. The biggest difference between a power battery and an ordinary battery is that it has a large discharge power and a high specific energy. Since the main use of the power battery is the vehicle energy supply, it has a higher discharge power than the ordinary battery.

Fourth, the application is different

Batteries that provide driving power for electric vehicles are called power batteries, including traditional lead-acid batteries, nickel-hydrogen batteries, and emerging lithium-ion power lithium batteries, which are divided into power-type power batteries (hybrid vehicles) and energy-type power batteries. (Pure electric vehicles); Lithium batteries used in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and notebook computers are generally referred to as lithium batteries, which are different from those used in electric vehicles.

It is the power battery discharge rate is large, it is easy to cause fire and other safety issues. At the same time, the design has special protection for safety.
