Panasonic Rechargeable Lithium-ion 18650 Battery Pack Of 10
Charging current should be less than the maximum charge current specified in the Product Specification. Charging with higher current than recommended value may cause damage to cell electrical, mechanical and safety performance and could lead to heat generation or leakage.
Charging shall be done by voltage less than that specified in the Product Specification (3.2V/cell). Charging beyond 3.70V, which is the absolute maximum voltage, must be strictly prohibited. The charger shall be designed to comply with this condition. Charging with higher voltage than maximum voltage may cause damage to the cell electrical, mechanical safety performance and could lead to heat generation or leakage.
Prohibition of reverse charging:
Reverse charging is prohibited. The cell shall be connected correctly. The polarity has to be confirmed before wiring. In case of the cell is connected improperly, the cell cannot be charged. Reverse charging may cause damage to the cell which may lead to degradation of cell performance and damage the cell, which will cause heat generation or leakage.
The cell shall be discharged at less than the maximum discharge current specified in the Product Specification. High discharging current may reduce the discharging capacity significantly or cause over-heat.
It should be noted that the cell would be at an over-discharged state by its self-discharge characteristics in case the cell is not used for long time. In order to prevent over-discharging, the cell shall be charged Periodically to maintain between 3.2V and 3.4V. Over-discharging may cause loss of cell performance, characteristics, or battery functions. The charger shall be equipped with a device to prevent further discharging exceeding a cut-off voltage specified in the Product Specification. Also, the charger shall be equipped with a device to control the recharging procedures as follows: The cell battery pack shall start with a low current (0.01C) for 15 - 30 minutes, i.e., pre-charging, before rapid charging starts. The rapid charging shall be started after the (individual) cell voltage has been reached above 3V within 15 - 30 minutes that can be determined with the use of an appropriate timer for pre-charging. In case the (individual) cell voltage does not rise to 3V within the pre-charging time, then the charger shall have functions to stop further charging and display the cell/pack is at abnormal state.
