FAQ For Lipo Battery Pack

2019-01-11

Why isn't the Lipo Battery Pack Fully Charged?

During the recycling process, the lithium polymer battery pack stops when it is charged without the overall cut-off voltage of the battery pack. This situation is caused by the inconsistency of the battery pack’s single-string power or capacity. The high-capacity or low-capacity first charge is protected by the protection board so that the other strings of battery power are not fully charged to stop the charging process.

In this case, the lipo battery pack can be recharged by the equalization charger so that the voltage of each string is consistent. If the capacity difference is significant, the battery with a significant difference must be replaced. But the most important thing is that the battery must be tested for capacity and divide capacity before assembly. Otherwise, it will be trouble to have a single string and re-disassemble.

Why is the Lipo Battery Pack Working Time shorter than before?

When the lipo battery pack is used, it will be discharged quickly. The reasons for this are: the battery is not fully charged; the single-string voltage capacity difference is significant; the battery pack is short-circuited or the battery pack self-discharges, causing the battery pack to be fully charged when it was consumed.

For the above defects, the battery pack can be recharged or replaced with a bad battery.

Why is the Lipo Battery Pack at Lower Voltage?

The whole set of the voltage of the battery pack is only half of the nominal voltage or negative voltage. This situation usually occurs when the battery pack is just assembled. The reason is that the battery pack is misconnected. The positive and negative poles are reversed, or the individual batteries are not fully connected. After the battery pack is fully charged, it is normal, but it is left standing or low voltage immediately after using it for a period. This may be due to the large self-discharge of the battery or the micro-short circuit of the battery pack.

A nominal low or negative voltage must be rewired correctly. In the event of a low voltage at full charge, a bad battery must be replaced.

Why dose Lipo Battery Pack Cuase High Temperature?

When the lipo battery pack is charged or discharged, the temperature is abnormally high and hot. It may be due to the high internal resistance battery in the battery pack or the micro-short circuit condition of the battery pack, which causes the battery pack to heat up and discharge.

Long-term high-temperature operation of the battery pack is hazardous. In this case, it is necessary to replace the bad battery or repair the micro-short circuit.

Why dose the Cycle Life of Lipo Battery Pack Shorter?

The lipo battery pack life is terminated within the promised usage time. This is because the battery pack has the poor consistency or the battery pack’s series battery performance is particularly poor so that the battery pack is not fully charged during charging and cannot be discharged during discharge.

In this case, only bad batteries can be selected for replacement.

Why dose the Lipo Battery Pack Suddenly Stop Working?

The lipo battery pack suddenly stops working during use. The reason may be that the battery is discharged. The minimum voltage of the protection board or the controller is reached.  The protection board or the controller stops working. The continuous operating current is too large (such as the electric vehicle starts or climbs under load) When the slope is over, the design protection current of the protection board or the continuous current of the controller stops the protection board or the controller, which will cause the battery pack to stop working suddenly.

The above situation can be solved by charging or re-enabling the battery pack or re-adjusting the parameter replacement protection board.

Why dose Lipo Battery Pack Leaks and Catches Fire?

Lipo battery pack has a liquid spill during use or a sudden fire in the battery pack. This situation is rare, but it is hazardous after it appears. Leakage may also cause a fire and explosion, because the overflowing electrolyte lithium hexafluorophosphate is an organic solvent, and the ignition point is shallow. The reason is that the cell moisture is not completely dried, causing a side reaction inside the cell to generate gas to open the safety valve. Poor sealing of the battery cap is poor. The cause of the fire may be a short circuit or leakage of the battery inside or outside, the battery pack is close to the fire source, and the packaging material is not fireproof.

If the battery is only leaking and replacing the leaking battery, if the battery pack is on fire, it must be extinguished with a fire extinguisher or fire sand. Do not use water, clothes, etc. to extinguish the fire. Because the water is a conductor, the costumes are flammable.

Why dose the Lipo Battery pack Explosion?

The lipo battery pack is stationary or exploding during use. This situation is rare as the battery pack fires, but the consequences are severe. The cause is also due to external or internal long-term short circuit. The external short circuit is equivalent to an immediate super-large current discharge, which exceeds the limit of the cell protection board, and the internally generated gas is instantaneously ejected, which is very dangerous. An internal short circuit and a poor sealing effect of the diaphragm may also explode.

For the prevention of external short circuit, the protection board can be used to avoid. The protection board has short-circuited and over-current protection function to eliminate this risk, but the internal short circuit of the lipo battery must be reduced by using the qualified manufacturer qualified battery.

In conclusion, battery selection, pack process, charger, protection board problems, line connection, and improper use can cause the lipo battery pack to malfunction, try to avoid these hidden dangers and ensure the safe use of the battery pack.
