Electrical appliances have transformed a great deal in recent decades. From desktop computers to laptops and from wire telephones to smart cell phones, this transformation has to lead us to discover new and more efficient ways of storing electrical energy.

Transportation means have also transformed a lot after a revolution in the battery industry. They have transformed from fuel engines to electrical powered engines that are more reliable, efficient, cheap, also environmentally friendly. Yes, the main thing that was polluting our environment, destroying our forest life, and becoming the cause of several respiratory diseases was the pollution caused due to vehicles, when these vehicles are transforming from carbon-emitting fuel engines to environment-friendly electrical engines.

All these electrical appliances and the vehicles using electrical power making our life easy and effortless require batteries for energy. These batteries have also evolved a lot with time. Researchers are continuously working to find new and efficient ways of storing reusable energy into these small and compact yet powerful batteries.

The 18650 is the most efficient form of available battery cells available today. Its name 18650 is the dimension of the cell. This cell is 18 millimeters wide and 65 millimeters long. It is the most reliable and compact battery cell available in the market today providing efficient energy for powering our devices.

Comparing a lead-acid battery with a lithium-ion 18650 battery will show us that these batteries are the best choice for our electric vehicles today.

For starting, it is due to their lightweight and the compact size these batteries are more feasible for electric vehicles as these vehicles require lightweight batteries so that there is a minimum load on them. Moreover, lead-acid batteries that are in our gas engine vehicles are heavy and big making them less advantageous for electric vehicles.

At high discharge rates, lead-acid batteries lose capacity. In easy words, if we draw a lot of current from these batteries then they will give a lot fewer amp-hours or watt-hours, whereas 18650 lithium batteries will not lose overall amp hours capacity after drawing a high amount of current.

Is 18650 Battery Need a Special Charger?

A lithium-ion 18650 battery does not need a special charger but can be charged by a simple DIY charger. Let us learn how to make a simple DIY charger for your lithium 18650 cells.

You will need four-cell holders for 18650 cells and 4 TP 40:56 charging modules. For making, your charger will cost you around three Euros and the total cost is less than 13 Euros and it will be a lot better than the cheap Chinese chargers in the market.

This TP 40:56 module is a very smart solution for charging your lithium cells. First, draw a simple schematic for the charger in which every battery holder will be connected to its charging module. Moreover, all the modules will receive current from a single 5V power supply.

Make the base with a non-conductive material then place the holders and modules connected with wires according to the schematic. In the end, use a 5V or 1000mA charger for power supply. And use a good quality thick data cable with the charger.

What Are Characteristics Of 18650 Battery Charger?

The 18650-battery charger can have the following characteristics:

1.18650-battery chargers are fast chargers. They can charge lithium-ion batteries like 18650, 18500, and 18350. It can also charge the 26650 and rechargeable AA and AAA batteries.

2.It has microcomputer technology for intelligent charging.

3.It has an optional 0.5A or 1A output charging current.

4.Large digital LCD display helps in understanding the current charging time, voltage battery type, internal resistance, and battery capacity data that makes understanding all the important information very easy and one can also analyze this data.

5.The 1-click setting that is available in most chargers makes it convenient for charging the cells at different rates depending on the type of batteries that you need to charge.

6.There are several current gears that you can choose from like the protective circuit for the lithium battery, an activation function for the CB universal battery charger. The restoration function for the lithium battery means that the life of the battery is greatly improved.

7.The auto current choosing function enables it to choose the most suitable charging current that is mostly 0.5 amp to 1 amp ensuring the longest lifespan.??

How Much IS a 18650 Battery Charger?

If you make your simple DIY charger, it will cost you around 13 Euros but if you will buy them from the market then they will have different rates let us look at some of them.
