Lithium Ion Battery Full Discharge Recharge Method and Fully Discharge Result
Is it OK to fully discharge a lithium ion battery?
That said, you are doing not need to fully discharge your batteries. Just connect the battery and charge them as needed. Small and partial charges are better for the general health of your battery. it's also recommended that when a month you discharge your battery completely and recharge it to 100%. Charge your batteries at temperature. If by any chance, you're experiencing weather that's below the 0C or above 40C don't charge your battery in the least. Charging batteries in these conditions may damage the battery and cause risk to your person because the battery may explode or erupt.
How do you recharge a fully discharged lithium ion battery?
To recharge an over-discharged Lithium ion battery, you would need to perform the following steps:
· Connect the most plug of the LiPo battery to the NiMH charger.
· Charge the battery with rock bottom possible current, like 0.1A.
· When the battery is charging, note of the voltage number that appears on the screen of the charger; once the amount reaches 3V unplug the battery immediately.
· Test the battery with the quality LiPo charger, you'd find the charger recognizes it. which suggests that the battery is not any longer within the over discharged rate.
· You can use the balanced LiPo charger then to charge your battery to its full capacity.
· What happens when a lithium ion battery is fully discharged?
· Li-ion batteries don't have what we call a charge memory. which suggests, that deep discharging cycles aren't required. consistent with experts, it's better to permit partial discharge cycles rather than full ones to preserve the lifetime of the Li-ion battery.
· However, once a month it's better to perform a totally full discharge. Let the Li-ion battery to discharge to the cut-off point then recharge it another time to the 100%.
· When a lithium-ion battery is totally discharged, which suggests discharging below 2.5 volts per cell. there's a built-in safety circuit which will open and lock the battery. If you plugged your conventional charger into the battery, you would find that it will appear as if the battery is dead to you. that's why if you ever encountered this condition attend a specialist to unravel this problem. When the Li-ion reaches this state "the deep sleep state" only battery chargers including the boost function will be able to recharge the battery once again. However, it is not a simple task and should be done by someone who is familiar with the process, and well trained. That is why it is recommended that f the Li-ion battery was stored within the completely discharged condition, do not try to recharge them once again for safety reasons, even if you have the appropriate devices. Instead, attend your local specialist and ask for their help. Remember that Lithium ion batteries can be very dangerous and may cause harm if dealt with unprofessionally.
