NEW PRODUCT – Lithium Ion Polymer Battery – 1200mAh

Lipo1200 Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – Lithium Ion Polymer Battery – 1200mAh. Lithium ion polymer (also known as ‘lipo’ or ‘lipoly’) batteries are thin, light and powerful. The output ranges from 4.2V when completely charged to 3.7V. This battery has a capacity of 1200mAh for a total of about 4.5 Wh.

The batteries come pre-attached with a 2-pin JST-PH connector as shown and include the necessary protection circuitry. The protection circuitry keeps the battery voltage from going to high (over-charging) or low (over-use) which means that the battery will cut-out when completely dead. It will also protect against output shorts. However, even with this protection it is very important that you only use a LiIon/LiPoly constant-voltage/constant-current charger to recharge them and at a rate of 500mA or less.

Additional safety notes: Do not use a NiMH/NiCad/lead-acid charger! Also, do not abuse these batteries, do not short, bend, crush or puncture. As with all Lithium ion polymer batteries and with any power source – they should be used by experts who are comfortable working with power supplies.

  • Weight: 25g
  • Size: 1.35″ x 2.55″ x 0.2″ (35mm x 65mm x 5mm)
  • Output: 1200mAh at 3.7V nominal

Available and shipping now, $12.00 each in the Adafruit store!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  2. Manuel McLure

    Why 500mA maximum charge current? That’s under 1/2C – in the R/C world most LIPO chargers run at 1C during the constant current portion of the charge.

    Also, what’s the discharge rating on these? 5C? 10C?

  4. This is the batterie in my iRiver clix 8gb that I need to replace
    LPCS323450 Lithium ion polymer 1300 4.5Volt
    Can you help or anybody that would be able to help?
    Thanks

    BTW I am color blind your slider makes it hard for me.
