A new battery type has appeared:

Advantages:

  • 1000+ (dis)charge deep-cycles.
  • Low self-discharge; 5% / month at 25 deg. celcius
  • Very electrically robust
  • Very mechanically robust - can literally be nailed without explosion danger.
  • -30...60 deg. celcius operating
  • a123systems ANR26650M1 3.3V 2.3Ah can be charged in 15 minutes.
  • a123systems ANR26650M1 3.3V 2.3Ah cells are laserwelded instead of crimping, which lower water losses and therefore extends celllife.

Traditional (Li-ion (polymer)) lithium-accumulator only handles 300-500 (dis)charge deep-cycles

How to prolong lithium-based batteries: http://www.batteryuniversity.com/parttwo-34.htm Quote: "... A lithium-ion battery provides 300-500 discharge/charge cycles. The battery prefers a partial rather than a full discharge. Frequent full discharges should be avoided when possible...Increasing internal resistance with cycle life and age is typical for cobalt-based lithium-ion, a system that is used for cell phones, cameras and laptops because of high energy density. The lower energy dense manganese-based lithium-ion, also known as spinel, maintains the internal resistance through its life but loses capacity due to chemical decompositions..."
