Batteries
Destructive Testing
Why is LiFePo4 safe ?
Impedance Values .. 19 mohms
10.5mohms
Low Impedance .. 10.8 mohms
SLA discharge curve low C-rate
Lithium discharge curves, hi C rate
Energy Densities
Watthours / kg – Watthrs / Liter
Rogone plot - energy storage
Energy Release / chemistry type
Exothermic volatilty
Lithium cells - LiFePO4
Lithium can safety valve
See-thru clear case design
BMS
Balancing circuit
Balancer circuit
Charge display
Low V alarm , LVC circuit
