This is 18650 battery with the typical capacity of 2000mAh. It is Lithium-Ion based and rechargeable battery (Need proper charger) in cylindrical shape. 18650 battery has become very popular nowadays, many power bank is using it as storage(when being charged) and power source (when being discharged). Even electrical vehicle like Tesla is using 18650 battery particularly to build their battery pack.
And since this single-cell battery has higher voltage and capacity, rechargeable; it is a very economical solution in electronic or robotic projects. In some cases, this battery has been used for IoT devices powered by Solar or renewable energy. The battery becomes an energy storage device. And of course, it can be series up to get higher voltage, for example, connecting 2 units in series (2 x 18650 battery holder) to get 7.4V (nominal) or 3 units(3 x 18650 battery holder) to get 11.1V using the 18650 battery holders.
Please do charge it using the proper charger with a balancer. Li-ion batteries should be charged and discharged properly to prevent short lifespan and downgrade of its capacity. We recommend using any of these chargers:
- N2 Plus Universal Charger
- Dual 18650 Li-ion Battery Charger
- Multifunction LiPo Balance Battery Charger
- 1A Lipo Charger Module with Protection
- Power Boost 1000 Charger (1A 1000C)
Note: This 18650 battery comes with both end (positive and negative) flat metal terminal and there is no protection circuit, so please take extra precaution. Check the polarity before connecting it to load or charger.
