Lithium polymer (also known as LiPo) is a well-known chemistry often used in batteries. For example, a LiPo battery is often used for development projects of various professional applications.


When companies set up a technical development project, choosing the right battery type is often done last. This can lead to problems which slow down the development process. Often LiPo batteries are chosen for these trajectories, because they are small and compact, which makes them easy to incorporate into certain systems.


Also, the size of a LiPo battery (length x width x height) can be adjusted slightly. This makes them more compliant with the specifications of the particular system they will be used for.


However, these battery types have other features which make them interesting for professional applications.

Advantages of a Lithium Polymer battery

LiPo offers advantages over other types of batteries. Some of these advantages are explained here.


Low weight: Lithium polymer batteries and accumulators are approximately 20% to 35% lighter than, for example, a NiMH battery. For this reason, they are often used in portable applications.


No memory effect: Memory effect: Memory effect occurs in some batteries when they are frequently discharged to a certain level before being fully recharged. The capacity of a battery becomes lower this way. LiPo batteries do not suffer from this memory effect.


High discharge current: The discharge current of lithium polymer batteries is very high, making them excellent for demanding applications and devices. Think of hard disks and motors of video cameras.


Operates at different temperatures: This type of batteries can perform under various temperatures. They can be charged at 0℃ to +60℃. Discharging is from -20℃ to +40℃.


Environmentally friendly: LiPO batteries are more environmentally friendly than many other battery types because they do not contain toxic substances such as cadmium or mercury.
More charge: A lithium polymer battery or accumulator can hold more charge than other batteries, such as the NiCD or NiMH battery. This high energy density provides a lot of capacity (mAh) per charge.
Long lifespan: Generally LiPo batteries last a long time. This is especially useful for devices where it is difficult to change batteries (depending on the application). Fortunately, these battery variants have excellent rechargeability (over 300 charge cycles).
In addition to lithium polymer, there are other lithium batteries that are commonly used in professional applications. Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) or lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are some examples. More information? Feel free to contact Daan!

What added value does Elfa offer?



Elfa has been a specialist in supplying batteries and accumulators to the business market for over 100 years. In this time we have gained a lot of experience and we have expanded our services so that we can offer advantages over other suppliers.



We supply battery samples to customers so that you can test, fit and measure the batteries yourself for the relevant application. For example, it is important to measure how much the battery grows during charging. It is important not to be too tight, because a cell can grow a bit during charging. So if a cold battery only just fits into a device, it may end up being too tight when charged/loaded. Fortunately, we can help you with this. Elfa offers advice on the expected growth of the battery.

Battery adjustments

As a battery specialist for the business market, we know that batteries are often used for specific applications. A standard battery therefore does not always suffice. At Elfa we therefore offer the possibility to adjust the current protection on the PCB. We can also apply a different NTC (negative temperature coefficient), longer wiring or a different connector. The wishes and needs of the customer are central in this.



If desired, we can make a custom-made data sheet for the LiPo battery at Elfa. If you agree on the design and specifications of the battery, we will make a datasheet (in Word format) to which you can apply your own corporate identity elements. This is especially interesting for wholesalers.
