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.


Additionally, 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!

The LiPo batteries from Tracer

At Elfa, we offer a wide range of LiPo batteries from different brands, including Tracer’s lithium polymer batteries. Tracer batteries weigh only a quarter of sealed lead-acid batteries, making them ideal for situations where lightweight and compact 12V batteries are desired.


Tracer LiPo batteries feature soft rubber grips for an easy, non-slip grip and a sturdy ABS casing for protection during daily use. This makes them among the most durable and user-friendly lithium polymer batteries on the market.


Safety is paramount with Tracer’s LiPo batteries. The integrated BMS provides comprehensive protection against overcharging, over-discharging, thermal issues, and short circuits.

Tracer LiPo battery

Tracer’s smallest LiPo battery model has a voltage of 12V and a capacity of 4Ah. This battery is a popular choice for discrete applications. Tracer’s largest battery has a voltage of 12V and a capacity of 22Ah. This battery is often integrated into OEM systems and extensively used in media production.

What added value does Elfa provide?


Elfa has been a specialist in supplying professional batteries and accumulators for over 100 years. During this time, we have gained a lot of experience, allowing our specialists to expertly advise you on making the right choice. We have also expanded our services, allowing us to offer advantages over other suppliers.



We provide battery samples to customers so that you can test, fit, and measure the batteries for the respective application. It is, for example, important to measure how much the battery expands during charging. It is crucial not to be too tight, as a cell can expand a little during charging.


So, if a cold battery just fits into a device, it may end up being too tight when charged or loaded. Fortunately, we can assist you with this. Elfa provides advice on the expected growth of the battery. Feel free to request a sample via the contact form.

Battery Customizations

As a battery specialist for the business market, we understand that batteries are often used for specific applications. A standard battery may not always meet the requirements. At Elfa, we offer the option to customize the current protection on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). We can also apply a different NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient), longer wiring, or a different connector. In this process, the wishes and needs of the customer take precedence.



If desired, at Elfa, we create a custom-made datasheet for the LiPo battery. Upon approval of the execution and specifications of the battery, we then generate a datasheet (in Word format) where you can incorporate your own brand elements. This is particularly beneficial for wholesalers.
