Custom-made battery packs lead acid battery solutions outdoor renewable energy storage system Lithium Battery for Robotic Vacuums

We offer turn-key solutions for custom-made battery packs

Lithium Power, Inc. has been the industry leader in lithium battery technology for nearly two decades. We offer turn-key lithium battery pack solutions for OEMs/ODMs that meet each company’s unique requirements of cost, performance, reliability, and safety.

Lithium technology has rapidly grown in use over the last decade in consumer electronic products such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and vehicles. The technology is gaining popularity in the rechargeable product market due to its light weight, efficient capacity and reliability. In addition, advances in safety features and well-designed lithium batteries are safer for consumer use than ever before.

Lithium Power has been successfully deploying its custom made lithium battery packs and proprietary Battery Management System (BMS) solutions in a wide variety of markets. Applications include robotics, medical equipment, solar energy storage, consumer electronics, and electric vehicles such as AGV (automated guided vehicles), military grade robotic vehicles, golf carts, and more. The custom Smart Battery solutions also come with UL certifications when required.

Lithium Power now seeks to expand its successful business model of custom made Smart Battery solutions to serve more industries within the OEM/ODM business world by offering the proprietary BMS solution alone in addition to custom made lithium battery packs. Along with the continued decrease of unit price per kWh of lithium batteries, this expansion will allow lithium battery technology to target two new market segments: lead acid replacement and solar energy storage.

Marketplace Opportunity

Lithium battery technology has a well-established reputation for its superiority over lead acid battery technology. For example:

  1. Lithium batteries typically offer six times the energy density of lead acid
  2. Lithium batteries offer greater resilience for temperature ranges and fluctuations, also high current charge/discharge
  3. Lithium batteries generally provide 5 to 10 times the cycle life
  4. The unit price per watt-hour of lithium batteries is approaching lead acid batteries

Within 2 to 5 years, Lithium Power believes that lithium batteries will replace lead acid batteries in many industries and products by offering advantages in size, weight, efficiency, measurability, maintenance, scalability, and cost. The driving forces behind the increasing affordability of lithium battery solutions can be credited to electric vehicles, computers, communication and consumer electronic products. With unique safety and cost advantages over competing battery technologies (and over other lithium-focused competitors), Lithium Power plans to start its expansion by strategically targeting the solar energy storage and lead acid replacement markets.

About Lithium Power

Industry experience in multiple vertical applications. Our cross-domain knowledge of Smart Batteries can bring value to OEM customers in both battery design and innovative new features. OEM customers can leverage everything we have accomplished in lithium technology to improve their product lines.

Lithium Power’s unique Smart Battery Management System (BMS) – A significant advancement in lithium battery technology.

How does the addition of a Smart BMS improve a device’s utility? Let’s explore two recent examples:

  1. Before drone makers built in our Smart BMS, they faced major issues. There was no accurate way to tell how much power remained during a flight. This raised the risk of a drone running out of power mid-flight and causing damage to people and property.
    With our unique BMS technology and communication protocols, our drone battery delivers precise fuel gauge information to the drone controller. The drone’s controller automatically forces the drone to return to the charging base when the power drops too low.
    For professional drone users with video cameras (such as GoPro TM), our battery solution can support the extra power needed to fly the heavier vehicle without adding a lot of battery weight. We make drones smarter, more manageable, more functional, and safer.
  2. For users with high battery power requirements (5,000Wh and up), a single battery pack is too heavy and bulky for transportation and installation. Such a solution would be as bad as using lead-acid batteries.
    Lithium Power's unique Smart BMS allows batteries to charge and discharge in parallel. This unique technology utilizes a modular design to increase capacity, adding additional modules without requiring increased voltage.
    For example, to meet a 10KWh battery power requirement, we will offer a design based on four 2.5KWh battery modules:
    1. Easy to transport
    2. Easy to install
    3. Effective, cell-balancing power use controlled automatically by our Smart BMS
    4. Dramatically enhanced battery pack reliability
    5. Hot swappable and battery modules back each other up

The conventional charging system for an array of multiple lithium batteries is to use a balancing charger. This works poorly due to the lack of communication ability between batteries. For example, the whole battery system will continue to function even if one battery cell malfunctions. When the battery set gets too hot, safe operation standards demand that the battery, not the charger, communicate whether or not it should continue to charge.

Custom Made Lithium Battery Packs as Turn-key Solutions

Our practical knowledge of lithium technology and years of industry experience in its application delivers a quality battery design that works. We offer an original and unique ODM (Original Design Manufacturing) Smart Battery Management System (BMS). Our custom-made lithium battery packs provide turn-key solutions for specific markets such as robotic vacuums; e-bikes; UAV/drones; AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle); various electric vehicles; UL certified battery packs for two-wheel balancing hoverboards; UPS 19” rack mount batteries for call centers and telecoms; scalable lithium battery modules for solar power, and medical grade lithium battery packs for nursing carts and other portable medical device applications. Installation of our lithium battery packs is as easy as can be.

Most BMS available on the market are equipped with simple preset over-charge/discharge protection. Our BMS offers multi-level temperature, current, and voltage protection parameters as well as user configuration battery settings.

Using communication protocols like CANBus, SMBus, and Bluetooth, users can monitor and manage battery conditions and usage. LCDs and LED lights can also deliver important battery information.

We continue to offer professional turn-key solutions for custom-made battery packs with advanced features such as cell balancing, wireless charging, high C-rate discharging, highly-integrated power management, the Internet of Things and remote monitoring.
