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 over a decade. We offer turn-key lithium battery pack solutions for OEMs/ODMs that meet unique requirements of cost, performance, reliability, energy efficiency, longevity, light-weight design and mission critical applications.

Lithium technology has rapidly grown in use over the last decade in consumer electronic products such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and vehicles. Lithium technology is becoming more and more popular in the rechargeable product market due to its lightweight, efficient capacity and reliability. In addition, thanks to advances in safety features like our Battery Management System, well-designed lithium batteries are safer for consumer use than ever before.

Lithium Power has been successfully deploying its lithium battery packs with its proprietary Battery Management System (BMS) solutions to many emerging application markets. Applications include robotics, bionics, medical equipment, solar energy storage, consumer electronics, and electric vehicles like automated guided vehicles and military grade robotic vehicles. The smart battery solutions also come with UL certifications when required. As a result, Lithium Power has built up strong technical and professional barriers to entry against competitors. 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. This expansion will profit from the continued decrease of the unit price per kWh of lithium batteries compared to older battery technologies. Lithium technology will continue to become more cost effective into the foreseeable future. As a first step in its expansion, Lithium Power is looking to target two new market segments, the lead acid replacement battery market and solar energy storage market.

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, and 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 also approaching the unit price of 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 and computer, communication and consumer electronic products. With unique safety and cost advantages over competing battery technologies (and over other lithium-focused engineering competitors,) Lithium Power plans to start its expansion by strategically targeting the solar energy storage and golf cart battery 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 advance in lithium battery technology.

How does the addition of a Smart BMS improve a device’s utility? Let’s explore just 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 and dropping from the sky, putting the owner at legal risk of 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.

The old, 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. Plus, 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); 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.

Conventional BMSs that most suppliers offer are equipped only with simple over-charge/discharge protection. This kind of lithium battery pack requires special balancing charger-to-charger. This is the conventional low-cost approach used with Ni-MH/Ni-Cd battery packs, with very limited protection features.

Consumers and industrial users are very aware of the need to use lithium batteries safely and smartly. Our Smart BMS offers stronger safety features that prevent charging in high temperatures or discharging in low temperatures. Both of these can damage lithium batteries, and are the main cause of hoverboard batteries that were in the news in late 2015.

Our Smart BMS also provides communication protocols like SMBus 2.0, CANBus, Bluetooth to communicate with the owner or monitor of the devices to provide instant and remote connection to the BMS’s safer and smarter applications.

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. We develop new technology through valued OEMs/ODMs opportunities. For over a decade, we have provided our customers with the quality custom-made power solution they need and deserve.
