STORING LITHIUM-ION BATTERY SYSTEMS YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION

If you do not need a battery-operated electrical device for a longer period of time, you should store the  lithium-ion Battery Systems in such a way that it cannot be damaged. In this blog post on the subject of "Storing lithium-ion batteries", we will explain to you exactly what you pay attention to, what you do and what you should avoid.

How to properly store lithium-ion batteries

Today, devices with a rechargeable lithium-ion technology are more the rule than the exception. Modern lithium-ion technology offers great advantages, for example in terms of a long service life, low self-discharge and high energy density. However, if you need to store a lithium-ion battery for a long time, there are a few things to keep in mind. In the following we would like to introduce you to some important rules for the correct storage of the batteries:

1. Make sure that the charge level is optimal

In order to store a lithium-ion Battery Systems, you should neither charge it completely nor discharge it too much. The optimal charge level is around 40-50 percent of the capacity and, in the best case, can be set on the charger. We therefore always recommend a charger that shows the charge level so that you can interrupt the charging process when the battery is about half charged. If your charger does not offer the possibility of a direct charge level control, you can temporarily fully charge the battery first and then insert it into the electrical device. There is often a display about the charge level so that you can first specifically discharge the power storage in the device before you then store the lithium-ion battery.

2. Always store the lithium-ion battery outside the device

Since a small amount of current can flow even when the electrical device is switched off - this applies to a cordless screwdriver as well as an e-bike - you should always remove the battery from the device and store it separately . This prevents the lithium-ion battery in the device from gradually being discharged when it is not in use and prevents deep discharge, which in the worst case can destroy the battery. By the way, because of a possible permanent discharge, you should not store the lithium-ion Battery Systems in the charger , but rather separately, because the charger can also draw power from the battery and thus continue to discharge it.

3. Provide optimal storage conditions

Not only is it critical that you remove the lithium-ion battery from the device for storage, you should also store the battery in a safe place. A storage location with stable temperatures is optimal , whereby a cooler environment with a temperature of no more than 10-15 ° C extends the life of the battery cells. At even lower temperatures, there is a risk that the battery will be damaged by the cold, so you should choose a location that does not cool down too much, even in deep winter. In addition, the environment must be permanently dryas moisture can penetrate the lithium-ion Battery Systems and cause short circuits. You should also avoid direct sunlight, so an ideal storage location is a garage, a dry cellar or an insulated shed .

4. Defective batteries must be disposed of, not stored

If you have the impression that the lithium-ion battery is no longer working properly, you should react quickly and correctly: Defective Battery Systems must be properly disposed of or repairedand as soon as possible. Because a defective battery is a potential hazard and in the worst case can explode or burn. For example, as soon as you see a bulge or expansion on the battery cover, cracks or other signs of changes inside the battery, you should remove the battery from the device immediately and take it to a collection point.

SECRETS YOU WILL NEVER KNOW ABOUT PROFESSIONAL PLUMBER

connected and prepared. The easiest way is when you need to replace a faulty mixer, in this case you will roughly imagine which model you need, how long the hoses will be needed, to which supply the hot water is connected and to which cold water. Today we will talk about how to install a faucet on a washbasin. If the faucet was already on the washbasin, and it was convenient, such models should be considered, but special attention professional plumber should be paid to quality and maintainability. Expensive models will be more reliable, but in the event of a breakdown, consumables in the form of crane boxes, cartridges, aerators can be very expensive, and they can not always be found in stores. Preference should be given to high-quality mixersand cranes of the most common brands, having previously checked with the consultant whether spare parts are available for repair, and in what range the prices are. Note the length and height of the spout, sometimes referred to as the gander. It m

TOWING SERVICE CAR: A FEW SIMPLE TIPS

The car broke down on the road. We'll have to tow it to the service. But how? In a driving school, this topic is touched only in passing. Therefore, knowledge of the transportation of the car will be useful to everyone. We decided to share them. First of all, you need to decide how exactly you will transport your car to the place of the proposed repair. There are several options: on a flexible hitch, with the help of partial or full loading. Towing service  on a rigid hitch is carried out using a special design. Unlike a conventional cable, it provides a constant distance between vehicles. This is a plus. Typically, this method is used for towing heavy equipment and trucks. And quite rarely - passenger cars. The usual towing eye of a modern car simply cannot withstand a rigid hitch - with regular jerks it can break off. And hardly anyone will carry with them in reserve a device for a rigid coupling of cars. The most accessible from a technical point of view and at the same time the

HOW TO GET PEOPLE TO LIKE PINK DIAMOND

It's amazing how one and the same stone can awaken in a person a variety of intentions and aspirations - an unfair struggle has been fought over diamonds for centuries, today these precious stones are the most valuable exhibits at exhibitions, and the cost of Pink diamond at auctions rises to unimaginable limits. Diamonds evoke the brightest emotions, delight, but at the same time give rise to dark thoughts, inspired by the desire to single-handedly possess the treasure. In the world of jewelry, everything is not so categorical, diamonds in products and accessories are so widely represented that each buyer can choose stones in any price category, literally from several thousand rubles. This gem is a diamond cut in a special, ultra-precise way: the facets are arranged in such a way that the natural beauty of the stone is emphasized - its color, transparency, light refraction. Jewelers have developed enough types of cut to find a personal approach to each  Pink diamond , a way that
