‘Semi-custom’ Li-Ion battery pack service reduces engineering costs

System designers can select from a range of Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) cells, protection circuit modules (PCMs) and connectors, which can be combined to produce Li-Ion batteries ranging from 150 to 7,800mAh, via the CellPac Blox service from Varta Storage.

The Li-Ion battery pack configuration service offers the flexibility of a full custom battery pack but with shorter lead times and very low engineering costs, says the company.

More than 50 combinations of cells and PCMs have been tested and validated, and almost any standard wire/connector assembly can be added to create a semi-custom Li-Ion soft pack. A handbook presents compatible components for easy selection.

Approval samples and drawings of the chosen battery pack configuration will be shipped within three weeks of receipt of the specification. On approval, shipments for mass production have an expected lead time of 12-16 weeks.

All cells carry UL 1642 recognition, and all packs are tested for transportation according to the UN 38.3 standard. On request, additional options are available, such as IEC 62133 certification, or the use of non-standard connectors.
