Lithium Polymer batteries were step 2 in the Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) and Nickel Metal Hybrid (NiMH) batteries. While these batteries had served their purpose the developments in personal electronics created a requirement for lighter, longer-lasting batteries. In 2002 the first with the Lithium-ion Polymer batteries arrived. Though it is a secondary industry for these batteries handy remote control and motorcycle hobbyists also jumped at the potential for a lighter, more complex battery.
The old Nickel Cadmium batteries stood a flaw in that they designed a ‘memory’. Each time a user charged the batteries they took a bit smaller charge until they eventually do not take electrical in any way. Even if the batteries are fully drained after each charge as recommended there best endurance concerned a few months.
So-called ‘memory’ has not been a problem with the Lithium Polymer or ion Polymer batteries. This allowed the batteries to last far longer, even years. Mostly these batteries are employed in personal electronics. Your cell phone battery may well be a slim rectangle with two contacts at one end, in which particular case it is one of the most common Lithium-ion Polymer cells.
Remote control hobbyists utilize a different type from the battery that’s composed of two or possibly three cells. Hobbyists favor these batteries because they weight one third what and old Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hybrid battery. This lesser mass joined with an outstanding capacity gave the batter nearly three times the life span.
