Lithium Polymer Batteries, usually short for LiPo Batteries, are widely used in a myriad of applications in different fields. In the world of electronics, LiPo batteries are extremely popular and useful owing to their impressive efficiency, stability and safety. This kind of newly-developed batteries can be used to power a great variety of devices, mostly for cell phone, laptop, remote controlled toys and so forth. LiPo batteries can also be typically found in the application of quadcopter batteries, namely drone batteries.

Similar to Lithium-ion batteries, LiPo batteries have a nominal voltage of 3.6 volts. Most Lithium polymer batteries are designed to be very thin rectangle shapes with two tabs on the top. In contrast with Ni-MH batteries and NiCad batteries, LiPo batteries are obviously lighter with better performance to power some RC devices, like drones.

Why is LiPo Battery Safer?
Just as with other lithium-ion cells, LiPos work on the principle of intercalation and de-intercalation of lithium ions from a positive electrode material and a negative electrode material, with the liquid electrolyte providing a conductive medium. To prevent the electrodes from touching each other directly, a microporous separator is in between which allows only the ions and not the electrode particles to migrate from one side to the other. With the improved contruction of battery cells, LiPo batteries can be safely used for devices that demand a battery to run for a long time.

Let’s see a few examples of how LiPo batteries are used in specific applications.
