Yes, I'd like to know that too!
Please post links where you found them.
I'm intrigued by batteries
which seem to contradict the chemistry used in them😲
LiFe (LiFePo4) cells have a nominal voltage
Li-Ion have a nominal voltage
of 3.6 to 3.85 V,
They are a derivative of LiFe, which simply defines the metals used in the positive terminal; lithium + a Ferrous compound
Used in electric
cars, military and aerospace.
LiPo (Lithium Polymer) have a nominal cell voltage
They are also a variant of LiFe. The 'polymer' part simply refers to the material of the separator used to prevent electrode particles passing from from one to the other. it only allows Ion exchange, i.e. current flow. Hence in effect you can regard all of these rechargeable Lithium types as 'Li-Ion' batteries
Used in Laptops, notebooks, mobile phones / tablets etc, and of course RC model
There ARE 1.5V Lithium batteries
, Li-FeS2, BUT they use Lithium metal as the anode and are NOT rechargeable!! Nominal voltage
Used as a high current, long storage life substitute for alkaline AA and AAA cells providing about two and a half times the energy
of the alkaline. Similar not rechargeable chemistry, using other compound
s of manganese (most common), copper, iron to name but a few, is also used in typical 3V Lithium button cells.
1.5V rechargeable suggests to me an alkaline battery
, produced by RAYOVAC some years ago. I still have a few of their C size cells kicking about. Don't have a very good 'power to weight
ratio' compared to modern LiPos though.🤔
