Figure 3-2: The button cell. The button cell offers small size and ease of stacking but does not allow fast charging. Coin cells, which are similar in appearance, are normally lithium-based and are non-rechargeable. Photograph courtesy of Sanyo Corporation; design courtesy of Panasonic OEM Battery Sales Group, March 2001. The Prismatic Cell The prismatic cell was developed in response to consumer demand for thinner pack sizes. Introduced in the early 1990’s, the prismatic cell makes almost maximum use of space when stacking.

Such situations must be avoided at all times. The manufacturers are often at a loss when it comes to replacing these batteries under warranty. Li-ion batteries with cobalt electrodes, for example, require full safety protection. A major concern arises if static electricity or a faulty charger has destroyed the battery’s protection circuit. Such damage often causes the solid-state switches to fuse in a permanent ON position without the user’s knowledge. A battery with a faulty protection circuit may function normally but does not provide the required safety.

Commercial Li-ion battery packs contain a protection circuit that prevents the cell voltage from going too high while charging. 30V/cell. In addition, temperature sensing disconnects the charge if the internal temperature approaches 90°C (194°F). Most cells feature a mechanical pressure switch that permanently interrupts the current path if a safe pressure threshold is exceeded. Internal voltage control circuits cut off the battery at low and high voltage points. Exceptions are made on some spinel (manganese) packs containing one or two small cells.
