Gleichmann Electronics Announces Lithium Ion Manganese Accumulator Packs

Lithium ion-manganese accumulator packs with capacities of 600 mAh and 200 Ah are now extending the distribution portfolio of Gleichmann Electronics. The accumulators are developed and manufactured by Batterien-Montage-Zentrum (BMZ) and feature approximately 40% less weight compared to nickel cadmium or nickel metal hybrid accumulators packs. For example: a 14,4V-accumulator pack with 3 Ah of capacity has a weight of only 540 gram.

Another advantage of the lithium ion manganese accumulator packs is that their full capacity remains available over 1000 charge and discharge cycles. Even after 1 year without usage these accumulators keeps nearly the full capacity; to discharge it without usage takes as long as 4 to 5 years.

The specific energy of the lithium ion manganese accumulators of 90 Wh/kg to 120 Wh/kg is twice as high as the specific energy of nickel cadmium accumulators with a comparable capacity. These newly developed accumulators provide a nearly constant output voltage over the entire discharge period which extends the nominal voltage of 3,6V per accumulator pack.

The environment-friendly lithium ion manganese accumulators are usable in the temperature range from -20°C to +70°C.
