There are several factors to consider when selecting the type of battery cell to use in your battery pack design. Looking at the battery requirements and the dimensional space available are important. Another factor that comes up is pricing. The top tier manufacturer brands can be expensive, but there are also comparable solutions in Asia that will reduce the cost.
Occasionally customers have intentions to work with specific brand cells and models for their battery design. At Epec we have an extensive reputation and are partnered with some of the industry best cell manufacturers. We are also assembly approved for the use of top tier brands such as Panasonic and A123.
Another important factor when choosing you battery pack cell is the type of chemistry. There are a number of different chemistries to consider for your battery pack design and all have different specifications and requirements. Our engineering team will work with you to determine the best battery chemistry selection for your application.
Type of Battery Cell Used in Pack Assemblies
More factors that may influence your decision when choosing the proper battery cell include:
- form factor
- power usage vs. energy usage
- operating temperature ranges
- cycle life
- standby operation vs. cyclic operation
- cost vs. performance
Once the application in which the battery pack will be used is fully understood, we can select the applicable chemistry that best suits your needs. Keep in mind that all these factors are all discussed up front when working with Epec's engineering team to help develop a reliable custom battery pack for your end product.
