The cylindrical LIR-18500 or 18500 Lithium-Ion cell is among the most popular size of lithium-ion cells ('18' denotes the diameter and '500' the length in millimetres and tenth's of a millimetre respectively). It has become the workhorse for the laptop computer industry. This standard size is widely adopted as the power source of choice for other portable electronic devices such as cellular phones, digital cameras, power tools and many other applications. 

Our LIR-18500 cells are ideal for battery pack builders, computer laptop repairs, 7.4 volt remote controlled (RC) car battery packs etc.

Do not solder on to these LIR18500 cells - it is not recommended by the manufacturer. These cells are inflammable and heat can undermine the integrity of the seals. These bare cells are for spot welding.

This LIR-18500 requires the use of protection circuitry to keep the battery from over-charging, over-discharging, or over-heating. You will require knowledge of how to safely charge Li-ion cells. Failure to treat the cell correctly may cause it to become hot, explode or ignite. We cannot be held responsible for damage or injury caused by misuse of Li-Ion batteries.

The lithium-ion technology used in these cylindrical LIR-18500 cell is light-weight and high voltage. It results in significantly higher energy density than NiCd and NiMH batteries.

The lithium-ion technology used in these cylindrical LIR-18500 cell has no 'memory-effect'.
