What is a High Discharge Battery?

The high discharge rate is representative of the charge and discharge capability of the lithium-ion polymer battery with respect to the ordinary rate. The high-rate battery is divided into a discharge rate and a charge rate, and "C" is used to indicate the ratio of the charge and discharge current of the battery, that is the rate. For example, a 1200 mAh battery, 0.2 C means 240 mA (0.2 mA of the 1200 mAh battery), and 1 C means 1200 mA (1 times rate of the 1200 mAh battery). Normally high discharge rate batteries can be fast charged. However, since lithium ions are embedded in the negative electrode graphite during charging, the process of inserting lithium ions into the positive electrode during the discharge process is difficult, so the fast charge ratio is generally lower than the discharge rate.

Performance Specification

Compare With Normal Battery
Normal Battery VS High C rate Battery
Normal Battery VS High C Rate Battery

Due to the high-rate battery use the electrode material which is favorable for high-rate discharge, the internal resistance design of the electrode is smaller than that of the ordinary battery, so the rate battery have high discharge platform, high discharge efficiency, and high output power and energy.

Why you need High Discharge Rate Battery?

If the ordinary battery is fast charged, it is easy to cause lithium stripping of the negative electrode, which leads to an accelerated deterioration of the battery performance. In severe cases, the internal short circuit leads a fire explosion of the battery may occur. Most consumer applications require only 1C of battery, you should choose high discharge battery that if you need higher discharge rates and faster charging times. With the development of various industries, the demand for higher discharge and faster-charging requirements for batteries is increasing constantly.

At present, high-rate batteries are widely used in aerial drones, agricultural plant protection drones, emergency start power supplies, model aircraft, power tools and etc.
