NH2054 is a winner
The Inspired Energy NH2054 Lithium Ion Smart battery is proving to be a real winner, with energy density benefits over other established 14.4V stablemates such as the NL2024 and NL2044.
To understand why this is, you need to go back a few years to when the NL2024 and NL2044 were introduced. They were launched with the latest 2.2Ah 18650 sized Lithium ion cells and with twelve of them configured in a 4 Series, 3 Parallel configuration, storing a massive 95Wh in a relatively small space.
Later, international transportation regulations were introduced that imposed a glass ceiling at 100Wh with any Lithium ion battery >100Wh having to be shipped as class 9 dangerous goods. Class 9 shipping makes transportation far more complex and expensive for manufacturers and OEMs alike and is to be avoided where possible.
The NL2024 and NL2044 were therefore limited to using 2.2Ah cells as any increase in capacity would raise them above the 100Wh limit.
However, 18650 cell capacities have increased, and cells are now available at 3.1Ah and 3.4Ah cells are coming very soon.
This has brought the Inspired Energy 8 cell models to the fore. Configured with 4 cells in series and 2 in parallel - providing 89.3Wh when using 3.1Ah cells and 97.9Wh when the 3.4Ah cells are introduced they do the same job as their older stable mates but with far more style!
What does this mean to OEMs? - Well for a start, these new eight cell batteries are around 33% lighter than the 12 cells models - they are also 32% lower in volume. - this allows OEMS to make their products lighter and smaller - something that gives any portable device manufacture a competitive advantage.
As the sole distributor for the wide range of Inspired Energy standard smart batteries, chargers and accessories we are pleased to be offer all of the products in the range - but we know that the NH2054 is going to be the product of choice when OEMs look to design the next generation of power hungry portable equipment.
The NH2054HD31 is currently in stock at Accutronics and is ready to ship. If you need your NH2054 with a custom label or custom firmware then please talk to us about your exact requirements.
