New Large Long-Life Lithium Battery Called XCell

New Large Long-Life Lithium Battery Called XCell

On a recent trip, I visited a battery factory that makes these larger Ampere-Hour (Ah) Lithium Batteries. I’m excited that we can now expand our line of Long-Life Aluminum-Encased Lithium Batteries. Before we found this cell, our highest ‘Ah’ battery was the 220Ah Bright Star cell. Now we have the XCell 277Ah Battery that goes over 3,000 charge cycles before reaching 80% of the original capacity. Additionally the 240Ah XCell Lithium Battery goes over 3,500 charge cycles before reaching the 80% threshold.

This is the fourth different company that makes what I consider our number 1 product; Long-Life Rechargeable Lithium Batteries. We started out with New Energy cells several years ago and then moved on to the Fortune batteries in June of last year. Fortune makes great 60Ah and 100Ah cells which we regularly sell out of soon after we receive a shipment to our offices.


The Bright Star battery came soon after in August of last year. I thought this would be the best battery company I could find because the factory was so impressive and they made larger cells than Fortune could supply. But I think I just might have found the best battery of them all, the XCell battery. I’m always on the lookout for a better performing battery pack and I’m excited to have this new deal with XCell. We get these cells at a lower per-ampere-hour price than either the Fortune or the Bright Star so we are ready to quote you a great price on these new batteries

How a Battery Balancer Works

How a Battery Balancer Works

This is a guide we’ve put together that explains how Battery Balancers work and what improvements are made to the lithium batteries when they are properly balanced. More information can be found under “How the GNE Balancer Works” and “Specification of Battery Balancer” on our website. Please give us your questions and comments about this guide!

How the Balancer Works to Protect Batteries

This diagram tells you how the balancer works. Each battery is compared to a cup. Each balancer is like a pump. With the pumps, all the cups will have the same level of water because the water will flow from the higher cups to the lower ones. The balancers are connected in parallel to the batteries. They won’t affect the charging or discharging of the batteries.

All battery balancers connected to a battery pack interact with each other; not just the neighboring balancers. Suppose there are 4 cells of the following voltages: 3.1V, 3.2V, 3.3V, and 3.4V. Power will be transferred from 3.4V to the other batteries. The lower batteries will be charged by the higher ones. Finally they will reach the same level.
