SparkFun Electronics will be closed on November 26, 2020 and November 27, 2020 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will begin normal operations at 9:00 AM Mountain Time on November 30, 2020.
This is a very small, extremely lightweight battery based on Polymer Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. Each cells outputs a nominal 3.7V at 110mAh but limited to a 2C discharge! Comes terminated with a standard 2-pin JST-PH connector - 2mm spacing between pins. These batteries require special charging. Do not attempt to charge these with anything but a specialized Lithium Polymer charger.
What sets this battery apart from our other 110mAh battery is that fact that it was truly made for e-textiles projects. With no risk to short out and a low current delivery, the E-Textiles Battery will cut off in the range of 240-380mA making this the safest option to power electronics sewn into pieces of fabric.
Battery includes built-in protection against over voltage, over current, and minimum voltage.
Note: This battery is not available to ship to Alaska or Hawaii, or through any express services (2-day, overnight), or internationally. This is temporary! Check out our blog post for more information. Additionally orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
Note: This item is non-returnable. If this item arrives damaged or is not functioning properly, please do not hesitate to contact us to see if further actions may be taken.
NOTE: The protection circuit in this battery trips at about 250mA.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

We use these batteries in our evaluation product we provide to customers. We bought several hundreds of the batteries to date and didn't experience any issues with them.
I powered a golf sweater that included a lilypad arduino, lilypad accelerometer, 5 leds constantly on, and 12 more leds that were powered from time to time (a golf swing meter). The battery did the job for a good portion of the golf outing, longer than I expected. No problems at all (although they're right you need to use pliers to remove the connector). The lilypad USB makes it simple to charge.
The battery itself is good but the wires break easily
Great size and good power.
