These are very slim, extremely light weight batteries based on Lithium Ion chemistry. Each cell outputs a nominal 3.7V at 1000mAh! 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.
Battery includes built-in protection against over voltage, over current, and minimum voltage. Please use caution when using this battery in wearable projects. When using conductive thread, a short in the thread can create sparks and heat. We recommend using coin cell batteries for beginners.

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: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

I use a 1000mAh LiPo in each of my solar-powered weather stations. The size is so small that they fit nicely in the 3.5" x 2.5" enclosures that I'm using, yet they provide more than enough power for frequent temp/humidity/barometric pressure readings.
Nice battery. Doing a great job as a replacement in a Fiio E17 headphone amp. Super service! Only minor point is the high shipping costs to Europe.
Used a couple of these batteries in my Game Boy Null builds (retropie emulator). If fit my dimensions perfectly and I get about 2.5 hours of play time (1 battery) with a 2.8" screen. It actually recharges from 0 to 100% fairly quickly which is really nice.
I like having the protection circuitry built into the battery. I have used these batteries for a long time. I never had any problems, or any reason to question their advertised capacity.
