Hello there friend! SparkFun will be closed on 8/17/2018 @2pm for a company event. We will not be offering our normal Friday tour or Local Pickups during this time. We will resume normal operations on Monday 8/20/2018. Any orders placed after 2pm MT on 8/17/2018 will be processed when we resume normal operations. Have a great day!
If you need some juice, this 6Ah Lithium Ion Battery is for you. These are very compact batteries based on Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. Each cell outputs a nominal 3.7V at 2000mAh! This solid 3 cell pack (6Ah) comes terminated with a standard 2-pin JST-PH connector - 2mm spacing between pins. Do not attempt to charge these with anything but a charger specifically designed for Lithium Polymer batteries.
These three cells have been matched for internal impedance and can be fully charged and discharged in parallel. 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.
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.
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: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

I use this battery to power the four motors on the Multi-Chassis Basic 4WD and am more than satisfied with its performance. Fully charged it provides around 4V. After using it on and off for weeks it wasn’t even bellow 3.7V yet! A great product that saved me a lot of double A batteries!

The dimensions do not provide a good fit for my project. Purchased a previous battery that was discontinued but fit perfectly with my project.Not sure what other options I have available.

I have bought many items from Spark fun with no issues at all but this one has issues. The JST connector was smashed and not usable at all.
Sorry to hear that your connector got roughed up in transit. If you’ll contact our tech support team, they can get that straightened out for you.
I’m building a small radio transceiver using this as a power source and it’s perfect! Using a Arduino compatible board with built in charger makes for a compact design.
I have had this battery deployed in my solar powered weather station for 20 days. During this time the battery has operated reliably in temperatures ranging from 24 to 60 degrees F and relative humidity ranging from 40% to 98%. I’ve experienced no battery outages during this time.
