SparkFun will be closed Nov 26th and 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday. Orders placed after 2:00pm MT on the 25th will ship out Monday the 30th.
Description: These are very slim, extremely light weight batteries based on the new Polymer Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. 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.
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping these batteries, only two batteries can be shipped together at one time and orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Note: Although these cells are rated for 2C continuous discharge, the wiring and connectors are only rated up to 1A, so be sure to take that into account when determining your power requirements.
Note: Be careful with the JST connectors. They can stick in pretty good and tugging on them can damage the connector. Check this tutorial for an easy way to remove them safely.

I bought two of these to use with a batch of Qduino Minis. After letting it charge, I was able to run the Qduino for five days off of the battery! I never really noticed any heat issues or anything like that. Purchasing two at a time kind of stinks, but I plan to get more.
My Bluetooth GPS lives in the car, therefore the battery dies a horrible death every 3 years or so, and this battery is a great replacement for it, never had any problems with it and runtime seems just fine.
Been using these for a couple of weeks and don’t have any issues to report. They charge up quick and have been running my photons for the better part of a day when unplugged. I haven’t done any formal testing to verify its claims, but just from my observation its working just fine.
Battery fine. I forgot that LiPo battery delivery has restrictions that increase cost and delay. I guess this is a fact I need to live with.
Ordered this to fit dimensionally in a space that had a 280mAh LiP cell . My dashboard camera/Backup camera rig now operates 14 hours without getting power from the car. Ar$eholes BEWARE! Big Brother is watching!!!

I haven’t tested the under voltage protection, but it’s a great idea. The price is comparable to other retailers. I’m not sure why they are always so high.
Ordered two of these to use in a “Lost Model Tracker” receiver and transmitter both with “LoRa” modules (Long Range 433 MHz). What great customer service - ordered Wed. Packed and shipped Wed. (UPS Worldwide Express Saver) and I received them on Friday.
All the way from Colorado USA to Mid-Wales UK and superbly packed as well.
Connected this battery to my Edison mini-breakout board. The header is a tight fit and the holes are almost a too wide but applying a little pressure it will fit.
this battery is delivering the power I need in a small package. still in the early prototype stage but I think it is going to be the production package.
