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 cells outputs a nominal 3.7V at 850mAh! 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 LiPo 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.

This is a nice little LiPo cell and the USB charger I bought works well with this cell. As it turns out, however, I need a higher voltage so I’ll need even smaller cells to connect in series. Probably three or four 300Ah cells will work.
I was sick and tired of buying poor quality cells from the RC arena. It was great to find a cell from a quality manufacturer that had a protection module. This is a quality cell, not junk sold to the RC market.
They also follow the proper shipping regulations for lithium cells. This is a good thing.
I will continue to buy cells from Spark Fun.
I am using this for a wearable project. It is just the right size and holds a charge for a long time.
