LiPo Battery Terminology

As a renowned China-based LiPo battery manufacturer, we understand that navigating the world of LiPo batteries can be overwhelming, especially for those new to the technology. To assist our valued customers in making informed decisions, we have compiled this comprehensive guide to LiPo battery terminology. By familiarizing yourself with these key terms, you will gain a deeper understanding of LiPo batteries and be better equipped to choose the perfect battery for your specific needs. Let’s dive in and explore the terminology that will empower you to make smart battery choices.

Capacity (mAh)

Capacity refers to the amount of charge a LiPo battery can store. It is measured in milliampere-hours (mAh) and represents the total energy the battery can deliver over time. Higher capacity batteries generally offer longer runtimes before requiring recharging.

Voltage (V)

Voltage indicates the electrical potential difference between the positive and negative terminals of the LiPo battery. It is measured in volts (V) and determines the compatibility of the battery with your device. It is essential to choose a LiPo battery with the appropriate voltage to ensure compatibility and optimal performance.

C Rating

The C rating represents the continuous discharge rate of a LiPo battery. It indicates the maximum safe continuous discharge current that the battery can deliver without overheating or compromising its lifespan. Choosing a LiPo battery with a higher C rating ensures it can handle higher current demands for power-hungry applications

Cell Count:

The cell count refers to the number of individual cells within a LiPo battery pack. Each cell typically has a nominal voltage of 3.7V. By connecting multiple cells in series or parallel configurations, you can achieve different voltage and capacity combinations to meet your specific requirements.

Discharge Rate

The discharge rate refers to the rate at which the LiPo battery can deliver its stored energy. It is usually expressed as a multiple of the battery’s capacity (C). For example, a discharge rate of 1C means the battery can deliver its rated capacity over a one-hour period. Higher discharge rates are suitable for applications that require quick bursts of power.


The NTC thermistor is a small temperature-sensitive component integrated into the LiPo battery pack. It acts as a thermal sensor and helps measure the temperature of the battery during charging, discharging, and usage. The NTC thermistor works by changing its resistance based on the battery’s temperature.

Connector Type

The connector type refers to the physical interface used to connect the LiPo battery to your device. Common connector types include JST PHR-2, JST XHP-2, JST ACHR-03V-S, Molex 51021-0300, Molex 78172-0003, XT60, XT90 connectors. It is important to ensure compatibility between the battery’s connector and your device to establish a secure and efficient electrical connection.

Understanding LiPo battery terminology is essential for choosing the right battery for your specific needs. By familiarizing yourself with capacity, voltage, C rating, cell count, discharge rate, connector type, and thermistor, you will be empowered to make informed decisions when selecting a LiPo battery.
