A battery pack which consists of different types of cells (including different manufacturers) A battery that is already fully charged or just slightly discharged. Non-rechargeable batteries (Explosion hazard). Batteries that require a different charge technique from NiCd, NiMh, LiPo or Gel cell (Pb, Lead acid).
  • Page 9 WARNING AND SAFETY NOTES Attention should be paid to the connection of lithium battery especially. Do not attempt to disassemble the battery pack arbitrarily. Please get highlighted that lithium battery packs can be wired in parallel and in series. In the parallel connection, the battery s capacity is calculated by multiplying single battery capacity by the number of cells with total voltage stay the same.
