8.PCM Specification


Test Condition

Over charge Protection

The battery should be charged under 4.0V/1C.The charging should be shut off when the internal cell voltage becomes more than the specified protection voltage.

Overs discharge Protection

The battery should be discharged with 1C. The discharging should be shut off when the internal cell voltage becomes less than the specified protection voltage.

Short protection

After rated charge,(+) and (-) terminals are connected with 10mΩ mental resistor or equivalence.


9. Handling of cells

    Prohibition short circuit

    Never make short circuit cell. It generates very high current which causes heating of the cells and may cause electrolyte leakage are very dangerous.

    The Li-Fe tabs may be easily short-circuited by putting them on conductive surface.

    Such outer short circuit may lead to heat generation and damage of the cell.

    An appropriate circuitry with PCM shall be employed to protect accidental short circuit of the battery pack.


10. Notice for designing battery pack

   10.1 Pack toughness

Battery pack should have sufficient styength and the Li-Fe cell inside should be protected from mechanical shocks.

   10.2 Cell fixing

   The Li-Fe cell should be fixed to the battery pack by its large surface area.

   No cell movement in the battery pack should be allowed.

   10.3 Inside design

   No sharp edge components should be insides the pack containing the Li-Fe cell.

   10.4 Tab connection

   Spot welding is recommended for Li-Fe tab connection method.

   Battery pack should be designed that shear force are not applied to the Li-Fe tabs.

   If apply manual solder met hod to connect tab with PCM.below notice is very important to ensure battery performance:

(1) The solder iron should be temperature controlled and ESD safe;

(2) Soldering temperature should not exceed 350℃;

(3) Soldering time should not be longer than 3s;

(4) Soldering times should not exceed 5 times, Keep battery tab cold down before next time soldrictly g;

(5) Directly heat cell body is strictly prohibited, Battery may damaged by heat above approx.100℃.

   10.5 For mishaps

         Battery pack should be designed not to generate heat even when leakage occurs due to mishaps.

(1) Isolate PCM (Protection Circuit Module) form leaked electrolyte as perfectly as perfectly as possible.

(2) Avoid narrow spacing between bare circuit patterns with different voltage.(Including around connector)

(3) Li-Fe battery should not have liquid from electrolyte, but in case if leaked electrolyte as possible touch bare circuit patterns, higher potential terminal material may dissolve and precipitate at the lower potential terminal,and may cause short circuit, The design of the PCM must have this covered.


11.Storing the Batteries

     The batteries should be stored at room temperature, charged to about 30% to 50% of capacity.

We recommend that batteries be charged about once per half a year to prevent over discharge.


12.Period of Warranty

     The period of warranty is half a year from the date of shipment. BCC guarantees to give a replacement in case of cells with defects proven due to manufacturing process instead of the customer abuse and misuse, and also bear part of the shipment fee.
