1] Voltage: 3.6V or 3.7V
Are all 18650 lithium ion battery cells 3.6 or 3.7 voltsor are there different voltage Lithium Ion cells?
2] Possible Voltage Shortage?
Do all 3.6/3.7V li ions work the same standard way with a
- and a
T or do they really differ? What does the
T stand for? Temperature sensor?
3] Physics Voltage Reason
Why do we see only 3.6/3.7 V per Li Ion Cell, and never 3.0V or 4 V per cell? I am very curious...
4] Parallel Charging of many Li Ion Cells
I was thinking of putting two, or four of those Panasonic/Sanyo 18650 Li Ion cells in parallel, soldering together from the instant the are new, that way giving me lots of mAhs. Can I use the same Li Ion charger that was made for charging just 1 cell, and let it be in the charger for longer time?
5] Charging... How?
I found a nice small cheap charger about 30~40$ called Turnigy Accucel-6 (there is also an Accucel-8 for double price and double weight). Could I attach the + to + of all the cells and the - to all the - poles of the cells without needing any extra in-between-wiring?
Thanks a lot for your opinion.
