In order to operate properly, individual Li-ion cells are
mechanically and electrically integrated in battery assemblies
specific to each application. The battery assembly
incorporates electronics for performance, thermal and
safety management.

Battery assembly
• Graphite-based anode
• Lithium Cobalt oxide-based cathode
• Electrolyte: organic solvents
• Built-in redundant safety protections
(shutdown separator, circuit breaker, safety vent)
• Batteries assembled from MP cells feature an electronic
protection circuit

Built-in protection devices ensure safety in case of:
• Do not disassemble
• Do not remove the protection circuit
• Do not incinerate
Transportation and storage:
•Store in a dry place at a temperature preferably not
exceeding 30°C
•For long-term storage, keep the battery within a
30 ± 15 % state of charge
