Previously manufactured by Sony Energy – Murata purchased Sony’s battery division in 2017. Newer production of cells are marked Murata and not SE (Sony Energy). Older cells will show SE printing.
This Sony/MuRata VTC5A cell is the “Batman” type of cell for those that need and require Ultra-High Discharge/Drain cells in the 18650 form factor size. It is a more safe and extremely reliable cell due to the NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) chemistry type. This allows it to maintain very stable temperatures under such extreme high discharge/drain (up to 40 AMP PULSE).
To ensure longevity, it is not recommended to allow the battery to discharge below 2.5V.
Please note that due to their inherent safety, IMR cells don’t have a protection circuit built in. They should never be discharged below 2.5 volts or cycle life/performance will be reduced. Maximum charge voltage is 4.25 volts.
|Protected:||NO, UNPROTECTED. This cell is unprotected and intended for use in protected battery packs only and NOT individually or as a standalone product. In order to operate safely it must have additional protection in the form of a PCB (protection circuit board) or BMS (battery management system), which is not included.|
|Discharge Current:||25A Maximum Continuous, 35A Maximum Continuous with an 80deg C cutoff|
|Approximate Dimensions:||18.2mm x 65mm|
|Specification Datasheet:||Murata VTC5A Datasheet|
