Isothermal charging/discharging experiment

  • Type of sample: Coin Cell LiR2032
  • Isothermal mode with temperature
    set at 40°C
  • Charging/Discharging cycle
    Constant current Constant voltage
    (CC-CV) – 40 mA from 4.2 V to 3.0 V

The data shows that charging is characterized by a short endotherm followed by a small exothermic reaction while discharging is characterized by a long exothermic reaction. Cycles are reliably repeatable.

The same data was used to calculate the cell efficiency during charging and discharging.
