What Are Lithium Battery Seals?

Lithium battery seals preserve battery life by preventing the loss of electrolytes. A lithium battery glass-to-metal sealed lid is extremely effective in making a good seal.

Why Lithium Battery Seals Are Important

During normal use, a battery generates gas. This won’t be a problem unless the pressure inside the battery gets too high. Without a way to release the gas, the cell could rupture and damage the battery.

Specially-made battery end seals solve this problem by providing a low-pressure venting system. The battery end has a gasket that seals onto the cell. That gasket has a vent mechanism to release pressure, protecting the battery from damage.

Caring for a Lithium Battery

Lithium battery seals prolong the life of your battery but you can also protect it by making sure it doesn’t get too hot. Keep these things in mind:

  • Provide space between the battery and any heat source.
  • Keep your battery away from transistors and transformers.
  • Try to keep your battery between 20-25 degrees Celcius.
  • Place your battery near an air inlet rather than an exhaust vent.

We offer a wide range of sealing technologies, including glass-to-metal lids that are highly reliable and can handle high electrical currents as well as electrochemical corrosion. If you are looking for a custom-made product, contact us.
