Battery Distribution

Do you need a standard "ready to use" batterypack or just battery cells?
We source our cells and batteries from top of the line manufacturers. Our suppliers are carefully selected based on safety, quality, ‘state of the art’ technologies and lead times.  
 

PRIMARY BATTERIES

Lithium primary batteries also called lithium-metal batteries. 

Bobbin-type LiSOCl2 cells are suited for low-current applications due to their high energy density and very low self-discharge rate, Spiral-type lithium thionyl chloride batteries deliver the energy density demanded by high current pulse applications. The moderate rate cells are similar to bobbin cells but with a higher current capability. Two of the most used chemistries are Lithium Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCL2) VOC 3,67V is one of the highest densities available on the market. Lithium Sulfuryl Chloride (Li-SO2CL2) VOC 3,9V with even higher energy density than the Li-SOCL2 due to the higher voltage. Also increased current capabilities due to higher conductivity of electrodes. 

For the Seismic industry, we supply “off the shelf” Electrochem 3PD0932 non-magnetic lithium primary battery packs (SLB-150) powering Digibird products.

SCHIVE offers “of the shelf” deliveries of Panasonic Alcaline Powerline cells.

RECHARGEABLE(SECONDARY) BATTERIES

A rechargeable battery, storage battery, secondary cell, or accumulator is a type of cells and batteries that can be charged, discharged into a load, and recharged many times. as opposed to a disposable or primary battery, which is supplied fully charged and discarded after.

Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) cells and batteries.

Chemistry, performance, cost and safety characteristics vary across Lithium-Ion types. The most common chemistries are Lithium-Ion Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2), which offers high energy density but presents higher safety risks, Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), Lithium-Ion manganese oxide (LiMn2O4,Li2MnO3 or LMO)Lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide(LiNiMnCoO2) or NMC),  offer lower energy density but longer lives and less likelihood of fire or explosion. Such batteries are widely used for electric tools, medical equipment, and other roles. NMC is a leading contender for automotive applications. Lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (LiNiCoAlO2 or NCA). Lithium titanate (Li4Ti5O12 or LTO) and the newer Lithium Sulfur (Li-S).

Lithium Polymer (LiPo or LIP) is of Lithium-Ion technology using a polymer electrolyte instead of a liquid electrolyte.

We have selection of commonly used lithium-ion and lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries in different configurations, designed in-house, with the UN certification in place. Throughout our cooperation with Norwegian company Mascot Electronics, we can offer high quality battery chargers, optimized for your battery, with all relevant certifications including medical.

Lead acid batteries (VRLA, AGM, GEL). SCHIVE offers pbq batteries to customers where high quality and long life is important. The batteries are manufactured in ISO certified environments and a very strict, Mil-Std 105B is used for incoming goods inspection. In the VRLA range this includes special VdS approved batteries, Cyclic (deep discharge) batteriesHigh Rate batteriesMono-blocks and Front Access models

Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) cells and battery packs is a part of our business. This 1,2V rechargeable chemistry has quite high energy density and contains no heavy metals. It is considered environmentally friendly. NiMH has replaced most NiCD batteries over the last decade. One disadvantage of the NiMH cell is that it has a high rate of self-discharge.
