Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (LiNiMnCoO2 or NMC) Rechargeable Battery Cells
Standard 18650 and 20700, and by request other, format rechargeable battery cells.
Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide: LiNiMnCoO2. cathode, graphite anode.
3.60V, 3.70V nominal; typical operating range 3.0–4.2V/cell, or higher
Specific energy (capacity)
0.7–1C, charges to 4.20V, some go to 4.30V; 3h charge typical. Charge current above 1C shortens battery life.
1C; 2C possible on some cells; 2.50V cut-off
1000–2000 (related to depth of discharge, temperature)
210°C (410°F) typical. High charge promotes thermal runaway
E-bikes, medical devices, EVs, industrial
Provides high capacity and high power. Serves as Hybrid Cell. Favorite chemistry for many uses; market share is increasing. Leading system; dominant cathode chemistry.
