New Electronic-Modul for Lithium
Diving Sports: As an extension of the product range "Electronics for underwater lights for divers", a new module is available now. Due to its very low standby-currentconsumption, it allows the use of lithium batteries in combination with halogen- or HLX-bulbs.
The first essential difference compared with the older deliverable modules is the shorter length of 65mm, which is coordinated with standard lithium-cells from type 18650. The overall dimensions are approximately 24x65mm at a height of 15mm.
The second essential difference is the very low standby-current-consumption (light turned off). This is necessary since lithium ion accumulators show on the one hand a very low self-discharge and on the other hand are not allowed to be deep discharged.
Please follow the security instructions for lithium ion accumulators provided by the manufacturers! Lithium is a very reactive light-metal. Lithium-ion-accumulators tend to start burning at wrong treatment or overload and therefore show a considerable potential of danger. As a rule, lithium ion accumulators may not be operated without an additional protection circuit!
