NCR18650BD-Improved, the new Lithium-ion cell

Panasonic Industry’s newest Lithium-Ion cell offers unbeatable performance, safety and cycle life.

The ultimate generation of safe and reliable battery for diverse applications

The new Lithium-ion battery sets the bar high in terms of safety, reliability, performance and cost efficiency. It demonstrates stable performance over a wide range of discharge rate and temperature. If charged at the less stressful 4.15V from the beginning, the improved BD cells do not need State of Health (SOH) check which makes it a more cost efficient and safe solution. It is also the ideal choice when it comes to minimizing the risks of incidents.

Top benefits

Maximum safety

Reduced human risk and damage risk positions your applications as smarter and safer choice.


Higher cost effectiveness in terms of electronic and charging system as SOH check is not required.
