LiPo (Lithium Polymer) batteries are a great way to power your portable projects (ideal for the Adafruit Feather!). Compared to other battery chemistries they're more compact, lighter and offer a consistent voltage output (rather than constantly dropping like other types!). They also offer higher rates of discharge which is ideal for high-power projects.
This is the smallest LiPo battery we offer, with a capacity of 500mAh (3.7V) with a 2-pin JST-PH connector on a 100mm cable. ideal for small projects and wearables!
The batteries include internal protection against over-charging or under-voltage, which makes the battery out at around 3V. You should still use a dedicated LiPo charger with protection built-in - we recommend the Adafruit Micro Lipo as it has a convenient USB tail, a safe charge rate and a three-stage battery conditioning/charge cycle.

Always Check Polarity!
Not all devices follow the same polarity so always (always!) double-check the LiPo battery port polarity on your device before connecting a battery. If the polarity (+ and -) is different to the battery, consider switching the JST connector wires over.
Important! Lithium batteries require careful storage and usage, and must only be charged/discharged within the ratings listed. Please only consider purchasing this item if you have the knowledge and equipment to use and maintain these batteries properly. If you accidentally damage (bend/pierce/crush/dent) these batteries, stop using them immediately and dispose of them safely and responsibly.
- Never carry loose batteries – they should be suitably boxed/protected at all times when not in use
- Do not short batteries
- Always use a battery charger or circuit board charging module specifically designed for Lithium batteries (such as the Micro Lipo)
- Do not use a NiMH/NiCad/lead-acid charger with these batteries!
- Never leave a battery charger unattended
- Never completely discharge batteries
- All batteries should be checked for damage regularly
- Do not expose to extremes of heat or cold, or sudden fluctuations between the two
- Always dispose of end-of-life batteries at your local WEEE recycling centre
