How many years do lithium ion batteries last in an Arc Lighter?
If the voltage of a lithium-ion cell drops below a certain level, the battery is no longer good. Lithium-ion batteries drain, they only last about two years. The battery will not last longer when not in use. So do not avoid using the battery thinking the battery will last five years.
Do lithium ion batteries need to be fully charged before first use?
Li-ion batteries do not need to be fully charged before first use.
According to Battery University, a staggeringly exhaustive resource on the topic, a lithium-ion battery that goes through 100 percent DoD (the user runs it down all the way to zero before recharging) can degrade to 70 percent of its original capacity in 300-500 cycles. With a DoD of 25 percent, where the user plugs a lithium-ion battery in as soon as it gets to 75 percent remaining, that same battery could be charged up to 500 times before it starts to seriously degrade. It is the duty cycle that matters the most.
Lithium-ion batteries despise heat
What's far more dangerous to a battery's well-being is heat. Lithium-ion batteries despise heat.
