Howdy - I can't seem to find much good information regarding lithium polymer cells. I've had to piece together little bits and pieces from all over the Internets. What I'm curious about is how temperature effects LiPo cells. I did find one nice graph showing discharge curves for LiPo cells - and it's pretty dramatic - they show that you get more than double the discharge capacity when operating at 60 deg C than at -20 deg C. But what about if you cool down a battery, then heat it back up, and then use it? Does that affect capacity? What about for charging - can you charge a cool pack normally? etc etc.
Anybody know a good resource for this sort of information? LiPo datasheets seem to be fairly useless!
