Why don’t we use the Lead-acidbattery forMiner’s lamp
Most of China’scoalproductioncompanieshaveusedlead-acidbatteriesas a miner’s lamppower supply,in the long-termuseofthiskind of Miner’s lamp, ithassignificantdeficiencies:
(1)largelampsize, heavy weight, will increase the burden on undergroundworkers;
(2)the lampin the useandmaintenanceofleak–prone,internalcorrosion will causespillsandpersonalinjuryaccidents;
(3)extensiveuse of leadandantimonyinlead-acidbatteries,heavy metals,causingseriouspollutionto theenvironment,at present the European Unionand the United Stateshasrestrictedtheproduction of lead-acidbatteries;
(4) the shortcyclelife makes the storage and maintenance more complex.
In recent years,muchnewpoweremerging,nickel-hydrogenbatteries,lithium-ion battery Packhas beenused in a variety ofportableconsumerelectronics,with the developmentoflithium-ionbatterytechnology,theapplicationfield of lithium-ionbatteriesfromphones,MP3,Bluetoothheadsetsand othersmallpowerextendstopowertools,electricbicycle,HEV/EV power supply, such aslargepowersystems.The lithium-ionbatteryin the aboveapplicationareasshowshighenergy density,longcycle lifecharacteristics,powerlead-acid,nickel-hydrogenbatteryperformancehasgreatlyimproved.
Lithium-ionbatteriesare widely used inminer’s lamp
Based on the foregoinganalysis,believe thatlithium-ionbatteriesusedinminer’s lampareasshouldpay attention to the followingaspects:

Lithium ion battery in load electric State Xia, from cathode material in the off embedded out of lithium ion embedded to negative material in the and negative of carbon material combined into lithium carbon compounds, the compounds reaction activity is high, dang battery by extrusion, and acupuncture or appeared internal short-circuit Shi, plus or minus very occurred contact, due to plus or minus very material pressure poor high, plus or minus very contact will quickly reaction and released large of heat, caused battery hot runaway even fire, and explosion, extreme situation appeared.

Due to the characteristics of the lithium-ionbatteryitself,itsoverchargeandshort circuitsituationsprone to thermalrunaway,soprotectioncircuitsfor the miner’s lampbatterysafety–critical,currentlithiumbatteries
Manufacturers attach greatimportance to the protection of circuitboarddesign and development. Due to li ion battery pack itself work voltage platform high, Miner’s lamp with lithium-ion battery without more section battery series using, so protection circuit relative Yu electric tool or electric bike simplified many, coupled with phone battery protection circuit technology after years of development has very mature, so miner’s lamp with lithium-ion battery protection circuit design Shang more need note of is electronic components of reliability filter and the circuit board detection, ensure each miner’s lamp power equipped with of protection circuit board performance stable reliable. Protectioncircuitboarddesignandtestpowerenvironment you need to take fullaccount of Miner’s lamp, withincreasedreliabilitytest underhigh temperature and highhumidityconditions.
From the analysis, we cansee that,althoughtheapplicationfieldoflithium-ionbatteriesin the miner’s lamppower is stillin the initialstage,exposed a number of problems.Butfrom the perspective of the overalldevelopment of Miner’s lamp,lithium-ionbatteriesbecause of itshighenergy density,longcyclelifewill bemarked by a new generationofthepreferredpower supply for the lamp.
