Can the batteries be mounted in any position?

 

Yes. Dragonfly Energy battery packs are composed of individual stainless steel cells that are mounted and reinforced so that they are not free to move around. In general, the orientation of a battery may be important because of the liquid electrolyte that exists inside the battery. In the case of lead acid batteries, this electrolyte is sulfuric acid; and the orientation of battery is critical to prevent leakage of the acid. Although there exists a small amount of a liquid organic (but not acidic) electrolyte inside each Li-ion cell that comprises Dragonfly Energy packs, the electrolyte is fully soaked within the nanopowder electrodes that fully fill the sealed cells. Therefore, the orientation of the cells is not relevant to the safety and performance of the batteries.
