Lithium battery charge voltage

Post by acmotor » Sun, 01 Mar 2009, 19:44

It is not easy finding information about the charge voltage to take lithium batteries to.
There is reference on the net to anything from 3.8 to 4.35 Vpc.

Manufacturers e.g. TS suggest anywhere from 4.2 to 4.35 depending on which page you are reading at the time.
My interest was about the affect of this actual number on battery life.

Here is a reference to this (although generic lithium)

I wasn't able to get hold of the full paper by Choi.
Anyone have access to it ?
