General Description

The SBP-1100e Smart Battery Power System is a rugged, state of the art, lightweight, high energy density, rechargeable, 

portable power system that is an ideal solution for even the most demanding of applications. The SBP-1100e can be 

used as a source of power for applications such as communications equipment as well as 1100 Energy’s infrared sig-

naling and marking products. Based upon Lithium-Ion battery cell chemistry, the SBP-1100e delivers power with much 

less weight and bulk than traditional battery systems. 
The SBP-1100e power output provides a regulated DC voltage for running various types of equipment for diverse appli-

cations. Capable of providing up to about 300 watts of power, the SBP-1100e can store up to 1100 watt-hours of energy 

internally, of which up to about 1000 watt-hours can be delivered to an external load before a recharge is needed. The 

system can power, for example, a 100 watt load for about ten hours, or lesser loads for proportionately longer periods of 

time using its stored energy.
The SBP-1100e provides graceful degradation of performance in the event that one or more Lithium-Ion battery units 

within the system should fail; the energy storage capacity will decrease proportionately, instead of resulting in system 

failure.

during solar charging; and afterwards, using the stored energy. In using input power available to the SBP-1100e, priority 

is given to supplying power to the equipment load, and any additional input power which may be available is used to 

charge the internal batteries, until the batteries are fully charged. So long as some stored energy in the SBP-1100e is 

availabletopowertheequipmentload,fluctuationsintheinputvoltageandpowerwillnotaffecttheloadequipment.

watts on a continuous basis. If continuous power in excess of 300 watts is required, consult 1100 Energy.
Connect the SBP-1100e power output jack on the right side of the unit to the load using the provided cable or other 

approved cable. A short output cable terminated with ring terminals, provided by 1100 Energy, may be used to con-

nectwithanother,longer,user-providedcableifappropriate.User-specifiedextensioncablesshouldbeofawiregauge

adequate to avoid an excessive voltage drop in the extension cable.
The panel display may be controlled to show the voltage, current and an estimate of the remaining battery pack charge 

as a percentage of the charge capacity. The SBP-1100e may be used to provide power to a load while the battery pack 

is being charged.
If the SBP-1100e becomes fully discharged, and the output cuts off, a small amount of residual stored energy will 

maintain functionality of the user interface for one hour or more. This feature is partly for user convenience during at-

tended operation and testing, and it also keeps the serial control and monitor interface functioning. If no new charge is 

added after the output cuts off, the user interface will cut off as well, after 30 minutes, and the unit will then appear to 

be totally dead, with no power output, no display, and no response to button pressing. The SBP-1100e is in hibernation.

However, the user interface will come back to life within 3 seconds after external power is applied, and after a suitable 

period of charging, the SBP-1100e battery pack may again be used normally. In the event that charging power is applied 

aftertheoutputhasbeencutoff,thestateofchargemustrisetoabout15%beforetheoutputwillbeturnedonagain.

This display will persist for eight seconds, during which time the ‘SELECT’ button may be pressed to toggle the power 

output ‘on’ and ‘off’. That is, if the power output is ‘on’, pressing “SCROLL’ once will turn it off, and if the power output is 

‘off’, pressing “SCROLL’ once will turn it on. The change in output voltage and current resulting from turning the output

The SBP-1100e has a very high power and energy density. Mishandling may present a risk of fire or explosion. Exer-

cise common sense precautions when handling, transporting, or testing. DO NOT OPEN the battery pack case and 

replace individual cells or modules. Usage should be carefully coordinated with 1100 Energy to ensure proper opera-

tion and safety.

charging, or discharged to the point of output cut-off in the case of discharging, assuming that charging or discharging 

continues at the present rate.

hibernation mode, the control panel is not active and there will be no response to button presses. The SBP-1100e will 

come out of hibernation mode and the user interface will come back to life within three seconds after external power is 

applied, or usually, if RESET is pressed.
In the example below, the unit is taking in power on the input connector, and if it continues at this rate it will be fully 

chargedinapproximately4.5hours.

In the example below, the unit is discharging, and if it continues at this rate it will be fully discharged in approximately 

3.0 hours. 

Dschging  3.0HR

In the example below, the unit is neither charging nor discharging, and is not powering a load, and thus is said to be 

‘idle”.

Idle

In the example below, the unit is both charging or discharging, that is, some internal batteries are being charged while 

others are being discharged.

Prolonged storage at a high state of charge will degrade the storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries.

Outdoor use

The SBP-1100e is weather-resistant and ruggedly packaged, but when used outdoors, it should not be left fully exposed 

to the weather, if it can be avoided. Direct sun can cause overheating, and prolonged exposure to sun, rain, snow, salt 

spray, dust and wind-blown debris may accelerate deterioration of the case and control panel. Some covering, such as a 

rain-shedding, sun-blocking tarp or lean-to should be provided, and the covering should allow for some natural circula-

tion of air around the SBP-1100e case during hot weather.
If the SBP-1100e is to be used in extremely hot or extremely cold outdoor environments, shallow burial of the unit in the 

earth will moderate the temperature extremes. Shallow burial might also be used as a means of hiding the SBP-1100e. 

Since the earth may tend to become saturated with water from time to time due to rain, some waterproof protective 

wrapping or bagging, and/or provision for drainage, may be desirable.

Lithium-Ion

Lithium-Ion packs, unlike Lead-Acid batteries, do not have to be fully charged before use. If charging is stopped prior to 

full charge, the SBP-1100e can be discharged without diminishing cycle life. In addition, unlike NiCd and NiMH batter-

ies, Li-Ion batteries can be recharged at any state-of-charge without degradation to the battery’s cycle life performance 

andwithoutmemory(voltagedepression)problems.
The ideal usage pattern for lithium-ion batteries is to be charged and discharged on a daily to weekly cycle, as would be 

typical of a solar panel-based application. Prolonged storage at a high state of charge should be avoided, as it degrades 

batterycapacity,butprolongedstorageatamoderateorlowstateofcharge(40%orless),orinafullydischargedstate,

is not harmful. All batteries, including lithium-ion batteries, will slowly self-discharge while in storage. After several 

months in storage, lithium-ion batteries may go dead, but the batteries can be readily brought back to life by applying a 

suitable ‘wake-up’ charging regimen. The SBP-1100e automatically applies the ‘wake-up’ charge regimen when appro-

priate, and when charging power is made available. The SBP-1100e should be ready for normal use after a couple of 

hours of ‘wake-up’ charging from a dead state, although it will take longer than two hours to reach full charge.
