Batteries

FUNcube-1 will use two Lithium Ion cells that form part of the EPS (Electrical Power System) board that is being provided by GOMspace. For details see http://gomspace.com/documents/gs-ds-batteries.pdf
This type of EPS is capable of providing power directly from the solar panels in the event that, after some time in space, the battery no longer holds its charge. This will permit sunlight only operation of the spacecraft.
