The aim of this experiment is to investigate the question of “How temperature effects on power of battery in a circuit?” Lithium batteries which we use commonly on daily life, are used in this investigation to explore temperature effects on power of lithium batteries. Batteries have 1.5V electric potential. Their size is rated as D and IEC(International Electrotechnical Commission) code is R20. The temperature of a battery increased slowly by using water bath and measured its value by using digital surface thermometer. The data collected in certain points of temperature. Battery was put in a circuit and made the circuit running with closing the circuit. The ammeter attached to the circuit in series and voltmeter attached to parallel to the battery. The cables and battery which was used in the experiment covered with water-proof material to prevent the possible negative effect because batteries and certain parts of cables need to be in the water to prevent any measurement error. The usage of water-proof material ensured healthy experimentation. In this experiment, data retrieved when the temperature of battery reached to 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 550C. Data that recorded in this experiment are ampere, voltage, resistance of the circuit and temperature of battery. These data are measured by a multi-meter which can measure DC current, potential difference (voltage), temperature and resistance. The calculation according to the value of current and voltage was made for obtaining the power of battery. Differences of power of battery were observed according to result and in the graph due to temperature changes. Results show that the power of battery increases proportionally with the temperature of the battery between 10.00C and 57.00C.
