The demand for the development of secondary batteries capable of high capacity, high output, and long-term operation that can be charged and discharged is rapidly increasing with the proliferation of electronic devices, portable computers, portable telephones, PDAs, and the like. As the computer industry develops rapidly, secondary batteries are also becoming thinner and smaller in accordance with the trend of high performance, high stability, and simplification and portability of precision electrical and electronic products.

A battery basically refers to a device that converts chemical energy of a material into electrical energy through an electrochemical reaction. In addition, the secondary battery is a term for a rechargeable battery whose energy conversion can be reversibly, that is, a battery can be recharged after one use (discharge) and continue to be used.

The lithium secondary battery includes a cathode current collector to which the positive electrode activating material is applied, a negative electrode current collector to which the negative electrode activating material is applied, and an electrode assembly to which the separator interposed therebetween is stacked and wound to accommodate an electrode assembly.

Lithium oxide is used as a positive electrode activation material, and a carbon material is generally used as a negative electrode activation material.

Lithium secondary batteries are divided into cans and pouches according to the shape of the case in which the electrode assembly is accommodated, and the cans may be divided into squares and cylinders.

On the other hand, when the lithium secondary battery is charged to 4.5V or more, the electrolyte inside the battery is decomposed to form gas, which leads to an unstable state. The gas formed increases the internal pressure of the cell, which may involve leakage of the electrolyte. In addition, when the battery is discharged below a certain voltage, copper, which is the current collector of the negative electrode, begins to dissolve into the electrolyte, thereby degrading the performance of the battery.

Therefore, in order to solve such a problem, the lithium secondary battery has a protection circuit for securing safety and reliability by preventing safety accidents caused by overcharge, overdischarge, overcurrent, and the like.

The cap assembly 300 is formed by molding a portion of the upper surface of the cap plate 350 on which the electrode terminal 310 is formed.

At this time, since the coupling plate 370 is formed to be wider than the insulating gasket 360, a space that does not come into contact with the insulating gasket 360 is formed outside the lower surface of the coupling plate 370, so that the resin is filled in the space. do.

Therefore, since the coupling plate 370 serves to hold the resin molding part, the resin molding part in which the protection circuit part 400 is molded is increased in strength to be attached to the cap plate 350.
