Growing Popularity Of Lithium-Ion Battery Packs

Why are Lithium-Ion battery packs popular? Of all the metals, lithium is the lightest. It has the highest electrochemical potential and provides the highest energy density per weight. G.N. Lewis et al pioneered the idea of Li-Ion battery in 1912. However, it was only in the early 1970’s, that the world got its first non-rechargeable lithium batteries for commercial use.   Qualities of Lithium-Ion Batteries Due to the fact that it has the highest energy density, the Li-Ion battery has an edge over the normal nickel cadmium battery. Due to improvements incorporated in the active compounds of the electrode, the Li-Ion battery has an electric power density which is almost three times more than that of the nickel cadmium battery. Besides this, the load capacity of lithium battery is also appreciable. It has a flat discharge curve which gives you the chance to use the saved power in a voltage range of your choice. One of the noteworthy qualities of Lithium-Ion battery pack...

Six Tips For Extending The Life Of Lithium-Based Batteries

Lithium batteries are advancing rapidly, and they provide longer use times than nickel and lead based batteries. Their use has been adopted as the standard for most of the spy cameras, and other electronics on the market today. Here are six tips to extend the life of your lithium-ion based electronic device. Here are six things you can do to increase the life of your lithium-based battery. 1. Avoid constant full discharges: Lithium batteries prefer a partial discharge, over a full discharge. You should not frequently fully discharge the batteries, rather charge the battery more often, if possible, daily to insure a long life. 2. Recalibrate: We suggest a full discharge every 30 charges for batteries with fuel gauges, like laptops and mobile phones to recalibrate the battery. Just let it run until it stops, then recharge. 3. Laptop computer uses: If you keep the battery in your laptop for everyday use, and power it from the wall socket, unplug the power every few days and let it r...

The discovery of a submarine lithium battery is actually ...

According to Japanese media reports, on October 4th, local time, the Japanese dragon-class conventional submarine No. 11 “Phoenix Dragon” was launched. The boat used lithium batteries for the first time. It was called “revolutionary breakthrough” by submarine batteries. As we all know, the battery is the main power source of the conventional submarine, and it is also the backup power supply and emergency power supply for the nuclear submarine. Therefore, the performance of the battery directly determines the submarine performance and combat capability. If the battery performance is not good, the power supply is insufficient, the submarine will not run fast, the mobility is greatly limited, the charging time is longer, and the risk of being exposed is greatly increased. For this reason, the development and application of submarine batteries have been highly valued by the world’s submarine manufacturers. The lead-acid battery has mature technology, hi...

Since the conventional electrolyte partially solidifies at temperatures below 0 ° C, the capacity of the lithium ion battery is drastically reduced when it is operated under low temperature conditions, thus limiting its application under extreme conditions. In order to improve the low temperature performance of lithium ion batteries, a lot of research work has focused on improving the conductivity of electrolytes. Figure 1 is a process of synthesizing the additive. Mainly, the ionic liquid molecular chain is grafted onto the polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) nanosphere by reaction to form a brush-like main structure, and then the structure is dispersed in ethyl acetate (MA). And a new electrolyte system is formed in a mixed solvent of propylene carbonate (PC). As shown in Fig. 2a, the conductivity of the electrolyte decreases as the temperature decreases, and the conductivity of the electrolyte containing ethyl acetate is much higher than that of the electrolyte using only propylene...

Advantages and Disadvantages of the Lithium-Ion Battery

The lithium-ion battery is one of the most popular choices for consumer and portable electronics. The high performance and fast recharge cycle also makes is a great choice for automobile, aerospace and military applications. Here are a few of the basic advantages of using the lithium-ion battery: ★ Compact size The lithium-ion battery is smaller and lighter than most other types of rechargeable batteries in the market. The compact size makes is a popular choice for a wide range of electronic gadgets. ★ High-energy density The high energy density of this type of battery makes it a very favorable choice compared to the alternatives. This means the battery has the ability to provide a lot of power without being large in size. The high energy is great for power-hungry gadgets like tablets, smartphones and laptops. ★ Low self-discharge The lithium-ion battery has low self-discharge rate, which is estimated at about 1.5% per month. The slow rate of discharge means the battery has a ...

What are the factors that affect the low temperature performance of lithium ion batteries? Lithium-ion batteries have the advantages of high energy density, low self-discharge, high output voltage, long cycle life and no memory effect, occupying most markets in the field of consumer electronics represented by mobile phones, notebook computers, digital cameras, etc. Share. At present, the application of lithium-ion batteries in the fields of power tools and electric bicycles has also shown a geometric progression. With the rapid development of lithium-ion batteries in the field of electric vehicles and military industry, the low-temperature performance can not adapt to the special low-temperature weather or extreme environmental defects. Under low temperature conditions, the effective discharge capacity and effective discharge energy of lithium-ion batteries will be significantly reduced, and at the same time it is almost impossible to charge in the environment below -10 °C, whic...

Recycling

Recycling A number of valuable metals and substances can be extracted from used batteries. This is performed by recycling professionals who meet the same high standards as the rest of the industry and this process is covered by specific legislation. These materials are reused either in new batteries or other industries. Thousands of tons of metals such as silver, cobalt, nickel and lead can be recovered for these purposes. This ensures environmentally sustainable and responsible production of these materials which are often scarce. For example, the lead used in lead based batteries operate in a closed loop, with 99.5% of a battery’s lead being recoverable and can be used in new batteries. Other battery components are likewise recycled, either being used in the production of new batteries or by other industries (Sodium Nickel Chloride batteries’ waste can be used in existing industries such as in the production of stainless steel and road pavement, for example). End-of-life batter...

11 Lithium-Ion Battery Makers That Don’t Need Cobalt

11 Lithium-Ion Battery Makers That Don’t Need Cobalt ★ Demand for cobalt is affecting battery markets, but luckily not all lithium-ion batteries require the metal. ★ If you’ve been paying attention to the debate about lithium-ion battery materials, then you will know there is a price problem with lithium, but the real market danger is with cobalt. ★ While experts doubt that cobalt scarcity will halt the growth of the lithium-ion battery business, demand for the metal is affecting battery markets and increasing the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s stranglehold on supplies. ★ To the uninitiated, this might seem like a major threat to the lithium-ion energy storage business. But it’s not, for the simple reason that not all lithium-ion batteries need cobalt. ★ Lithium iron phosphate (LFP), lithium manganese oxide (LMO) and lithium titanate (LTO) batteries are cobalt-free. ★ The catch is that their energy density is lower than that of lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) or lit...
