What are the two types of lithium batteries?

207 Published by BSLBATT Sep 15,2023

There are two types of lithium batteries: primary lithium (metal) batteries and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

Primary lithium batteries are starting to replace the commonly used alkaline batteries due to their longer-lasting performance. These batteries are designed for single-use and cannot be recharged. They are commonly used in devices that require a long shelf life, such as pacemakers, remote controls, and various medical devices. Primary lithium batteries offer a high energy density and have a stable discharge curve throughout their lifespan.


On the other hand, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are widely used in portable electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and electric vehicles. These batteries can be recharged multiple times, making them more cost-effective and environmentally friendly compared to primary lithium batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are known for their high energy density, lightweight design, and long cycle life. They have become the preferred choice for many applications due to their ability to deliver consistent power over extended periods.


In summary, the two types of lithium batteries are primary lithium (metal) batteries and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. While primary lithium batteries offer a longer lifespan and are commonly used in devices that require a long shelf life, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are more versatile and widely used in portable electronic devices.
