battery">lithium-ion battery</a> is a rechargeable battery used mostly
for consumer electronics. Because it can be recharged, it is secondary
battery. Lithium-ion batteries are not lithium batteries, which are
primary, or not rechargeable, batteries. The lithium-ion battery is
sometimes called "li-ion." The battery gets its name from the lithium ion
that moves between an anode and a cathode, two of the primary components
of the battery. A third component, the electrolyte, completes the
functional makeup of a lithium-ion battery. Depending on the materials
used for these three components, the capacity and life of the battery
changes drastically. Basically, a lithium ion moves back and forth
between the anode and cathode during discharge and when charging.</p>
<p>Higher Energy Density</p>
<p>Research on lithium batteries' instability during charging led to a
lithium battery using lithium ions. Lithium-ion proved safer and has an
energy density that is nearly double that of a nickel-cadmium battery.
Their energy density is also higher than other rechargeable batteries,
meaning they provide a lot of energy for their weight and size. They are
lighter and smaller because they are made from lithium, the lightest
metal, and carbon. A lithium-ion battery has between 500 to 1,000 charge
cycles. It also has a low self-discharge rate. This allows <a

small electronics to be designed using only one cell instead of three.
Current research suggests that future lithium-ion batteries have
potential for even higher energy capacities.</p>

<p>Low Maintenance/Lengthy Charge Hold</p>
<p>Lithium-ion batteries are low-maintenance. No priming is necessary for
a new battery. They retain their charge for a longer time than other
rechargeable batteries. With lithium-ion batteries no memory effect
occurs as in nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries. So, the user does not
have to completely use up the battery before recharge. Their charge is
retained even after a consumer stores the battery for months.</p>
<p>Environmentally Friendly</p>
<p>Lithium-ion batteries are currently considered one of the most "green"
batteries. Relatively few toxic metals are used to manufacture li-ions.
They are recyclable, as are most <a rel="nofollow"

rechargeable  batteries</a>, provided the consumer deposits them at a
suitable recycling spot. Lithium-ions also use organic solvents, such as
ether, to suspend the lithium ions.</p>
<p>Lithium-ion batteries are currently used mainly for small electronics.
This type of battery is popular with portable electronics, such as laptop
computers, cell phones, iPods and digital cameras. Additionally, lithium-
ion batteries are being considered for the automotive and aerospace
<p>The lithium-ion battery holds energy promise. With possible
applications for defense, aerospace and the automotive industry's
environmentally friendly cars, the "li-ion" may be powering even more
consumer products in the future.</p>                <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
