Battery Materials Today

Batteries are expected to simultaneously fulfill a large number of criteria in order to meet performance demands for consumer electronics and electric cars. These include high power and high energy density, long life, suitable discharge rate, low cost and excellent safety.
Our ability to produce lithium ion cells cheaply and rapidly has grown significantly in the last three decades. Still, there remains many opportunities to improve upon current rechargeable battery technologies through the use of next-generation materials.
Lithium-ion Battery

Lithium-ion is not a single technology, but a family of technologies. Although they all rely on lithium as the shuttling ion, different versions of the technology combine the lithium with a variety of other materials to confer different properties. Collectively, li ion battery are the fastest growing form of battery on the worldwide market, with the potential to dominate the battery market in the short term.

The lithium-ion battery presents clear fundamental technology advantages when compared to alternative battery chemistries like lead acid. Decades of research have led its development it into the high energy density, high cycle life, high-efficiency energy storage technology that it is today. Nevertheless, research and development continues on new electrode materials to push the boundaries of cost, energy density, power density, discharge rate, cycle life, reliability and safety.

Lithium-ion Battery Advantages

Lithium-ion technology is currently the best performing technology for energy storage based on batteries. Li-ion batteries are used in small electronics (smartphones, laptops) and are also the best options for electric cars.

  • Very high energy density, with potential for even greater density in the future.
  • Prolonged charging of new batteries not required.
  • Low discharge rate equivalent to half that of nickel-based batteries.
  • Low maintenance requirements – period discharge not required.
  • Can be configured to provide very high current to applications such as power tools.
