Cost of Li-ion Battery Materials
Battery material inputs have taken decades to turn from specialty, batch-processed chemicals into large-scale continuously processed chemicals. Moreover, battery markets have grown substantially in recent years, enough so to become the main demand sources for many materials, including cobalt, lithium and graphite. Other high-cost materials are also dramatically declining in price, including the additives, solvents and binders that are inactive but highly important ingredients in the battery.
Lithium-ion Battery Technology Benefits
Lithium based batteries offer the following advantages over competing battery technologies:
- Higher energy density (3x Nickel)
- High performance
- Longer lifecycle
- Quick re-charging
- All season battery – operating down to temperatures of -60oC
- No minimum level current charge
