Lithium Introduction
Update time: 2015-09-22

"Lithium batteries", is a class of lithium metal or lithium alloy anode material, the use of non-aqueous electrolyte solution batteries. 1912 lithium metal batteries was first proposed and studied by the Gilbert N. Lewis. When in the 1970s, M. S. Whittingham put forward and began to study lithium ion battery. Since the chemical properties of lithium metal is very lively, making lithium metal processing, preservation, use, very high demands on the environment. Therefore, long-term lithium batteries have not been applied. With the development of science and technology, we are now lithium batteries have become the mainstream.
Lithium batteries can be divided into two types: lithium metal batteries and lithium ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries do not contain lithium metal state, and can be charged. Rechargeable batteries fifth generation of lithium metal batteries was born in 1996, their safety, specific capacity, self-discharge rate and cost performance are better than lithium ion batteries. Due to its high-tech requirements of restrictions, there are only a few countries in the production of such a lithium metal batteries.
