Lithium Ion Battery: new kid on the block in the battery industry. The big breakthrough in Li-ion happened in the 1990s. Today, global demand for lithium batteries is forecast to continue rapid growth driven by consumer electronics and electrical vehicles.
LITHIUM ION BATTERIES FACE CHALLENGES AS WELL…
- Li-ion batteries face higher material and manufacturing cost than traditional batteries.
- Product safety remains a major concern.
- Like Lead Acid, lithium batteries could benefit from quicker charge times, longer life, and a smaller size.
THE NEXT WAVE IS COMING…
Black Diamond Structures is working with a number of lithium battery manufacturers and research institutions to create a safer, smaller, and more powerful lithium battery.
