Lithium Ion Batteries - What You Need to Know About Li-Ion Technology

Added by Armstrong Neil about 1 year ago

Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery technology is one of the fastest growing trends in the tool community, and certainly for good reason. Lithium Ion batteries have the best energy to weight ratio, meaning they pack the most power with the smallest amount of bulk. They also experience no memory effect or, lazy battery effect. This occurs when a battery can no longer accept a maximum charge for having been repeatedly recharged without being fully used (a common symptom of Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) batteries). Li-Ion batteries, conversely, have absolutely no memory and can continually accept a maximum charge. Additionally, Lithium Ion batteries have a very slow rate of charge loss while the battery is disengaged.
What is the difference between Lithium Batteries and Lithium Ion Batteries?
The difference is in the chemistry; a Lithium battery is a disposable power source composed of lithium metal compounds - the key word, here, being disposable; Lithium batteries can not be recharged. Lithium Ion batteries, on the other hand, are intercalated, meaning the lithium ion inside the battery moves between two internal electrodes. This movement, or reversibility of the lithium ion accounts for the battery's rechargeability.
What are the benefits of Lithium Ion Technology?
-- Lithium Ion batteries hold a lot of power and are surprisingly light-weight, especially with consideration to other rechargeable batteries.
-- Li-Ion batteries combine single cell technology with a greater energy reservoir than Nickel Metal Hydride and Nickel Cadmium batteries. They store more power for their size than both NiCad and NiMH.
-- Li-Ion batteries hold their charge for significantly longer than other comparable batteries, and provide steady power until that charge is completely gone. Other batteries gradually and consistently loose power as you work. Li-Ion batteries stay strong until the last push.
Are there disadvantages to using Lithium Ion Batteries?
The disadvantages with using Li-Ion battery technology are generally few and far between, and technological advancements are making them even less so. Manufacturers have recently improved the Lithium Ion recipe to reveal a more reliable battery. Still, every giant has its weaknesses:
-- Li-Ion batteries are sensitive to intense hot and cold temperatures. In extreme temperature conditions, the battery will degrade more quickly.
-- Li-Ion batteries degrade regardless frequency of use.
-- The Li-Ion battery's built-in computer chip tells the battery to refuse a charge once the batteries power falls below a certain point. If this occurs, the battery is beyond repair.
Although these defects are more applicable to the older Lithium Ion batteries, the possibility of seeing these problems is still worth noting. Fortunately, these said defects are fairly rare, and easily avoided.
-- Store Li-Ion batteries (and other batteries as well) in a cool, dry place.
-- Use your Li-Ion batteries often.
-- Be certain Li-Ion batteries have a full charge before storing them, and pull them out every so often to use and recharge. Watch the batteries power level to be sure it doesn't fall below the charge limit.
General Li-Ion Battery Tips:
-- On occasion Lithium Ion batteries require more than one charge (sometimes 2 to even 10) to accept a full charge. The first time you charge your battery, leave it to charge over night. This ensures you'll have maximum power for your first use.
-- To maintain proper balance in your battery, leave it charge over night about once per week for the life of the battery.
-- When buying a new Lithium Ion battery, make certain you are buying a fresh one. There's a chance a battery has been degrading on the shelfs of manufacturer's and distributor's so be certain you are buying a new one. Most manufacturers provide a date code on the battery or packaging. Check dates before you purchase, and be confident you are getting a fresh, high-performance battery.

I was looking to do my assignment for me cheap and found a team of experts they helped me out and gave me quality work, their link is given below. A lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is an advanced battery technology that uses lithium ions as a key component of its electrochemistry. During a discharge cycle, lithium atoms in the anode are ionized and separated from their electrons.

I was looking for a post on Li-ion technology. today I across your post. I wanted to study Li-ion technology. I have read your post. This is very good post for me and my friends. But because my friend was a law student and was experiencing numerous academic challenges, I suggested that he get in touch with the ** service. This services really helpful for you. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Every brand has a story to tell, stories that not only entertain with, inform and delight their customers, but can also meet measurable objectives for their business. And I'm the link between the consumer and the brand.

I assist clients in determining the right subject and media that best matches their individuality, and then I develop quality content that is in line with their goals.

Presently, I'm a content strategist for Alliance Media, where I've worked with companies like Tiffany & Co., Burger King, and Netflix.

My expertise is in digital media consumer behaviour, brand awareness and multi-channel campaign marketing.

Since this kind of review concentrates more on soft skills rather than technical skills, it's perfect for two kinds of users: networkers and the less skilled. When you use LinkedIn for the sole purpose of meeting new people, and not to find a job, this can make you appear to be a fascinating person to connect with. It's likely that you'll notice an increase in the number of connections you establish as well as the number of people that are willing to accept your invitations to coffee.

This is especially beneficial for those who are still in school or relatively new to business world. Instead of being restricted to the standard three or two sentence bio that describes the limited work knowledge you've gained it's possible to flesh out your personality traits to let people know more about who you are.

But ideas for a reliable decimal-based method of measuring measured in multiples of ten been being discussed from the 17th century onwards. The creators of the metric system wanted to define everything using the language of logic and the natural world and departed from the old royal customs.

Milliliters were the equivalent in one cubic centimeter the weight of which would be one gram. One meter was one ten millionth of the length that runs between and the North Pole and the South.
