Lithium-Ion Battery Research
Principal Technologist, QuantumSphere Inc
Commercially introduced in the early 1990s, lithium-ion batteries exhibited an annual market penetration rate of 25%, replacing less energy dense nickel metal hydride batteries. A typical commercial Li-ion battery has a specific energy of about 200Wh/kg, while some more advanced systems reached a specific energy exceeding 275 Wh/kg. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are the power source of choice in present-day electronic devices, such as laptop computers, cell phones, smart phones, cameras, and many more. Additionally, they are becoming a viable option for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in electric hybrid vehicles (PHEVs).
