What You Need To Know About Lithium Batteries

Electric batteries have come a long way since some unknown Parthian first stuck some iron and copper cylinders into a jar of grape juice (or maybe it was lemon juice… or vinegar?). The things that power our iPhones today, 2,000 years later, work on the same basic principle, though they bear little resemblance to a clay jar. The clay has been replaced by plastic, the grape juice has been replaced by an electrolyte gel, and the iron and copper [...]

Five tips for extending lithium-ion battery life

In today's mobile world, battery life is precious. If you don't believe me, go to an airport and watch the road warriors. It can get downright nasty when two spot the only available outlet at the same time. It doesn't take long to learn what helps preserve the current charge on the battery. What's not well known is how to care for the battery itself. That's just as important. Doing so allows the battery to operate efficiently. Here are a [...]

PASSIVATION IN LITHIUM BATTERIES

What Is Passivation in Lithium Batteries? Passivation is a chemical term referring to the inherent phenomena observed within all Lithium Thionyl Chloride Primary cells whereby a high resistant film (Solid Electrolyte Interface -SEI) of Lithium Chloride (LiCL) is formed internally on the surface of the lithium anode within cells themselves. A LiCl film is formed as a result of a chemical reaction between the interaction of the battery electrolyte and the fixed lithium anode. Long Shelf Life Due to the formation of a [...]
