Lithium-ion batteries are widely used because of their light weight, large capacity, and no memory effect—many digital devices today use lithium-ion batteries as power sources, although they are relatively expensive. Lithium-ion batteries have high energy density, their capacity is 1.5 to 2 times that of nickel-metal hydride batteries of the same weight, and they have a very low self-discharge rate. In addition, lithium-ion batteries have almost no "memory effect" and the advantages of no toxic substances are also important reasons for their widespread use.
Commonly used conductive agents for lithium-ion batteries can be divided into traditional conductive agents (such as carbon black, conductive graphite, carbon fiber, etc.) and new conductive agents (such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and their mixed conductive pastes, etc.). The types of conductive agents on the market are SPUERLi, S-O, KS-6, KS-15, SFG-6, SFG-15, 350G, acetylene black (AB), Ketjen black (KB), vapor grown carbon fiber (VGCF) , carbon nanotubes (CNTs), etc.
In the structure of lithium batteries, the separator is one of the key inner layer components. The performance of the lithium-ion battery separator determines the interface structure and internal resistance of the battery, which directly affects the capacity, cycle and safety performance of the battery. The separator with excellent performance plays an important role in improving the overall performance of the battery.
What are the types of lithium-ion batteries? Lithium-ion battery classification and characteristic analysis
Usually the most important power lithium batteries we say are lithium iron phosphate batteries, lithium manganate batteries, lithium cobalt oxide batteries and ternary lithium ion batteries. So, what are the classifications of lithium-ion batteries?
The negative electrode of lithium-ion battery is made of carbon or non-carbon materials, adhesives and additives, which are mixed to make a paste adhesive evenly coated on both sides of the copper foil, and then dried and rolled. The cathode material is the main body of lithium-ion battery to store lithium, which makes lithium ions embedded and removed in the process of charging and discharging. From a technical point of view, the cathode materials of lithium-ion batteries will show diversity in the future.
What are the cathode materials for lithium ion batteries? Lithium-ion battery cathode material introduction
Lithium-ion battery consists of positive electrode, negative electrode, electrolyte, electrolyte salt, adhesive, separator, positive electrode lead, negative electrode lead, center terminal, insulating material, safety valve, positive temperature coefficient terminal (PTC terminal), negative electrode current collector, positive electrode current collector, conductive agent, battery case and other components.
Lithium-ion batteries can be used in a variety of fields, so there are many types. According to the division of shape, there are mainly three types of lithium-ion batteries on the market, namely button type, cylindrical type and square type(C & D). Can meet the requirements of different uses.
