Powering the world with Lithium

Lithium has unique properties that make it especially useful for batteries. PowerScout has summarised the basic concepts in an infographic.

Prior to lithium, nickel-cadmium was considered the only suitable material for portable devices with batteries. "Nickel-metal-hydride and lithium-ion emerged in the early 1990s, fighting nose-to-nose to gain customers acceptance. At present, however, lithium-ion is now the fastest growing and most promising battery chemistry."- Battery University
