Lithium-ion Batteries (Li-ion)

Li-ion batteries utilize the exchange of Lithium ions between electrodes to charge and discharge the battery. Li-ion is a highly attractive material for batteries because it has high reduction potential, i.e., a tendency to acquire electrons, and it is lightweight. Li-ion batteries are typically characterized as power devices capable of short durations (approximately 15 minutes to 1 hour) or stacked to form longer durations.
