Lithium-ion: These batteries are a newer battery technology, especially when compared to lead-acid technology. These batteries offer an incredibly high energy to weight to ratio, making them one of the most energy efficient batteries available in today’s consumer market.
Lithium-ion batteries are a different technology than lead-acid batteries. Unlike lead-acid batteries, they are pressurized and composed of lithium-ion cells. The lithium-ion cell has a positive and negative lithium plate, a separator and are ﬁlled with electrolyte solution. The separator often is made of plastic and works to keep ions ﬂowing from the positive to the negative plate. As the battery discharges, the ions ﬂow from the positive to the negative plate.
Lithium-ion batteries start degrading once they are manufactured, therefore it is imperative to read the manufacturer’s date when purchasing. These batteries have very low self discharge rate of 1-2% per month.
Always charge lithium-ion batteries using the lithium-ion Mode.
