Consumer Use of Lithium Batteries
Transcript of Consumer Use of Lithium Batteries
laptop batteries made by Sony Corp" (Lamb) Lithium batteries begin to degrade
as soon as they leave the factory,
losing about 5% of its charge per month,
whether it's being used or not Lithium batteries only lose
about 5% of their charge per
month compared to NiMH's
20% loss Li-ion batteries, which can be found in
laptops, cellphones, and other portable
devices "can overheat or even catch fire if tiny metal fragments, left over from the manufacturing process get into the electrolyte When the battery charges,
ions of lithium move through the electrolyte from the cathode to the anode and attatch to the carbon. During discharge, the lithium ions move back to the LiCoO2 from the carbon. ~Producer's transperancy in advertisments "Lithium extraction doesn't involve toxic waste [or] radioactive slag"(Fletcher) but it is mined out of the earth which still effects the earth in its own way. "I mean, we're going to put a big hole in the side
of that mountain," Chmelauskas said. "But you
have to weigh the net costs." (Fletcher) About 350 million rechargeable
batteries are sold in the U.S. but
a small portion of these batteries
end up recycled making up a
significant portion of heavy metal
contamination at solid waste facilities. 1991: Sony releases 1st
commercial lithium batteries 2008: 3.3 billion lithium batteries
were produced What consumer's should expect from manufacturers ~Truthfulness/ honesty from manufacturers ~That lithium-ion batteries have protections
which will shut them off before they reach too high a temperture and short circuit ~Learn more about the lithium battery
~Research the developments in Li-ion technology
