Lithium Cobalt Oxide ( or other lithium compound.)

Electrolyte Lithium -ion Battery What is it? " Lithium -ion Batteries are fueled by the mineral
lithium, one of the "rare earth minerals". These batteries, which use lithium compounds for stability, are rechargeable and can store more energy than other rechargeable batteries of the same size. They are also lighter, operate at higher voltages and hold a charge longer. Lithium -ion Batteries are six times as powerful as the standard lead acid car battery and twice as powerful as nickel-metal-hydride batteries currently used in hybrid cars."
- eHow.com What goes into a lithium -ion battery? Extraction Lithium is contained in the minerals
Spodumene, Lepidolite, Petalite, and
Amblygonite. Its extracted through conventional mining methods. It is mined in places such as the Andes and
King's Mountain, North Carolina. Processing Manufacturing -Lithium Compounds
-Plastic Perforated Sheet
-Metal Case
-Electrolyte The lithium processing includes testing to make sure the material is quality and that it functions properly. This could also include mixing it with other
metals to improve functions. An ore with copper in it
is mined crushed and the copper
is extracted from it. The electrolyte,LiPF6, is mixed
during the processing stage. The copper goes through various stages
of processing with the last stage being
the electolytic stage. Use The lithium-ion battery has many uses. Many of these uses include items where the battery is difficilt or hard to replace, such as an iPod. Many medical instruments also use lithium-ion batteries, such as cardiac pacemakers. Disposal 1) Identify and gather all lithium -ion batteries that need to be disposed.
2)Find a retailer that recycles lithium -ion batteries.
3) Once you have located a retailer, call them to confirm that they collect lithium -ion batteries.
4)Place each individual battery into a plastic bag. Only one battery per bag. You can do so anytime before drop off if no plastic bag is available wrap the battery in electircal, duct, or masking tape.
5) Bring the battery to be recycled at the retailer that you have chosen.
