Lithium batteries have applications in many long-life devices, such as pacemakers and other implantable electronic medical devices. These devices use special lithium iodine batteries and are designed to have a service life of 15 years or longer. But for other less important applications, such as toys, lithium batteries may have a longer life than equipment. In this case, expensive lithium batteries may not be cost-effective.
Lithium batteries can replace ordinary alkaline batteries in many devices, such as clocks and cameras. Although lithium batteries are more expensive, they can provide a longer service life, thereby minimizing battery replacement. It is worth noting that if the equipment that uses ordinary zinc batteries is replaced with lithium batteries, attention must be paid to the high voltage generated by lithium batteries.
Lithium batteries are also widely used in instruments and equipment that need to be used for a long time and cannot be replaced. Small lithium batteries are usually used in small portable electronic devices, such as PDAs, watches, camcorders, digital cameras, thermometers, calculators, computer BIOS, Communication equipment and remote car lock. Lithium batteries have the characteristics of high current, high energy density, and high voltage and longer duration than alkaline batteries, making lithium batteries a particularly attractive choice.
“Lithium battery” is a type of battery that uses lithium metal or lithium alloy as the negative electrode material and uses a non-aqueous electrolyte solution. In 1912, the lithium metal battery was proposed and studied by Gilbert N. Lewis very early. In the 1970s, M. S. Whittingham proposed and began to study lithium-ion batteries. Due to the very active chemical properties of lithium metal, the processing, storage and use of lithium metal have very high environmental requirements. Therefore, lithium batteries have not been used for a long time. With the development of science and technology, lithium batteries have now become the mainstream.
