Categories of Use of Lithium Ion Batteries


Guide: Compared with other types of batteries, lithium-ion batteries have significant advantages.


(1) The application of portable electrical appliances has become an indispensable part of people's life, such as mobile phones, laptops, micro-cameras and other appliances that need portable power supply. In terms of power supply, lithium-ion batteries are selected as the mainstream of the market without exception. According to statistics, the global production of mobile phones is nearly 2.1 billion units per year, and the global production of notebook computers is about 150 million units per year, forming a huge lithium-ion battery application market. In this field, lithium cobalt oxide and lithium manganese oxide lithium ion batteries are dominant.


(2) With the progress of social civilization, people's awareness of environmental protection has been raised and environmental requirements have been increasing. Environmental protection vehicles have come into people's vision. At present, China's electric light vehicles, mainly electric bicycles, are showing a vigorous development trend. Lithium-ion batteries have begun to be used in some high-end models. In the development of electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries have become the mainstream. In China, more than half of the electric vehicles developed by many automobile development and production enterprises adopt lithium-ion batteries, and have a trend of gradual expansion. Internationally, pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles, such as Nissan's Leaf, Mitsubishi's i-MiEV and General Motors'Volt, which have been declared to be on the market, all use lithium-ion battery systems.


(3) The application of lithium-ion batteries in military equipment and aerospace industry. Lithium-ion batteries are mainly used as power starting power supply, radio power supply for wireless communications, power supply for miniature unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, etc. In addition, lithium-ion batteries are now widely used in such fields as laser sighting device, night vision device, pilot lifesaving radio power supply, etc. In the space field, lithium-ion batteries have been used in geosynchronous orbit satellites and low-orbit communication satellites as the power for correction and ground operation in launch and flight.


(4) The structural characteristics and special working principle of other lithium-ion batteries determine their characteristics of abundant raw materials, environmental protection, high specific capacity, good cycling performance and safety performance. They are widely used in medical industry (e.g., hearing aids, pacemakers, etc.), petrochemical industry (e.g., oil extraction power load adjustment) and electric power industry (e.g., energy storage power supply). Application prospects. In the pursuit of energy greening today, it has more important significance.
