There are so many things that need batteries these days, especially with all electronic devices sold. Who knew batteries would come in all shapes, sizes, and types. You might think buying a battery is easy, but now you need to be in the know about the battery before purchasing it. One of the most popular batteries today is the lithium polymer battery. Lithium polymer battery packs are very thin and light, making them ideal for many electronic devices.
Lithium polymer battery was introduced in 1996. Due to its lightweight construction and the fact that it is rechargeable, it quickly won the approval of many people. These batteries are currently used in many electronic devices such as portable video players, laptops, and many other rechargeable electronic devices.
Energy density is one of the essential components of a good battery, and lithium has the highest energy density of all batteries sold. The life cycle is also longer and the battery degradation is much slower. This battery has several drawbacks such as explosion during charging, faster capacity loss, and longer charging time.
The two main lithium batteries available for purchase are lithium-ion and lithium polymer. Polymer batteries are safer than ion batteries due to the method of suspension of lithium. Polymer batteries contain lithium in the polymer gel and ion batteries contain lithium in organic solvents. Unlike polymeric gels, organic solvents are flammable. Ions also tend to ignite in the event of a short circuit or if the battery is damaged. In both cases, the probability of the polymer explosion decreases.
