The modern energy
Lithium ion is a relatively new rechargeable battery chemistry that is becoming more common. Li-ion batteries have a longer lifetime, better charging capabilities and are safer to use than the traditional lead-acid battery technology. Li-ion has the capability to store more energy in a smaller, lighter footprint, deliver full power to its maximum depth of discharge, and recharge faster and more often. The need for energy storage continues to increase as energy production from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, becomes more common. Li-ion batteries are also a more environmentally friendly technology, which complements renewable resource technology.
