Battery lithium ion advantage is irreplaceable


As a new generation of rechargeable power supply, lithium ion battery has the advantages of high energy density, high operating voltage, wide operating temperature range, long cycle life and high safety performance, and is the mainstream development direction of the current rechargeable battery.  It also has low maintenance requirements and no memory effect and other characteristics, in the battle can be charged and discharged at any time, and almost no battlefield maintenance, reduce the logistical burden, so the military attention and development of various countries.  In recent years, lithium ion batteries have been widely used in individual combat systems, submarines, unmanned aerial vehicles, aircraft and other military equipment, showing broad application prospects in land, sea, air and space fields.  

Lithium ion battery is a new generation of rechargeable battery after nickel-metal hydride and other traditional batteries, which was first developed by SONY in 1990.  Lithium ion battery is considered as the first choice of new power source because of its simple working principle, good safety and long charge and discharge life.  


Lithium ion batteries have the following advantages for military applications.  High operating voltage.  The discharge voltage of one lithium-ion battery is equivalent to three conventional batteries, which greatly reduces the battery usage under the same conditions.  High energy density.  It is 2 to 3 times of ordinary battery, small in size and light in weight, so it has irreplaceable advantages in field portable electronic equipment.  Long cycle life.  The service life is 10 to 15 years, compared with the traditional battery 7 to 8 years, reducing the impact of high cost.  No environmental pollution.  Does not contain lead, mercury and other heavy metals, is a clean "green" energy.  No memory effect.  Can charge and discharge at will, especially in wartime and emergency situations show excellent performance.  Low maintenance rate.  Virtually no maintenance is required, reducing the wartime logistical burden.  In addition, there are high safety performance, wide operating temperature range and other advantages.  


In recent years, the lithium-ion battery has been developed vigorously as a new battery to replace the traditional battery. The new lithium-ion battery has many characteristics and shows irreplaceable advantages in the application of portable electronic equipment.
