Applications

Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Electronic Consumer Devices | Goodfellow Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Electronic Consumer Devices | Goodfellow

Electronic Consumer Devices

Laptops, smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, and portable electronics are all powered by lithium-ion batteries.

The innovation and advancement in this technology has allowed for devices to become smaller and lightweight while having longer battery life, higher power densities, and longer device lifespans.

Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Renewable Energy Storage | Goodfellow Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Renewable Energy Storage | Goodfellow

Renewable Energy Storage

With the drive towards renewable energy generation, battery storage is becoming essential to this sector. Energy companies around the world are using lithium-ion batteries in supersized packs and facilities to store energy from wind, solar, and tidal plants, until demand is required.

Storage of this energy minimizes waste and allows use of renewable energy, even at a time when production is decreased.

Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Space | Goodfellow Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Space | Goodfellow

Space

Rechargeable power sources are an important factor in many space applications. Satellites, spacecraft, launch vehicles, and space probes all require a rechargeable energy source that can power both the vehicle and the equipment on board.

Lithium-ion batteries are widely used as this rechargeable source in space exploration.

Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Transport | Goodfellow Lithium Ion Batteries Applications for Transport | Goodfellow

Transport

Electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids are becoming ever more common with the need to reduce overall emissions. Lithium-ion battery technology has advanced to such an extent that the range of an EV vehicle is now similar to that of a typical combustion powered road car.

The main disadvantage of an EV vehicle has been charging times, but with rapid charging this can be decreased to 30 minutes or less.
