A "lithium battery" is a type of battery that uses a lithium metal or a lithium alloy as a negative electrode material and uses a non-aqueous electrolyte solution. The 1912 lithium metal battery was first proposed and studied by Gilbert N. Lewis. In the 1970s, M. S. Whittingham proposed and began to study lithium-ion batteries. Because the chemical properties of lithium metal are very lively, the processing, preservation and use of lithium metal require very high environmental requirements. Therefore, lithium batteries have not been applied for a long time. With the development of science and technology, lithium batteries have now become mainstream.
Lithium batteries can be roughly divided into two types: lithium metal batteries and lithium ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries do not contain metallic lithium and are rechargeable. The fifth-generation lithium battery of rechargeable battery was born in 1996. Its safety, specific capacity, self-discharge rate and performance-cost ratio are all superior to lithium-ion batteries. Because of its own high-tech requirements, companies in only a few countries are now producing such lithium metal batteries.
