Lithium Battery Care

- Nov 21, 2018-

Lithium ion batteries use the slow movement of charged lithium particles across a battery to store energy; the batteries recharge by, in essence, transporting the ions back across the battery. This allows the batteries to be lightweight and durable, and typical batteries can endure about 1000 full recharge cycles. This number can be skewed downward by several factors, however, so to get as much life out of your battery as possible it is necessary to take care of it. Additionally, lithium batteries lose storage capacity over time; luckily, careful use and charging will extend the battery’s useful life.
