Do Laptops Use Lithium Batteries -Types, Safety & Concerns
We today live in an era of technology. Almost every part of our daily routine now depends upon the use of smart devices. We even wake up with an alarm on our clock or cell phone. In all these devices used in our daily routine, laptops are among the most important ones. These mobile computers have now become an office for some of the professions nowadays, without their laptops they cannot do anything, their every file and document that was in the past a physical one has now become a digital document saved in the laptops. So, these devices have their importance in our lives.
Lithium metal was firstly used in these batteries, but it inherits stability problems especially during charging. Because of this safety hazard instead of lithium metal now lithium-ion is used in making these batteries which are slightly lower in energy than lithium-ion but are safer. The first time commercially it was used by Sony Corporation in 1991. Its energy is twice when compared to the previously used nickel-cadmium. Lithium-ions are also low maintenance demanding batteries with a lower rate of self-discharging compared to their forefathers i.e. nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride. These qualities make them a perfect fit for modern fuel gauge applications like laptops and mobile phones.
