Current generations are opting for best camera’s, more RAM and ROMs, but they need to know that Batteries are stuffs which gives power to turn on smartphones and use those features.
Batteries are the main component of your smartphones and people needs to know which type of battery is going to be best for their smartphone.
Lithium Ion (or Li-Ion) Battery
The development of Lithium Ion Batteries were started around 1912 but they became popular when they were adopted by some big companies 1990s like Sony and others.
Lithium Ion batteries have high- energy density and are produced in rectangular shapes making them more flexible in nature.
Li-ion batteries consist three pieces – a positive electrode, a negative electrode and a liquid chemical compound or electrolyte. Most of the Lithium Ion batteries includes a electronic controller which helps to regulates power and discharge flow.
Lithium Polymer (or Li-Po or Li-Poly) Batteries
Lithium Polymer batteries were started developing around 1970s.
Lithium Polymer batteries have low-energy density. They are more flexible in nature and are easily to made in different shapes.
Lithium Polymer batteries consists of a positive, negative and solid component or porous chemical component or gel based electrolyte.
Pros & Cons
Pros of Lithium Ion Batteries
High Energy (Power) Density.
Low cost to make.
Batteries doesn’t becomes hard to charge over the time.
Cons of Lithium Ion Batteries
Combustible in nature – If the positive electrode and negative electrode breaks through each other a explosion could occur.
Problem of Aging.
Pros of Lithium Polymer Batteries
Flexible and can be made in different shapes. They are also very lightweight.
Lower chance of combustion.
Cons of Lithium Polymer Batteries
Low Energy (Power) Density.
Stores less power.
Life span is shorter compared to Li-Ion batteries.
Manufacturing cost is high.
Who won and which one to choose?
Li-Polymer is flexible and less combustible but Li-Ion clearly wins because of it’s high power density and more longer life span compared to Li-Polymer.
During the evolution of technology , Lithium Ion batteries have became safe.
