Lithium-ion batteries are a wide category, because there are many different variants of the chemistry used within lithium-ion cells, which strongly affects the key parameters of the battery.
The most commonly used li-ion chemistry is:
Within each of the above groups, the proportions of the elements used and the different admixtures can further diversify the different types of cells. Therefore, it is extremely important to individually select the cell chemistry for each application.
The choice of cell chemistry affects the following parameters:
Safety (e.g., behaviour during piercing / overheating / overloading)
Number of cycles (service life)
