The world has become highly dependent on the advent of batteries. It is nearly impossible to find people in the modern world without cell phones, similarly, it is nearly impossible to find people in the modern world without some sort of battery technology. Their impact is so massive, that they have been the driving factor behind countless technologies being invented.
Most cell phones – along with many other portable electronics, such as laptops, tablets, cameras – are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are favoured for their light weight, high energy density, compact dimensions, and low maintenance requirements. Hence, why they have become a staple of modern electronics.
Since their commercial introduction in 1991, lithium-ion batteries have quickly emerged as the preeminent portable energy source. Other prominent industries, including aviation, transportation, and energy storage, are eagerly adopting them.
John B. Goodenough, M. Stanly Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino were the brilliant minds behind their expansive contribution to the lithium iron batteries. Nobel prizes are usually on the verge of diving into foundational but seemingly rarified corners of the sciences. With regards to the lithium iron batteries, there was an exception. The announcement of the nobel prize winners reached into billions of people’s pockets—and homes, offices, workshops, cars establishing itself as part of the foundational structure of modern life.
As far as modern trends go, the lithium iron battery are also at the heart of green energy. They steer forward Priuses, Tesla’s and all other sorts of dependable, sustainable, green energy.
