To understand why the lithium battery market and their applications are currently booming, you need to understand their technology, because how they work makes them unique. Attracted by the performance of lithium, which is decidedly better than lead-acid, an increasing number of industrial machine and electric vehicle manufacturers are choosing next-gen accumulators.
Tesla, for example, was one of the first ones to create a clear gap between itself and other vehicle manufacturers by creating the first true electric saloon in history. In the case of Tesla, its motors are powered by lithium battery packs which offer a range of about 500 km and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds.
Lithium is the lightest known metal in the world and, at the same time, the least dense solid element with the highest electrochemical potential. As far as we know at the moment, it’s the best element for the batteries of today and tomorrow.
To improve the performance and duration of accumulators was the goal which drove Marco Righi and Alan Pastorelli, then in their early twenties back in 2009, to perform their first tests on lithium batteries.
