Sulfur, vanadium oxides and lithium cobalt phospate have all been tried as a cathode material; while lithium titanate
and a variety of exotic carbons (like nanotubes) have tried their hand as anode materials.
Even lithium titanate
oxide is commercialized by a few battery manufacturers and NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) is another prominent one, so I think lithium ion battery technology is pretty mature.
Several variants of Li-Ion are used, including Nickel/Cobalt/Manganese-based, Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP), and Lithium Titanate
Six battery technologies were originally considered, and that was whittled down to three--lithium ferrous phosphate, hot sodium salt, and lithium titanate
. "We discovered that two of the technologies didn't meet our criteria," says Ambrose.
(LTO) is attractive for its cycling characteristics in high power discharge situations and equipment that can have as much as 7,000 to 8,000 full depth of discharge cycles in them.
e Lighting GT electric supercar runs on lithium titanate
batteries and is capable of accelerating to 60mph in less than ve seconds, has a top speed of 130mph, a range of more than 150 miles and can charge in as little as ten minutes.
The Lightning's real party trick is its ultra-expensive and very special lithium titanate
batteries, which don't heat up, can be fast-charged in 10 minutes and hold their power after 10,000 cycles.
Indeed, sometimes people talk loosely about favouring lithium titanate
against lithium polymer or lithium iron phosphate when the first usually refers to how the anode is made, the second to the electrolyte and the third to the cathode.
decided to expand its lithium titanate
plant in Ube, Yamaguchi Prefecture, at a cost of 2.6 billion yen to prepare for an expected increase in demand for the material applicable to lithium-ion batteries.
