Abstract

Lithium ion batteries are secondary batteries, meaning they are rechargeable. They are generally smaller and able to carry more of a charge than primary, or one-time use, batteries. This makes them the ideal choice for most modern technology in need of batteries. They are used in many common devices like phones, computers, and vehicles. This film will review the history, evolution, and functionality of the lithium ion battery from its discovery in the 1970s through its most recent developments. These energy cells also have many downsides and dangers associated with their development, use, and disposal. These effects are seen as they affect the environment and those who work to manufacture them. The future includes further development of the lithium ion, as well as more environmentally conscious and efficient batteries in general.
