The problem with Lithium ion batteries: 

There have been many documented cases of fires associated with lithium ion batteries in recent times, and these are only going to get more common with the higher number of lithium ion batteries in use in portable electronic devices, electric vehicles, power tools, toys, pacemakers and defibrillators, photographic equipment, and more. 

Lithium-ion batteries are widely used due to their high energy density and long cycle life. However, there are some potential problems associated with lithium-ion batteries, including: 

  • Safety risks: Lithium-ion batteries can generate significant heat or catch fire if they are damaged, short-circuited, overcharged, or exposed to high temperatures. These safety risks can pose a danger to people and property. 
  • Environmental concerns: Lithium-ion batteries contain toxic and flammable materials, such as lithium, cobalt, and electrolyte solutions, which can pose a risk to the environment if not disposed of properly. 
  • Capacity degradation: Over time, the capacity of lithium-ion batteries can degrade, meaning that they can hold less charge and provide less power. This can result in reduced battery life and performance, which can be frustrating for users.
