They Won a Nobel Prize for Choosing Lithium, And Now You Benefit Too.

Yesterday morning we woke up to see a familiar name in the news as John B. Goodenough was announced by the Nobel Prize Committee, along with two others, as the recipients for this year's Nobel Prize in chemistry. We’ve written about John in earlier posts (See “A Week For Gratitude”) and can say we’re thrilled to see the recognition he, M. Stanley Whittington and Yoshino Akira received for the work they did over two decades in three countries that led to what one committee member referred to as “a highly charged story with tremendous potential”!

Lithium Ion vs Lithium Iron Batteries

Lithium batteries stand apart from other batteries in their high charge density (long life) and high cost per unit.  What are the major differences between the battery you are familiar with, the Lithium Ion (LiCoO2) and the new kid on the block, Lithium Iron (LiFePO4)?  

Below we break down the differences between the two types of batteries:
