A big buzzword in today’s green charging world is “lithium”. Although lithium batteries seem to be all the rage in up and coming technology, many still do not know the difference between lithium and other rechargeable batteries.
Aluratek is here to clear any confusion and weigh in on some advantages to lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries have a higher energy density than other types of rechargeable batteries, meaning for their size or weight, they can store more energy than other rechargeable batteries.
Not only do lithium batteries operate at higher voltages (typically about 3.7 volts for lithium-ion vs. 1.2 volts for other rechargeable batteries), but they also have a lower self-discharge rate than other types of rechargeable batteries. Ergo (I love being a professor!), once they are charged they retain their charge for a longer period of time. In fact, lithium-ion batteries will retain most of their charge even after months of storage!
So in summary, lithium-ion batteries can be smaller or lighter, have a higher voltage and hold a charge much longer than other types of batteries. Why not use them in Aluratek products?
You can find lithium-ion batteries in several Aluratek electronics including:
- Our line of Cinecam video camcorders
- Multimedia player Cinepal
