What Are The Advantages Of Lithium-Ion Batteries Over Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Batteries?
Lithium-ion batteries provide a number of advantages over NiMH (and other batteries), including:
  • Higher voltage (need fewer cells)
  • Lower weight
  • Smaller volume (size of pack)
  • Greater power and performance – NiMH has limitations in meeting the power and energy density demands of Hybrid Electric Vehicles
  • Longer life
  • Able to withstand a wider range of temperatures
  • Less environmental impact
How Soon Is It Expected That Lithium-Ion Batteries Will Replace NiMH Batteries In The Automotive Industry?
All post-2010 XEV applications (HEV’s, PHEV’s, EREV’s and BEV’s) are using Lithium-ion batteries. The only exception is manufacturers with substantial investments in Ni-MH manufacturing infrastructure.
