Wow! There are so many things to consider.

Right! Lithium-ion batteries can be divided into various types
according to these metrics. For example...

Batteries with high energy output

Batteries with high energy density that help reduce system size

Batteries that can be used for many years


Hmmm. So, a lithium-ion battery which is good for one isn't necessarily as good for the other.

That’s right! It's important to select a battery that suits your purpose.

What are the criteria for selecting a lithium-ion battery?
