1. According to anode materials, it is divided into four categories: lithium cobalt oxide, ternary, lithium manganese acid and lithium iron phosphate.
Lithium cobalt oxide cell: The nominal voltage is generally 3.7V, the highest charging voltage of lithium ion cell is less than 4.2V, and the lowest discharging voltage is more than 2.5V. Features: its advantages include stable structure, high specific capacity and outstanding comprehensive performance, while its disadvantages include poor safety and high cost. It is mainly used for small and medium-sized cells with nominal voltage of 3.7V.
Ternary cell: The nominal voltage is generally 3.6-3.7V, the highest charge voltage of lithium ion cell is less than 4.2V, the lowest discharge voltage is more than 2.5V. Features: advantages are that it has more balanced materials in terms of capacity and safety, and lower cost than lithium cobalt oxide. At present, most small high-rate power batteries at home and abroad use ternary anode materials, which have the tendency to replace lithium cobalt oxide batteries.
Lithium manganate cell: The nominal voltage is generally 3.7-3.8V, the highest charge voltage of lithium ion cell is less than 4.2V, the lowest discharge voltage is more than 2.5V. Features: It has low cost, good safety anode material, but the cycling life decays fast, high temperature characteristics are poor, battery prone to bulge, and has relatively short life. It is mainly used for large and medium-sized batteries and power batteries. Its nominal voltage is 3.8V.
Lithium iron phosphate cell: The nominal voltage is generally 3.2-3.3V, the highest charging voltage of lithium ion cell is less than 3.9V, and the lowest discharging voltage is more than 2.0V. Features: It has very good safety, but no explosion. Its excellent cycling performance can reach 2000 cycles. However, its shortcomings are obvious, either. The energy density is far lower than lithium cobalt oxide and ternary materials.
2. According to appearance, it is divided into four categories: cylinder, square, soft package and polymer
Cylinder cell: It includes 18650, 26650, 32650, 14500 and other different specifications, among which 18650 is the commonly used specification.
Square cell: It is mainly aluminum battery, such as 103450,063450, etc.
Soft package cell: It is liquid electrolyte soft package lithium battery. Its characteristic is that it is easier to customize the battery cell according to the customer's request. At present, most domestic soft package battery works like this.
Polymer cell: It is a solid state soft electrolyte lithium battery, which is produced by no other enterprises except new energy companies in China. The product has good safety and can be made into ultra-thin battery according to customer requirements.
