Lithium-ion batteries have a limited service life and have slowly declined since production. Battery life depends on how the battery is charged and discharged and at what temperature the battery is stored.

Lithium-ion batteries can be designed in different shapes and sizes to effectively fill the space available in the power supply. However, lithium-ion batteries are lighter than other equivalent secondary batteries. You can look for premium 18650 batteries online.

Energy is stored in this battery through the movement of lithium ions. Lithium is the third lightest element and saves a lot of weight compared to batteries made with much heavier metals.

One important thing is that lithium-ion batteries don't experience a memory effect. They also have a low self-discharge rate of around 5% per month, compared to more than 30% per month for nickel-metal hydride batteries and 10% per month for nickel-cadmium batteries.

Here is a short list of pros of caring for your Li-On battery:


  • When you get a new notebook or tablet PC, leave the battery fully charged overnight.
  • Use it to prepare a new battery until it is completely discharged and then fully charge it. Doing this once a month will allow you to accurately calibrate the battery.
  • Always make sure that the battery is recharged as soon as it is completely discharged. Batteries are permanently damaged if left completely empty for long periods of time.
  • Keep in mind that lithium-ion batteries wear down slowly. A new battery always performs better than a 6 month battery.
