The differences between ternary lithium ion battery and Hydrogen fuel cell

November 21,2017
The battery which we are familiar with is also widely used in electric vehicles, there are two different types, one is  lithium ion batteries, the other one is hydrogen cell. Looking at the current development of electric vehicles battery, there is still a big difference between them. 

Let's talk about the ternary lithium battery. First of all, ternary lithium ion battery is with high energy density, good cycle performance, thus extending the life. With the rapid development of science and technology, major domestic and foreign car companies have designed their own battery management system, making the safety of electric vehicles with protection.

As the name suggests, fuel cell is the core, this technology is not yet mature in China. However, in some developed countries such as the United States, Japan and South Korea, it is widely used. Especially in Japan, the biggest carmakers have already worked hard on hydrogen power. More than a year ago Toyota introduced its new fuel-powered car, Mirai, which is already on sale in Japan.

This fuel cell is different from the traditional lithium-ion battery, which can quickly fill the battery with fuel in 3-5 minutes and travel longer distances. For the traditional charging of new energy vehicles, this has become a luxury. Of course, in addition to charging convenience, hydrogen fuel cells also face many problems. Hydrogen fuel will consume more energy than ordinary electric vehicles, pollution has naturally become a big problem. Second, the price of fuel cell vehicles and maintenance costs are more expensive than electric vehicles. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles seem overshadowed by comparing with the relatively environmentally friendly and economical electric cars.

The rapid development of new energy vehicles also led to the vigorous development of the battery industry, but also represents the development trend of the new energy automotive industry. At the same time, we also have reason to believe that the future development of new energy vehicles battery technology will be getting better!
