Degradation of lithium-ion batteries

The success of electric vehicles (EVs) depends largely on their energy storage system. Among electrical energy storage devices, lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries currently feature the best properties to meet the wide range of requirements specific to automotive applications – high energy density, long lifetime, good power capabilities  and (relatively) low cost. However, safety and reliability of Li-ion batteries can be problematic if they are not handled appropriately.
