Is the product of voltage and capacity, expressed in watt-hours.
Usually a metallic conductor which serves the purpose of conducting electric charge carriers into a liquid, into a gas, into a vacuum or on to the surface of a solid body.
The decomposition of an ion conducting liquid upon applying a sufficiently high voltage.
Electrically conducting liquid, usually a base, inorganic acid or salt solution.
Negatively charged particle.
Electrically charged particle.
Internal resistance R (Ohm)
Being influenced by ageing, size and temperature of the cell, the internal resistance is responsible for the continuous voltage decrease of the rechargeable battery upon being discharged.
Lithium ion cell, see also Chapter Batteries.
Lithium polymer cell, see also Chapter Batteries.
Lithium cobalt dioxide, active component of the rechargeable lithium ion battery in the positive electrode (graphite is here in the negative electrode).
Effect caused by improper usage such as overcharging and partial discharging of rechargeable NiCd/NiMH batteries. This effect temporarily reduces the capacity of the rechargeable battery. Through several full discharge and charging cycles this effect can be avoided, respectively cancelled.
Nickel cadmium cell, see also Chapter Batteries.
Nickel metal hydride cell, see also Chapter Batteries.
Nickel hydroxide, active component of a rechargeable nickel cadmium battery in the positive electrode (cadmium is here in the negative electrode).
Lead acid cell from latin: plumbum, see also Chapter Batteries.
