Military battery | The advantages of lithium-ion batteries are irreplaceable and will be the main choice for future military equipment
As a new generation of rechargeable power sources, lithium-ion batteries have the advantages of high energy density, high working voltage, wide operating temperature range, long cycle life, and high safety performance. They are the mainstream development direction of current rechargeable batteries. It also has the characteristics of low maintenance requirements and no memory effect. It can be charged and discharged at any time during combat, and hardly requires any battlefield maintenance, reducing the logistical burden. Therefore, it has received the attention and development of the military of various countries. In recent years, lithium-ion batteries have been widely used in military equipment such as individual combat systems, submarines, unmanned aerial vehicles, and aerospace vehicles, and have shown broad application prospects in the land, sea, air, and space fields.
Lithium-ion batteries have the following advantages in military applications. The working voltage is high. The discharge voltage of a lithium-ion battery is equivalent to that of three traditional batteries. Under the same conditions of use, the battery usage is greatly reduced. High energy density. It is 2 to 3 times that of ordinary batteries, plus small size and light weight, it has irreplaceable advantages for field portable electronic equipment. Long cycle life. The service life is as long as 10 to 15 years. Compared with the traditional battery of 7 to 8 years, the impact of high cost is reduced. No environmental pollution. It does not contain heavy metals such as lead and mercury, and is a clean "green" energy source. No memory effect. It can be charged and discharged at will, and it shows excellent performance especially in wartime and emergency situations. Low maintenance rate. Hardly any maintenance is required, reducing the logistics burden during wartime. In addition, there are advantages such as high safety performance and wide operating temperature range.
