5 ways hybrid battery packs are being improved
Nickel batteries are used in most hybrid car battery packsmetal hydride (NiMH)batteries.
Currently, NiMH batteries are a reliable source of energy for hybrid cars, with long life and relatively cheap prices.
In fact, some of the lower ones
The power battery pack costs only $600.
Of course, the cost of batteries that can provide more power will be higher and higher, the nickel price will be higher and higher, and manufacturers are also considering alternatives with limited potential to reduce costs. The lithium-ion (Li-ion)
The battery is one of them.
Now many people are familiar with lithium.
By using ion battery technology in a variety of electronic devices.
If you own a laptop, or listen to music on an MP3 player, it is likely to be powered by lithium --ion batteries.
They are small and lightweight and attractive to the rechargeable battery market.
For hybrid cars, they offer high
Power and high energy in weight and volume, they are more effective than nickel
Metal hydrogen batteries.
It\'s too early for lithium
Ion technology in hybrid cars-
Its reliability is not verified and the cost is higher than NiMH technology.
However, if more testing and investment continues, you may see smaller and lighter lithium-
Ion battery packs in hybrid cars are fast. If lithium-
Ion batteries don\'t work, cheaper batteries--
Made of surprising materials. -
