Lithium-ion batteries are playing a crucial role in the transition to sustainable energy. You can find these batteries inside all of your portable electronics, for example in your smartphone, but also in your E-Bike and other electric vehicles. Unfortunately, these batteries degrade and lose capacity faster than necessary, because regular chargers are not focused on maximizing the lifetime of batteries.
Liion Power is working on a sustainable solution for this problem; a universal Battery Life Extender. The device is simply implemented in between your normal charger and battery, and keeps the battery healthy by charging it in a smarter way.
If everyone decides to (use this Battery Life Extender to) charge their batteries in a more sustainable way, together we can change the focus of the entire battery industry from a throw-away and profit first mindset to a sustainable mindset.
