Because Lithium is a light metal it is better at holding electrical charge, which makes it longer lasting on lots of different levels:

  • Battery re-charge cycle – Each time a battery is discharged it loses some of its energy. However with Lithium-Ion batteries if they are stored correctly you can recharge many times before registering any significant loss of capacity. (Please see chart below) 
  • Longer Usage Times - Things that transport – planes, rockets, Bladefish - need to hold on to electrical charge for as long as possible – Lithium power is ideal as, in simple terms, Li-ion batteries last longer before running out.
  • Long Life - The ability of Lithium-Ion batteries   to retain charge means that when the unit is not in use the self-discharge is negligible. Store in a cool place.
