Is a High Water Content Damaging your Lithium-Ion Batteries?

 Learn how to ensure high quality and prevent water from damaging your batteries

When it comes to batteries, water is poison

Lithium-ion batteries exist in various forms for different applications. From mm-scale button cells for med tech applications to big battery packs in electric vehicles. In simple terms, manufacturers successively stack cathode and anode sheets, aluminum (cathode) or copper (anode) foil with active material on both sides and separate them with a polymer separator. These are brought together into a housing and the liquid electrolyte is added to produce the final battery. The water content of each component needs to be as low as possible.

This white paper dives into more detail: 

  • What makes water poisonous to lithium-ion batteries
  • How water greatly reduces battery performance 
  • Why water testing in LIBs is critical to ensure high quality 
  • A solution for measuring water content in the main components before it’s too late
