What is in an EV battery?

The critical metals in most batteries include:

Lithium, graphite, cobalt, nickel and manganese. (Could we show their periodic symbol

 The lithium-ion battery (LIB) is expected to dominate the supply of rechargeable Electric Vehicle batteries in the near future. 

The smallest component of the lithium-ion battery is the electrochemical cell consisting of:

  • an anode (graphite)
  • a cathode (a combination of different materials)
  • An electrolyte (lithium) which connects the anode and cathode.
