Lithium batteries are primary batteries that contain lithium metal anodes.

The average battery works using an aqueous electrolyte or a moist electrolyte paste, though a solid state battery operates using a solid electrolyte. Solid state lithium batteries are an example of this, where a solid Lithium bar serves as the anode, a bar of Lithium sulfide or Vanadium oxide serves as the cathode and a polymer, allowing the passage of ions and notelectrons, acts as the electrolyte. This battery is advantageous in that Lithium possess the highest negative value of standard reduction potential. It is also a light metal and thusly less mass is required to generate 1 mole of electrons. It is a rechargeable battery and it can provide a direct current of about 3 volts

“High energy density - potential for yet higher capacities.

Does not need prolonged priming when new. One regular charge is all that's needed.

Relatively low self-discharge - self-discharge is less than half that of nickel-based batteries.

Low Maintenance - no periodic discharge is needed; there is no memory.

Specialty cells can provide very high current to applications such as power tools.”
