Some of the battery types we recycle are:
- Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries: Widely used in portable electronics, electric vehicles, and aerospace applications due to their high energy density and lightweight properties.
- Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) Batteries: Known for their robust performance in extreme temperatures, these batteries are often found in power tools, aviation, and emergency lighting systems.
- Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) Batteries: Common in hybrid vehicles and consumer electronics, offering a good balance between cost, lifespan, and environmental friendliness.
- Lead-Acid Batteries: Predominantly used in automotive starters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and emergency lighting, known for their reliability and high current output.
- Alkaline Batteries: Often used in household items like remote controls, toys, and flashlights, these batteries are known for their long shelf-life and stable voltage output.
- Silver-Oxide Batteries: Frequently found in small devices like watches, hearing aids, and some medical devices due to their high energy-to-weight ratio.
- Zinc-Carbon Batteries: An older technology, these are typically used in low-drain devices like remote controls and wall clocks.
- Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Batteries: Known for their long lifespans and stability, they are used in applications like electric vehicles and solar energy storage.
- Lithium Polymer (LiPo) Batteries: Similar to Li-Ion but with a polymer electrolyte, these are used in applications requiring thin, lightweight batteries, like mobile phones and radio-controlled aircraft.
- Sodium-Ion Batteries: Emerging as an alternative to lithium-ion, especially in grid storage and some electric vehicles, offering cost advantages and abundant raw material availability.
