Lithium-Ion batteries were known to be high powered and heavy-duty as compared to its predecessors such as the Nickel Cadmium and the Alkaline Batteries. During the 1990s the alkaline battery was the most used batteries; it is known to provide power to almost any digital or portable device.

This is was the proffered choice of many during that decade. But everything changed after the introduction of digital cameras and mobile phones especially the battery packs used in these devices. You can shop for 3000mah+ lithium ion batteries online.

Lithium-Ion or Li-ion batteries are the most advanced in various applications such as mobile devices and the like. Previously, a nickel-metal hydride of NiMh and NiCd nickel-cadmium battery is the main battery of choice for portable devices.

But lithium-ion battery has many features that cannot be found in the alkaline, nickel-metal hydride and nickel-cadmium batteries. It should be noted that lithium-ion batteries are totally different from ordinary lithium batteries, which are not able to be replenished. The lithium-ion battery is the only one capable of being for nearly a hundred recharge cycles.

Lithium is considered the mildest form of the metal with the main electrochemical potential. Lithium in it form a pure metal is used in the manufacture and assembly of digital camera and cell phone batteries. Charging lithium-ion batteries have more cycles than the other rechargeable batteries. It can be recharged for about three to five hours max.
