Could you summarize the article into a nutshell?
Charging lithium-ion batteries is simpler than nickel-based systems. The charge circuit is straight forward; voltage and current limitations are easier to accommodate than analyzing complex voltage signatures, which change as the battery ages. The charge process can be intermittent, and Li-ion does not need saturation as is the case with lead acid. This offers a major advantage for renewable energy storage such as a solar panel and wind turbine, which cannot always fully charge the battery. The absence of trickle charge further simplifies the charger. Equalizing charger, as is required with lead acid, is not necessary with Li-ion.
What do you think about the article? How difficult to charge?
Lithium batteries are clearly superior to nickel based, except price, but it's about time a new technology emerged, as batteries continue to be the weak link in all electrical/electronic equipment using them.
