About Carbon Anode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries

Lithium ion batteries are light weight and feature high output and long lifespans, and are therefore primarily used in eco-friendly automobiles, laptop computers and mobile phones.
When lithium ion batteries are charged, the lithium ions are transported to and from the cathode and anode of the battery. Carbon anode materials are used in the anodes of these batteries, and are an indispensable component in improving their quality.

Characteristics of Hitachi Chemical's Carbon Anode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries

Hitachi Chemical's carbon anode materials are characterized by their structure.
In creating these materials, we use graphite particles that are filled with fine holes, which we shape into spheres using a patented technology. This structure facilitates the smooth transference of lithium ions, allowing the battery to be charged more quickly. Other characteristics of these materials are their high capacity and long lifespans.
