For several years, nickel-cadmium had been the only panacea for powering up the electronic equipment, be it a mobile phone, car, laptop or any devices you just name it, we had to count on nickel-cadmium based batteries. Fortunately, three genius minds finally came up with a promising solution and laid the foundation of lithium-ion batteries’ legacy. The lithium-ions had been invented many decades ago though, but these Nobel laureate: John B Goodenough, M Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino bring it to life [1-5].
