Question about lithium battery

  1. Jul 27, 2013 #1
    Why can't primary lithium batteries (that are not lithium IONS) be developed as secondary batteries?
    Can someone explain this to me?

    I can't address your specific query. But for what it's worth, I recall that the first commercial lithium AA rechargeables were soon taken off the market due to patchy reliability and some exploding. They were not Li-ions, and I think it was an Israeli manufacturer. Tadiran, if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't know, but maybe there is some connection between that and your question. :smile:
