In recent years, the exponential growth in portable electronics has driven the demand for compact, rechargeable lithium ion batteries offering high energy density. The future challenges, e.g., decarbonisation of the CO2 intensive transportation sector, will entail the need for high energy, and high power density batteries will continue to see growth. Moreover, lithium ion batteries are gaining importance for other applications, e.g., stationary applications.
The cost of lithium ion batteries has halved in the last few years and lithium ion batteries are expected to dominate the battery market in the following years. However, despite progress, there is still a need for improvements in lithium ion batteries’ performance. Further improvements are required not only in the field of electrochemistry but also in developing better manufacturing methods, diagnostic algorithms, lifetime prediction methods, battery management systems and addressing safety concerns. Therefore, this Special Issue is focused on the recent progress and developments in lithium ion batteries.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Electrical, thermal and electrochemical testing and modeling;
- Lifetime testing ageing mechanisms and lifetime prediction;
- Diagnosis and prognostic methods;
- Materials and advanced manufacturing methods;
- Battery cell and pack design;
- Emerging technologies and applications of lithium ion batteries;
- Life cycle assessment;
- Safety concerns;
- Sizing and thermal management methods;
- Battery management systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Batteries is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
