At the time, there were only three planned plants, Tesla’s Gigafactory in the US, LG Chem’s plant in Nanjing, China and Foxconn’s plant in Anhui, China which didn’t make it off the drawing board.
Lithium polymer cells have evolved from lithium-ion and lithium-metal batteries . The primary difference is that instead of using a liquid lithium -salt electrolyte (such as LiPF 6 ) held in an organic solvent (such as EC / DMC / DEC ), the battery uses a solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) such as poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), poly(acrylonitrile) (PAN), poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) or poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVdF).
