Laptop batteries early began in the 1980s and have come a long way since then. Portable computers were run by these notebook batteries. But really how were laptop batteries made? And what were they made of?

Laptop batteries consist of several electrical chemistry. Batteries use electrical conductors to provide power for laptops and other electrical devices. There are varied types of electrical conductors used for different kinds of batteries. The electrical conductors are Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), Lithium-ion (Li-ion), Lithium-Ion Polymer (LiP),and Silver-Zinc. These were manufactured by major brands like Dell, Acer, Apple, Compaq, Toshiba, HP, Fujitsu, Lenovo, IBM and Asus. Among the notebook batteries, Li-ion proved to be more efficient than the others because of it does not suffer from the ‘memory effect’ which most laptop computer batteries suffer. However, the they were expensive and has an undesirable side effect of exploding when recharged for too long.
