Battery grade lithium is what is created when lithium ore is refined and processed in order to be made into a battery that can charge for transportation, such as an electric vehicle. Battery grade lithium is the most important resource for batteries today. Here's what it is, how it is refined, and why it is so important.

Battery costs are declining and will eventually make EVs cheaper to buy over time.
Solar panels continue to go down in cost and by 2030, will be extraordinarily cheap for energy production.
Lithium is an abundant mineral in the earth. However, about 150 TWh of it are needed for a sustainable energy future. How can this be achieved?
Tesla is reported to be in talks to buy Lithium mining company, Sigma. This will help Tesla meet the continued demand for its EVs (electric vehicles) and possibly to accelerate their production.
Battery packs are still very expensive - however, costs are coming down and by the end of the decade, it will most likely cost just a couple of thousand dollars to replace the battery pack on your EV (electric vehicle).
Energy, Voltage, and Amps - the Critical Need to Understand Energy and Electricity in the Electrification Age
Understanding energy, voltage, and amps is critical to understand electricity and the batteries we all use - and will be using in the future.
As part of the movement toward clean energy, there is a $2 billion Lithium mine at Thacker Pass in Nevada scheduled for work in the United States. It's drawing praise and ire at the same time.
Lithium air electrode batteries are an interesting kind of battery. They have the potential to double battery power, life span, and a host of other things, but they are currently unproven. If they are able to be perfected, they could be the next stage of battery development.
