A look at cylindrical Lithium-ion batteries

Cylindrical Li-ion batteries are Tesla’s battery of choice, but understanding their structure is important before delving into their use in Elon Musk’s vehicles. Cylindrical Li-ion cells have a significantly different shape from prismatic cells, but their internal design is similar to that of wound prismatic cells. 237 more words

A look at prismatic lithium-ion batteries

There are two cell designs for prismatic lithium-ion batteries: wound and flat-plate. Wound cells in prismatic lithium-ion batteries are generally considered “pseudo-prismatic” designs, whereas flat-plate cells are considered “true prismatic” designs. 380 more words
