Ongoing innovations in product design and broad adoption of lithium ion (Li-ion) battery technology have contributed to rapid growth in battery-powered appliances, particularly in current designs that offer greater battery capacity than earlier generation products. Not only has battery technology replaced the use of mains supply in many electrical products, it is also becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to fuel-burning technology in lawn and garden applications. Using batteries to power these appliances can offer significant additional advantages including greater operating safety, lower maintenance requirements, reduced noise, and low emissions for a healthier and cleaner environment.
