The first lithium battery production plant in Iran was inaugurated.
Iran's defense minister Hossein Dehqan said at the inauguration ceremony that lithium batteries are widely used in military and telecommunication industries, Iran's Tasnim news agency reported on October 14.
The factory will produce lithium batteries of 5.2 million amp-hour capacity annually, he added.
Lithium batteries are disposable (primary) batteries that have lithium metal or lithium compounds as an anode. They stand apart from other batteries in their high charge density (long life) and high cost per unit.
