Rechargeable Lithium ion batteries (LIB) have become the technology of choice for today’s energy storage needs. However, the development of LIB has been accompanied by technological failures, ranging from premature end of life to more concerning safety hazards such as explosions. In order to predict the behavior of new technologies prior their commercialization, it is necessary to study the degradation mechanisms occurring in a specific system via aging of the cells. In this talk, we will discuss the effect of cell storage prior cycling which can lead to degradation of the pristine cell and participate in its failure.
