Lithium-ion batteries have become a mainstay of modern living because of their interesting physical and chemical properties. Which of the following is not a property of lithium-ion batteries? (A) Being rechargeable, (B) being relatively light, (C) having long life spans, (D) storing large amounts of energy, or (E) being inexpensive.

In this question, we want to know which of the statements is incorrect when discussing the physical and chemical properties of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are a very common rechargeable battery found in many portable electronics, such as cell phones and laptop computers.

There are many different types of lithium-ion batteries. Most of these lithium-ion batteries are designed and manufactured to be relatively light due to their usage in mobile devices. Therefore, being relatively light is a property of lithium-ion batteries. Thus, option (B) cannot be the answer to this question. The same is true for (C), having long life spans, and (D), storing large amounts of energy.

The construction of lithium-ion batteries means that it can operate as a secondary galvanic cell, where a secondary galvanic cell is a type of electrochemical cell that can be run as both a galvanic cell and as an electrolytic cell. This means that a secondary galvanic cell is rechargeable. Therefore, option (A) is not the answer to this question.

One of the few disadvantages related to lithium-ion batteries is the fact that they are expensive. This is due to the fact that lithium and cobalt are costly. From this data, we may deduce that the answer choice that is not a property of lithium-ion batteries is (E), being inexpensive.
