In this first tutorial Dr. Spotnitz provides an overview of batteries, including a brief history of battery development. Interest in lithium ion batteries centers around their vehicular applications. and Dr. Spotnitz reviews the types of batteries currently used in hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrids (PHEV) and vehicles fully powered by batteries (battery electric vehicles or BEV).

In a detailed discussion of batteries, he introduces the terminology, the battery market, types of batteries currently available, and the battery specification process. Finally, Dr. Spotnitz discusses Smart batteries and the various standards available for batteries.
