from Asian Scientist Magazine
Lithium is an essential component of rechargeable batteries used almost ubiquitously in mobile gadgets such as phones, laptops, tablet computers and in many electric vehicles. Worldwide annual consumption of this metal grew from 15,100 tons in 2003 to 37,000 tons by 2012, a 145 per cent increase and demand is expected to rise even further as we move more towards sustainable power and electrical storage capacity increases.
