    The past three decades have seen the remarkable success of lithium-ion batteries as power source for portable electronic devices. Furthermore, Lithium ion batteries can and will find applications to power hybrid and pure electric vehicle for land, water and air, as well as for stationary power system, back-up system, integrated with renewable energy production facilities (e.g. solar, wind, biomass), and with smart grid. Their possible use for the most disparate applications has rendered lithium-ion the greatest key energy storage technology to help us with the transition to a more sustainable society.
    Constant research & development, high quality production of advanced materials for lithium ion batteries and cutting edge cells manufacturing process technologies are the recipes to be a master in today and future lithium ion battery industry. Why are different types of lithium ion active materials suitable only for certain industrial applications today? Which type of limitations has today the lithium ion battery industry? How is it possible to overcome the limit of today technology?
    These questions will be answered by over-viewing the advanced active materials (anode and cathode) and electrolytes currently employed for cutting edge lithium ion technology, by describing current lithium ion cells manufacturing industry technology, and by envisioning research directions to overcome today lithium ion batteries technology constraints.
