Rechargeable batteries for a variety of devices like mobile phones, laptops,
digital camera and more utilize lithium. Certain non-rechargeable batteries
for items like clocks and pacemakers also make use of the metal. Lithium metal
can also to form alloys with aluminum or magnesium, which is used for armor
plating and in aircraft, bicycles, and trains. Lithium carbonate is used in the
