Introduced in the early 1990s, the prismatic cell satisfies the demand for thinner sizes and lower manufacturing costs. Wrapped in elegant packages, prismatic cells make optimal use of space by using the layered approach. These cells are predominantly found in mobile phones with lithium-ion. In the recent future, Prismatic cells are also making critical inroads into larger formats. Packaged in welded aluminum housings are primarily used for electric powertrains in hybrid and electric vehicles.
