Lithium Polymer or Lithium Polymer Metal (LMP)

The next big thing in rechargeable battery technology. The result of a joint research project between 3M, USABC, DOE and Hydro-Quebec originally developed for electric cars.

It is basically a Li-Ion battery laminate, flattened to about a milimeter thick. The first industry to mass-produce LiPo is Avestor of Boucherville, Quebec.
