Mr Whittingham, who has become the second Briton to win a Nobel Prize this year, developed the first functioning lithium battery in the early 1970s.

The battery's potential was doubled by Mr Goodenough, with Mr Yoshino making the batteries safer to use.

Mr Yoshino spoke on Japanese television after hearing about his win, saying that he was happy to have helped develop more environmentally friendly forms of power.

"I hope this will become an encouragement for young researchers," he said.

A member of the Nobel committee for chemistry, Peter Somfai, explained why it was clear that the trio should win the award.

"This is a technology we use every day. Most people have a mobile phone, electric vehicles are getting more popular.

"So, it's pretty straightforward why it's an important discovery."

Nobel Prizes, for physics and chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace, were founded by Alfred Nobel, a Swedish industrialist and the inventor of dynamite.

The winners of the latest prizes will receive their gold medal, cash and diploma at a ceremony on 10 December, the anniversary of Nobel's death in 1896.
