Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a new battery technology based on a metal-mesh membrane and electrodes made of molten sodium. The technology could open the way for more intermittent, renewable power sources on the grid. A type of battery first invented nearly five decades ago could catapult to the forefront of […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have reported that a new lithium-sulfur battery component allows a doubling in capacity compared to a conventional lithium-sulfur battery, even after more than 100 charge cycles. Lithium-sulfur batteries are promising candidates for replacing today’s common lithium-ion batteries in electronics and electric vehicles since they are cheaper, weigh less, and can […]

Swiss EMPA researchers have succeeded in doubling the electrochemical stability of water with a special saline solution bringing us one step closer to using the technology commercially. This research could very well lead to a basis for a future with particularly inexpensive rechargeable batteries. The press release begins by asking during the hunt to find […]

Northwestern University researchers have found a way to make a lithium battery last longer with more capacity and cheaper. The team used iron and oxygen to simultaneously drive the electrochemical reaction. Experience suggests Christopher Wolverton’s super lithium-rich battery should not work. For one, the novel battery uses iron, an inexpensive metal that has notoriously failed […]

A new insight into battery charging is a technique capable of determining lithium metal plating during lithium ion battery charging that supports development of improved electric vehicles. The new technique developed by researchers at Technische Universität München, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and RWTH Aachen University, published in Elsevier’s Materials Today, provides a unique insight into how the […]
