Stanford University’s new machine learning method has slashed battery testing times – a key barrier to longer-lasting, faster-charging batteries for electric vehicles – by nearly fifteenfold. Battery performance can make or break the electric vehicle experience, from driving range to charging time to the lifetime of the car. Now, artificial intelligence has made dreams like […]

First to get out a press release was Australian scientists who have developed a nonflammable electrolyte for potassium and potassium-ion batteries. Then a couple weeks later researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic demonstrated how they can overcome a persistent challenge known as dendrites to create a potassium metal battery that performs nearly as well as a lithium-ion […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology research could lead to batteries that can pack more power per pound and last longer. The research is focused on the long-sought goal of using pure lithium metal as one of the battery’s two electrodes, the anode. The new electrode concept comes from the laboratory of Ju Li, the Battelle Energy […]

University of California – San Diego researchers have developed an ultrasound-emitting device that brings lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, one step closer to commercial viability. Although the research team focused on LMBs, the device can be used in any battery, regardless of the chemistry. The device that the researchers developed is an integral part of […]

Research leader Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk of the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at University of Southern Denmark pointed out, “The Na-ion battery is still under development, and researchers are working on increasing its service life, lowering its charging time and making batteries that can deliver many watts.” Now the race is on to develop […]
