Ohio State University researchers have built a more efficient, more reliable potassium-oxygen battery, a step toward a potential solution for energy storage on the nation’s power grid and longer-lasting batteries in cell phones and laptops. In a study published in the journal Batteries and Supercaps, researchers from Ohio State University detailed their findings centering around […]

Chalmers University of Technology researchers recently unveiled a promising breakthrough for the lithium sulfur battery, using a catholyte with the help of a graphene sponge. Lithium sulfur batteries, which offer a theoretical energy density more than five times that of lithium ion batteries could meet the demands of an electric future when new battery technologies […]

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researchers have created a lithium-ion battery that can charge in a matter of minutes but still operate at a high capacity as is possible. The development has the potential to improve battery performance for consumer electronics, solar grid storage, and electric vehicles. The paper explaining the results as been published in Nature […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Scientists at Stanford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Toyota Research Institute have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars. Its an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing. If manufacturers of cell-phone batteries could tell which […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have found a new way to make cathodes for lithium batteries, offering improvements in the amount of power for both a given weight and a given volume. Researchers around the globe have been on a quest for batteries that pack a punch but are smaller and lighter than today’s versions, […]
