This news finally comes after more than two decades of research where improvements to lithium-ion batteries have stalled short of […]

Utah State University chemists have demonstrated a two electron storage anolyte structure for aqueous redox flow batteries. The chemists have designed and synthesized a pi-conjugation-extended viologen molecule. The chemists’ efforts is to develop and advance alternative battery technology solutions and their recent findings are highlighted in new research paper. Tianbiao Liu, assistant professor in USU’s […]

Shinshu University researchers have developed a new way to improve solid state lithium ion battery efficiency. Through the growth of a cubic crystal layer, the scientists have created a thin and dense connecting layer between the electrodes of the battery. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries power such devices as cell phones, laptops, power tools, and are […]

Researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia have demonstrated for the first time a working rechargeable “proton battery” that could re-energize how we power our homes, vehicles and devices. The working prototype proton battery uses a carbon electrode as a hydrogen store, coupled with a reversible fuel cell to produce electricity. As you’ll see, this […]

University of Warwick, WMG, researchers have developed a new direct, precise internal temperature test of lithium-ion batteries. They investigated internal temperatures and the electrodes potentials and found that the batteries can be safely charged up to five times faster than the current recommended charging limits. The new technology works in-situ during a battery’s normal operation […]
