DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers reported a polymer-based electrolyte makes for batteries that keep working – and don’t catch fire – when heated to over 140° F. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries power phones, laptops, other personal electronics and electric cars, and are even used to store energy generated by solar panels. But if the temperature of […]

University of Sydney researchers have announced a new low-cost battery built with four times the capacity of lithium ion. The researchers are hoping that a new, low-cost battery is far cheaper to produce will significantly reduce the cost of transitioning to a decarbonized economy. Led by Dr Shenlong Zhao from the University’s School of Chemical […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A University of Tokyo team of researchers has discovered a new mechanism to stabilize the lithium metal electrode and electrolyte in lithium metal batteries. This new mechanism, which does not depend on the traditional kinetic approach, has potential to greatly enhance the energy density of batteries increasing the amount of energy stored relative to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A City University of Hong Kong research team has discovered an innovative way to boost metal carbon dioxide battery capacity by introducing an unconventional phase nanomaterial as a catalyst, boosting battery energy efficiency up to 83.8%. The metal-carbon dioxide battery is a promising and environmentally friendly technology and the study reveals a novel design […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s new discovery could finally usher the development of solid-state lithium batteries, which would be more lightweight, compact, and safe than current lithium batteries. The growth of metallic filaments called dendrites within the solid electrolyte has been a longstanding obstacle, but the new study explains how dendrites form and how to divert […]
