A University of Central Florida researcher is working to make portable devices and electric vehicles stay charged longer by extending the life of the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries powering them. He is doing this by making the batteries more efficient, with some of his latest work focusing on keeping the anode from falling apart over time. […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Université de Genève scientists have developed a non-flammable, solid electrolyte that operates at room temperature. It transports sodium – which is found everywhere on earth – instead of lithium. The lithium batteries that power our electronic devices and electric vehicles have a number of drawbacks. The electrolyte – the medium that enables electrons and […]

Stanford University scientists have identified a new class of solid materials that could replace flammable liquid electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries. The discovery could help battery researchers design the first solid electrolytes that are safe, cheap and efficient. According to the scientists the low-cost materials, made of lithium, boron and sulfur, could improve the safety and […]

POSTECH Professor Byoungwoo Kang’s research team has uncovered a new Li-ion battery electrode material that can achieve high-energy density and high power capability per volume without reducing particle size. With Tesla in the lead, the electric vehicle market is growing around the world. Unlike conventional cars that use internal combustion engines, electric cars are commonly […]

Stanford University researchers have designed a new model that offers a way to predict the condition of a battery’s internal systems in real-time with far more accuracy than existing tools. In electric cars, the technology could improve driving range estimates and prolong battery life. The reality is batteries fade as they age, slowly losing power […]
