Washington University in St. Louis scientists have developed a stable, anode-free sodium ion battery that is highly efficient, will be less expensive and is significantly smaller than a traditional lithium ion battery. At the moment for batteries lithium-ion is the best we have as far as energy density and convenience. The Washington University in St. […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher’s new approach could help solve the longstanding problem of dendrite formation, which has hampered the development of new solid-state lithium-ion batteries. As researchers push the boundaries of battery design, seeking to pack ever greater amounts of power and energy into a given amount of space or weight, one of the […]

An international research team has now developed concrete guidelines for how lithium metal batteries should be charged and operated, maximizing efficiency while minimizing the risk of short circuits. There are high hopes for the next generation of high energy-density lithium metal batteries, but before they can be used in our vehicles, there are crucial problems […]

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology researchers have made a prototype of an anode-free, zinc-based battery that uses low-cost, naturally abundant materials. The research group has reported therir progress in in ACS’s Nano letters. Aqueous zinc-based batteries have been previously explored for grid-scale energy storage because of their safety and high energy density. In […]

Stanford University researchers have designed a new electrolyte for lithium metal batteries that could increase the driving range of electric cars. The improvement is enough that the press release suggests the new lithium-based electrolyte invented by Stanford University scientists could pave the way for the next generation of battery-powered electric vehicles. In a study published […]
