University of Surrey researchers have found a ground-breaking development of technology that could revolutionize the capabilities of appliances that have previously relied on battery power to work. The development could translate into very high energy density supercapacitors making it possible to recharge your mobile phone, laptop or other mobile devices in just a few seconds. […]

MIT’s new approach to the design of a liquid battery uses a passive, gravity-fed arrangement similar to an old-fashioned hourglass. The concept could offer great advantages due to the system’s low cost and the simplicity of its design and operation. The MIT team of researchers has made a demonstration version of the new battery. Liquid […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers have made an unexpected discovery leading to a rechargeable battery that’s as inexpensive as conventional car batteries, but has a much higher energy density. The new battery could become a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative for storing renewable energy and supporting the power grid. The team identified this energy storage […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is announcing a new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery that uses an electrolyte that has more than two times the energy density of the next-best flow battery and may exceed lithium-ion. The new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery is described in the team’s paper published in Nature Communications. The zinc-polyiodide redox energy […]

A Virginia Tech research team has developed an organic biobattery based on sugar and has an unmatched energy density.  The development that could replace conventional batteries with ones those are cheaper, refillable, and biodegradable. Y.H. Percival Zhang, an associate professor of biological systems engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College […]
