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

Physicist Winfried Wilcke working at IBM’s Almaden laboratories, based in San Jose, California in a report by Duncan Graham-Rowe in NewScientist allows that IBM’s Battery 500 project to find an air battery solution for electric vehicles (EVs), has found a starting solution. The assertion now is IBM believes it has solved a fundamental problem that […]

The research team at Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) can show heat-treated metal-free graphene nanosheets (GNS) have much more stable cycling performance in a Lithium-air battery. This might be important and does show a research lead, because of lithium air’s capacity of 5-10 times that of standard Lithium-ion batteries.  That […]

Binod Kumar, leader of the University of Dayton Research Institute has published in the 2010 Issue 1 of the Journal of the Electrochemical Society that the group has developed the first solid-state, rechargeable lithium-air battery.  Kumar is calling this a breakthrough designed to address the fire and explosion risk of other lithium rechargeable batteries and […]

IBM has made a major splash in the battery industry with their announcement that the company is going to research lithium air battery technology. They are a little further along than the press and media are allowing.  IBM plans to get a jump on the process by using its nano membrane technology developed for water-purification […]
