Washington State University (WSU) and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers have created a sodium-ion battery that holds as much energy and works as well as some commercial lithium-ion battery chemistries. The new battery may be a potentially viable battery technology made out of abundant and cheap materials. The team is reporting one of the […]

Shinshu University scientists are now closer to a thin, high-capacity lithium-ion battery that could open the gates to better energy storage systems for electric vehicles. The research team was led by professor Katsuya Teshima, director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Science (CEES) at Shinshu University in Japan. They published their insights online in […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Michigan researchers assert their new lithium metal technology could double the output of today’s lithium ion cells, drastically extending electric vehicle ranges and time between cell phone charges without taking up any added space. Note as you read along this technology is using the earlier lithium metal technology that predates the current […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists have addressed one of the major disadvantages of all-solid-state batteries by developing batteries with a low resistance at their electrode/solid electrolyte interface. The fabricated batteries showed excellent electrochemical properties that greatly surpass those of traditional and ubiquitous Li-ion batteries; thereby, demonstrating the promise of all-solid-state battery technology and its potential […]

Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists have synthesized a new cathode material from iron fluoride that surpasses the capacity limits of traditional lithium-ion batteries. Scientists are searching for ways to improve lithium-ion batteries, the most common type of battery found in home electronics and a promising solution for grid-scale energy storage. Increasing the energy density of lithium-ion […]
