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 […]

University of Maryland researchers have figured out how to increase a rechargeable battery’s capacity by using aggressive electrodes. They stabilizing these potentially dangerous electrode materials with a highly-fluorinated electrolyte. The success of electric car batteries depends on the miles that can be driven on a single charge, but the current crop of lithium-ion batteries are […]
