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 […]

University of California – San Diego nanoengineers have developed a safety feature that prevents lithium metal batteries from rapidly overheating and catching fire in case of an internal short circuit. The clever tweak does not prevent battery failure, but rather provides advance warning of failure and makes it much safer. The team made a clever […]
