Australia’s Monash University researchers have developed the world’s most efficient lithium-sulfur battery, capable of powering a smartphone for five continuous days. The prototype cells have been developed in Germany. Further testing in cars and solar grids is to take place in Australia during 2020. The researchers have a filed patent on the manufacturing process, and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… American Institute of Physics researchers have looked to lithium sulfur batteries because of sulfur’s high theoretical capacity and energy density to develop higher capacity batteries. Lithium ion batteries aren’t keeping up with energy demands from higher power electronic devices, electric vehicles and smart electric grids. To develop higher capacity batteries, researchers have looked to […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have reported that a new lithium-sulfur battery component allows a doubling in capacity compared to a conventional lithium-sulfur battery, even after more than 100 charge cycles. Lithium-sulfur batteries are promising candidates for replacing today’s common lithium-ion batteries in electronics and electric vehicles since they are cheaper, weigh less, and can […]

Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have made a surprising discovery that could fix lithium-sulfur battery capacity fading. But for the capacity fading, lithium-sulfur batteries have great potential as a low-cost, high-energy, energy storage medium for both vehicle and grid applications. Gao Liu the corresponding author of the paper research paper said, “There’s a lot of demand […]

University of Delaware researchers have demonstrated a new polysulfide entrapping strategy that greatly improves the cycle stability of Lithium Sulfide batteries. This may be significant as the energy density of lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries is five times higher than that of Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries. Rechargeable Li-ion batteries are the power behind most modern portable electronics. But […]
