Researchers have improved the performance and safety of lithium-ion batteries, increasing not only the battery's voltage delivery but also its ability to suppress dangerous conditions.
Researchers made a tweak to the part of the battery called the separator, so that it slows down the flow of energy (and thus heat) that builds up inside the battery when it short circuits.
Organic electrode materials are considered to be extremely promising materials for sustainable batteries with high power capabilities.
Researchers have developed a new type of battery that combines negative capacitance and negative resistance within the same cell, allowing the cell to self-charge without losing energy.
Scientists have developed a nonflammable electrolyte for potassium and potassium-ion batteries, for applications in next-generation energy-storage systems beyond lithium technology.
Researchers are improving the performance of lithium–air batteries, bringing us closer to electric cars that can use oxygen to run longer before they need to recharge.
Australian researchers are on the brink of commercialising what is claimed to be the world's most efficient lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery.
NGK INSULATORS and BASF New Business have entered into a joint development agreement to develop the next generation of sodium‒sulfur batteries.
Scientists have uncovered a root cause of the growth of the needle-like structures that plague lithium batteries, sometimes causing a short circuit, failure or even a fire.
The electrode was found to improve the practical energy density of a lithium–sulfur battery to three to five times higher than that of lithium-ion batteries.
By using synthetic polypeptides — which make up proteins — and other polymers, US researchers have taken the first steps towards constructing electrodes for sustainable organic batteries.
CSIRO and Piotrek have partnered to develop the next generation of solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) for lithium batteries.
The MAX17301 and MAX17311 one-cell, pack-side ICs offer configurable settings for battery safety and allow fine-tuning of voltage and current thresholds based on various temperature zones.
Is a big leap in Li-ion battery technology around the corner, or does the technology represent only a waypoint on the journey to a power source offering far more time between recharges?
The repurposed 2 kWh units could be used in developing countries or isolated communities, with enough energy to power a small shop, farm holding or multiple residential homes.
