­Cheap Battery has Four Times the Capacity of Lithium-Ion

The sodium-sulphur battery has four times the energy capacity of lithium-ion batteries.

  There has been a lot of research done on molten-salt batteries in recent times. The technology has a very high energy density and can often be cheaper to produce than other technologies. They are also less toxic than the Li-ion batteries that we often use now for energy storage. The low cost aspect

Long-Life Electrode Material for Solid-State Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries in today's electric vehicles don’t deliver the necessary performance and durability at a reasonable price.

  Solid-state batteries (SSBs) look as if they will win the battle to become the technology that replaces the lithium-ion batteries we currently use, especially in applications such as electric vehicles. They have all the positive attributes of Li-ion batteries, but their solid electrolyte is safer and

­EV Batteries Deliver 100 Miles Range in 5 Minutes Charging

StoreDot’s extreme fast charging (XFC) batteries for EVs have been successfully validated by an independent battery lab

  A lot of the content in this column concerns batteries. The reason for that coverage is that more advanced batteries are essential to the progress of many technologies, especially those that will cut our dependence on carbon-based energy. Any entity that can make batteries charge faster, hold more ener
