Just Add Water – Lithium-Air Battery Energy Storage Increases by 500%

Lithium-Air Battery Energy Storage Capacity Increases, Up to Five Times, Just Add Water! Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have stumbled upon a solution to the “sudden death” phenomenon in lithium-air battery chemistry: just add water! New rechargeable battery technology is constanty in development, as we’ve spent lots of time covering here, from solid-state lithium-ion battery technology to metal-air battery chemistry. Many of these technologies, such as lithium-air battery technology, hold the promise of more energy storage, cheaper energy storage, or both, but often don’t make it to production. This, of course, could be for a number of reasons, from basic reliability and durability problems to unrealistic expectations. In comparison to current lithium-ion battery technology, lithium-air could hold up to twice the energy, but suffers from a phenomenon known as “s...
