This New Solid-State Battery Can Change the Energy Storage Industry

John Goodenough, a professor in the Univesity of Texas, and his team of engineers were able to develop a battery in a solid state. The lack of any toxic liquid in a battery allows the battery to be safer and long lasting. In fact, since this developed battery is rechargeable, it can be used in mobile devices, electric cars, and energy storage. This innovation’s main aim was to develop a cheaper, long lasting energy storage with a battery in solid state. Since the battery’s contents aren’t in liquid form, the battery has a much higher energy density. A higher energy density means that a car can drive more miles between charges. This, of course, allows a new perspective on the capacity of electric cars. Additionally, the charging time has also decreased drastically with the new battery; it has decreased to minutes from hours. More information about the battery was published ...
