the future of electric car batteries – 500 miles and beyond via @sharethis

One of the biggest factors limiting electric vehicle proliferation is their limited battery range for long distance travel. That being the case, technology giant IBM has now focused their development prowess on what is known as the “Battery 500 Project ”, allowing electric vehicles to have a range surpassing 500 miles. The main design feature of the newly developed battery is that it will be oxygen breathing — meaning that the air that comes in through the battery will be utilized as a reactant with lithium ions to create and dischcarge electric energy, and then the same oxygen will be transferred out as the reaction occurs almost as if nothing had happened. IBM has recently gathered an eclectic group of researchers to tackle the project and now optimism is flourishing about the current progress being made. “Unlike what we originally thought, we know we have a really...
