New Lithium-Ion Battery Uses Peroxide To Boost Energy Density By 7 Times: Report

By Antony Ingram 181 views Jul 27, 2014 Follow Antony Reddit This! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Chevrolet Spark EV at CCS fast charging station in San Diego. Enlarge Photo All electric vehicles currently in production use some form of lithium-ion chemistry in their battery packs. Finding ways of improving that chemistry is therefore very important--the aim being to make future electric car batteries cheaper, more stable and more energy-dense for longer range. Researchers from the School of Engineering at the University of Tokyo have found a way to develop a lithium-based battery with seven times the energy density of current lithium-ion batteries, according to Nikkei Technology . This has, at least theoretically, each of the major benefits you'd expect should it be introduced in production form--lower cost, greater capacity and increased safety. Led by Professor Nori...
