Chinese researchers develop novel aluminum–graphite dual-ion battery 25 March 2016 A team from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has developed a novel, environmentally friendly low-cost battery. The new aluminum-graphite dual-ion battery (AGDIB) offers significantly reduced weight, volume, and fabrication cost, as well as higher energy density, in comparison with conventional LIBs. The battery shows a reversible capacity of ≈100 mAh g−1 and a capacity retention of 88% after 200 charge–discharge cycles. A packaged aluminum–graphite battery is estimated to deliver an energy density of ≈150 Wh kg−1 at a power density of ≈1200 W kg−1 —≈50% higher than most commercial lithium-ion batteries. A paper on the work is published in the journal Advanced Energy Materials . LIBs are widely used in portable electronic devices, electr...
