A Super Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Inspired By..... Pomegranates? Poms could influence silicon battery design.

“Silicon anodes could store 10 times more charge than the graphite anodes in today’s rechargeable lithium-ion batteries , but they also have major drawbacks: The brittle silicon swells and falls apart during battery charging, and it reacts with the battery’s electrolyte to form gunk that coats the anode and degrades its performance,” explain researchers at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, a joint effort of Stanford and the DOE.
