That porosity is important for batteries because it creates more space for the storage and transfer of energy, a critical component to improving battery performance. In addition, the high potassium salt concentration in mushrooms creates more pores over time, gradually increasing its capacity. A conventional anode allows lithium to fully access most of the material during the first few cycles but capacity degrades from electrode damage from that point on. The mushroom carbon anode technology could enable a battery that actually perform
