Experimental nanowire-based battery cell recharges 100,000 times or more

Stephen Edelstein 494 views Apr 28, 2016 UCI doctoral candidate Mya Le Thai with experimental nanowire-based battery cell Enlarge Photo Many of the obstacles impeding widespread electric-car adoption—including range, durability, charging times, and cost—can be traced to the limits of current battery technology. That's produced a huge expansion in basic research into potential replacements for the lithium-ion chemistry that currently dominates the industry. One such project is underway at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), where researchers claim to have invented a battery cell with a much longer lifespan than current cells. DON'T MISS: What Comes After Lithium-Ion Batteries To Power Electric Cars, And When? (Dec 2015) The nanowire-based cell can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, well beyond what conventional lithium-ion cells can withstand, researchers ...
