State-of-the-art lithium ion batteries are powering a revolution in clean transport and high-end consumer electronics, but there is still plenty of scope for improving charging time.
Many electric and hybrid cars use lithium-ion batteries, which are known to be exceptionally safe, but occasionally, an impact may disrupt the battery’s function, creating an electrical short.
Lithium-ion batteries have become a ubiquitous part of the digital revolution, but not without a serious setback.
Silicon – the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust – shows great promise in Li-ion batteries, according to new research from the University of Eastern Finland.
Lithium-ion batteries have become an indispensable power source for our proliferating gadgets. They have also, on occasion, been known to catch fire.
As manufacturers — and consumers — push for more electric vehicles (EVs), lithium production may have a hard time keeping up with increasing demand.
