Gallery: Gold-Infused Lithium-Ion Batteries Could Increase EV Battery R...

 

Scientists from the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland recently made a breakthrough in the production of EV lithium-ion batteries by adding gold to the mix. The team previously discovered that an air-breathing lithium-ion battery could potentially store up to 10x times the energy that standard lithium-ion batteries do, but they hadn’t figured out what materials would make the right combination. They now believe that gold could be the key, as it can stand up to the rigors of repeated charging and discharging.
