Researchers Develop Safer Solid Electrolyte Lithium-Ion Batteries That Conduct Ions 1000 Times Faster
Most lithium-ion batteries rely on liquid electrolytes to conduct ions between a negatively charged anode and a positively charge cathode - however liquid electrolytes run into safety problems due to
South Korean scientists just developed the world's first imprintable and bendable battery - and it could pave the way for flexible mobile devices in the near future. According to the researchers, the new
The race is on to develop a longer-lasting rechargeable battery in order to greatly extend the range of electric vehicles, and a team of researchers from Rice University may have found a clue. The
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
According to a recent McKinsey study, the price of automotive lithium-ion batteries is expected to drop by thousands of dollars by the end of the decade - a change which could substantially increase the
Lithium-ion batteries are widely considered to be the 'next big thing' in electric vehicle power systems, but their storage capacity is still a cause for concern. That could be about to change though as
The rumor mill is hot this week with news that BMW and Toyota are about to announce a partnership to research the next generation of lithium-ion batteries for electric cars. If this partnership comes to
Range anxiety is one of the biggest hurdles facing electric cars today. For electric vehicles to truly become mainstream, batteries will have to provide a longer range and become much cheaper.
Though no official announcement has been made, a source close to Toyota has stated that the company will manufacture a hybrid with a lithium-ion battery “in the very near future.” This will be
New York based Ioxus have developed a lithium ion ultracapacitor that could charge items in mere seconds.
In news that could affect everyone from laptop users to electric car drivers, Hitachi announced this week that it has figured out a way to double the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries -- the batteries
With all the news surrounding the Tesla Model S and the upcoming Model X, it's been easy to forget about Tesla's first model, the Roadster. While a new Roadster has not been announced, Tesla is reportedly
The office of California Governor Jerry Brown has revealed it is considering legislation to ease environmental compliance laws for Tesla Motors in an effort to woo the company to build its first
Last week Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the automaker will deliver 100,000 electric vehicles in 2015. The news sent Tesla's stock up five percent the morning after Musk released the statement.
It's happening! After much speculation, Panasonic Corporation and Tesla Motors have struck a formal agreement over the Japanese company's manufacture and supply of lithium-ion batteries for the electric
Porsche recently unveiled the updated 2015 Cayenne SUV, which will be the first plug-in hybrid SUV on the market when it arrives this fall. Tesla and BMW are also working on electrified SUVs, but Porsche
