As design objects, batteries couldn't be more boring. They are wholly functional, featuring unimaginative square edges and wrapped completely in monotones. Batteries are designed to end up hiding inside
Battery developer AES Southland just announced that it will deliver the world's largest lithium ion battery to Southern California Edison. The massive 400MW battery can provide 100MW of power for a total
A team from the Stanford School of Engineering has made a breakthrough in lithium-ion battery design that is expected to result in more stable batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and significantly
Last week Tesla announced plans to build a new large scale lithium-ion battery "gigafactory" within the next three years, and the automaker just revealed that it will require a massive initial investment
Tesla doesn't have enough lithium-ion batteries to keep pace with their booming electric vehicle sales. Although the car maker sold 5,500 Model S sedans in the third quarter, sales might have been stunted
Tesla and Panasonic just announced a new agreement that will allow Panasonic to expand its supply of automotive-grade lithium-ion battery cells to the EV manufacturer. The new agreement expands on the
If you can make a battery out of a piece of citrus, why not a crustacean? Scientists at Stanford University are taking a look at the nanostructure of crab shells to create better lithium-ion batteries.
As technology advances, gadgets and gizmos are becoming smaller and smaller. From medical devices to bee-sized robots, developments in engineering have made for incredibly tiny electronics. To accommodate
From cell phones to electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are the power pack of choice. They are capable of keeping large amounts of energy in a small space with relatively little weight, making them
Embedded electronic implants have long been confined to the realm of science fiction, but the development of a new stretchable battery could soon make them a reality. A pair of scientists have developed

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 the first
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

The Tesla Model X electric SUV is finally going to arrive this fall, but it may not be too long until other automakers release their own fully electric SUVs. Audi has already announced plans to introduce
It’s hard to believe that the current Toyota Prius has been on the market for almost seven years, but an all-new Prius is just around the corner. Toyota has confirmed that the next-generation Toyota
An Israeli startup is setting its sights on creating a battery for electric cars that charges in just five minutes. If they meet their goal, the battery would be able to power the car for hundreds of
Even with a driving range of 400 miles, there will be a time when you'll have to plug in the Tesla Roadster, but could there be a new electric sports car on the market soon that will never need to be
What if you could power your iPhone from thin air? Making wires redundant was said to be one of Nikola Tesla's biggest dreams, a dream University of Washington researchers want to fulfill with PoWiFi.
Anyone that has ever tried to park a car in a crowded city like San Francisco or New York City knows how much of a headache it can be with the packed streets and overpriced parking garages. Well a company
