High-Capacity Lithium-Ion Batteries On the Way

Abstract:
This new generation of lithium-ion batteries, shown at a meeting of the Electrochemical Society, earlier this week, uses a series of impressive new technologies, like nanotechnology, to create the composite materials for generating the electrodes on the cells inside the battery. So far, scientists have managed to measure twice the charge storage capacity in the new batteries, and they estimate that manufacturing costs will be lower than traditional lithium-ion batteries because of the materials (primarily manganese) required for the new nano-crystal electrodes.
