Electrolytes Made With Rubber? US Scientists May Be On Their Way to Developing Safer and Longer-Lasting Lithium Batteries

published: 2022-02-09 9:30 | editor | category: News
Rubber is an insulator, and is essentially not an ideal electrolyte material for lithium-ion batteries, though Georgia Institute of Technology has managed to develop a highly conductive rubber material, and the particular flexible electrolyte makes it possible in creating EV batteries that are safer and longer in driving range. ...  more

Scientists Fabricate Safer, More Durable Li-ion Batteries by Turning Rubber into Electrolyte

published: 2022-02-02 9:30 | editor | category: News
It is generally understood that rubber is an insulator and, as a result, generally not an ideal material for electrolytes used in li-ion batteries. However, a research team from Georgia Tech has obliterated such a general perception of rubber by coming up with a highly conductive rubber. By leveraging this flexible electrolyte, the team hopes to create a safer EV battery that delivers longer driving ranges. ...  more

“Nearly Perfect” Design Breakthrough Made in Lithium-sulfur Battery Separators

published: 2022-01-08 9:30 | editor | category: News
Although it has only been heard not seem, scientists continue to note and anticipate the development of lithium-sulfur batteries because their theoretical storage capacity is more than 5 times that of lithium-ion batteries. Now the University of Michigan has developed a new lithium-sulfur battery separation film and believes this design to be "almost perfect" with the number of charges and discharges exceeding a thousand while fast charging. ...  more

Just Bury Directly in Soil to Recycle, Scientists Develop Paper Batteries 90% Cheaper than Lithium Batteries

published: 2022-01-04 9:30 | editor | category: News
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has developed a biodegradable zinc battery as thin as paper with the potential to provide new battery options for flexible and wearable electronic devices in the future. Recycling is also easy because when the battery runs out, just bury it in soil and let it decompose on its own. ...  more
