In 2019, Elon Musk announced that Tesla had a “1 million-mile battery pack” in the making. He said that it was going into production “next year,” which is now here. Tesla, while in a partnership with physicists from Canada’s Dalhousie University, filed a patent in December for new lithium-ion battery tech
Researchers at the University of Illinois are working on a polymer battery that inhibits the growth of dendrites. An important extra benefit is that it can be recycled easily and inexpensively
A bitter dispute between LG Chem and SK Innovation over lithium-ion battery technology threatens to delay the rollout of electric cars in the US and Europe.
It was just over a month ago that we reported on a Tesla accident in Austria that resulted in firefighters needing to use a special container to transport the remains of the vehicle and the battery at the scene of…
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory have designed and tested a new electrolyte composition that could greatly accelerate the adoption of the next generation of lithium-ion batteries.
(World Scientific) In a paper to be published in the forthcoming issue in NANO, a group of researchers led by Wei Zhang from the Yunnan Minzu University, China have developed a simple, low cost and eco-friendly method to synthesize SnO2 nanorods for lithium ion batteries.
(University of Bath) New research aims to improve the cost, performance and range of batteries used in electric vehicles, helping pave the way for zero emission transport.
Bird boasts that its dockless electric scooters allow customers to “cruise past traffic and cut back on CO2 emissions—one ride at a time.” Its rival Lime claims the vehicles “reduce dependence on personal automobiles for short-distance transportation and leave future…
