Batteries take the lithium for charge boost • The Register

To do that, the researchers coated a lithium anode with a layer of hollow carbon nanospheres, to prevent the growth of the dendrites. via Batteries take the lithium for charge boost • The Register. As research is being done on incremental improvements in Lithium Ion batteries, some occasional discoveries are being made. In this instance,… Continue reading Batteries take the lithium for charge boost • The Register

Battery vendors push ultracapacitor wrappers to give Li-ions more bite • The Register

A pair of battery vendors are hoping that a new design which incorporates the use of an ultracapacitor material will help to improve and extend the life of lithium-ion battery packs. via Battery vendors push ultracapacitor wrappers to give Li-ions more bite • The Register.
