An air-breathing battery: the basic chemistry of a lithium air battery is to combine oxygen from the air with lithium ions to create lithium peroxide and the reverse reaction during charge and discharge.
Ten years from now, range anxiety for electric cars could be a thing of the past.
IBM today announced two partners for a project aimed at building a lithium air battery able to propel an electric car 500 miles.
The Economist Babbage column has a good write-up on the better prospects for lithium air batteries to eventually replace gasoline. The energy density is much higher but lithium air has longevity problems. IBM, Toyota and PolyPlus ar...
Researchers at Ohio State University (OSU) have created a dye-sensitized solar cell that stores its own power by "breathing" air to decompose and re-form lithium peroxide. Its creators believe the device, which effectively combines ...
IBM signs on partners for its Battery 500 Project to design an "air-breathing" lithium air battery that would bring a leap in energy density. Originally posted at News - Cutting Edge
Researchers have taken a significant step toward the development of a battery that could outperform the lithium-ion technology used in electric cars such as the Chevy Volt. They have shown they can replace the lithium ions, each of ...
