IBM speeds push for 500-mile EV battery

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. (Credit: IBM) 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.
