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.
A new battery technology called STAIR (St Andrews Air) promises to be lighter than your typical lithium ion battery while holding 5-10x the power. The battery charges and recharges like normal, but during discharge, atmospheric oxyg... Read Post
