Scientists Made A Lithium-Ion Battery That Definitely, Positively, Absolutely Won't Explode

For the first time, researchers say they have made a lithium-ion battery that uses a water-salt solution as its electrolyte and can reach the voltage needed to power household electronics and it doesn't come with the fire and the explosions and the arrgghh that is a risk with "some commercially available non-aqueous lithium-ion batteries". The key to this battery? The special coating.
