High-voltage saltwater battery fails to fire

Back in 2015, a team of scientists made a battery breakthrough by using salty water as an electrolyte to offer a potentially safer and greener alternative to commercial lithium-ion batteries, but its voltage left something to be desired. The same team has now powered up its design to a point where it could be used in household appliances, without the risk of fire and explosion that can accompany conventional alternatives.
