Lithium-ion Batteries

New Development to Make Lithium-ion Batteries Safer to Use

Demand for the cheaper, safe and stable batteries is growing. Lithium-ion batteries are the most suitable for smartphones, laptops, and tablets. However, the batteries have drawbacks such as thermal runaway in which they can catch fire due to too much heat. Thus, the researchers are exploring better alternatives for fixing this problem and its associated volatility. The researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas discovered that the problem is

Lithium-sulfur Batteries to Replace Lithium-ion Batteries

Common lithium-ion batteries that are used in electric cars could be substituted with lithium-sulfur batteries as they come cheaper, contains double the energy in similar mass and weigh much lesser. Lithium-sulfur batteries, however, become unstable in due course of time with electrodes deteriorating in over a period of time thereby limiting its adoption worldwide. New Polymer Binder to Improve the Functioning of Lithium-sulfur Batteries Led by the scientists of the
