Lithium metal battery to offer double the power
Published: Monday, 22 August 2016
The new development in battery technology replaces graphite anode material with a thin lithium metal foil, reportedly doubling the energy capacity against existing lithium batteries while allowing for smaller size and lower weight.
A new type of rechargeable lithium metal battery that
increases up to two-fold the energy capacity against existing
lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries will be commercialised by
US-based Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s
(MIT) spinout, SolidEnergy Systems.
The group has developed a battery technology that applies a
lithium metal foil in place...
