3D-printed lithium-ion batteries

LED bangle, including a lithium-ion battery, was made entirely by 3D printing

Electric vehicles and most electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptop computers, are powered by lithium-ion batteries. Until now, manufacturers have had to design their devices around the size and shape of commercially available batteries. But researchers have developed a new method to 3-D print lithium-ion batteries in virtually

Step towards creating a rechargeable lithium-oxygen battery

lithium-oxygen battery

Chemists have reported on an important breakthrough on the path towards creating a rechargeable lithium-oxygen battery. This is a challenging issue with energy technology.Researchers from the University of Waterloo are edging closer to creating a working battery that has near 100 per cent coulombic efficiency. In a new study, the

New organic battery can operate for decades


Scientists have experimented with a new organic molecule that has an ability to ‘renew’ and this can be the basis of a new type of organic flow battery which has the potential to last for several decades.The search for long-lasting batteries is an increasing imperative for those engaged in the
