New Nickel-Lithium Battery Has Ultra-High Energy Density

All Cars Electric

Researchers at Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have succeeded in making the world's first Ni-Li battery, a formulation that holds more than 3.5 times the energy of Li-ion batteries and doesn't run the risk of catching fire. By including a membrane made of the recently developed glass-ceramic
