University of Maryland (UMD) and US Army Research Lab (ARL) researchers are spearheading a public-private sector collaboration to further develop a lithium-ion battery that would be safer to operate and less costly to dispose of than those currently available on the market. The water-in-salt electrolyte idea was derived from the high concentration salt use in organic electrolytes for traditional lithium batteries.
