Cobalt-free electrodes achieved with nickel ions

Yokohama National University Many electric vehicles are powered by lithium-ion batteries that rely on cobalt — a scarce, expensive metal with high environmental and social...

A battery’s hopping ions remember where they’ve been

Seen in atomic detail, the seemingly smooth flow of ions through a battery’s electrolyte is surprisingly complicated. Solid-state batteries store and release charge by nudging...

Passenger Car CTP (Cell to Pack), CTC (Cell To Chassis) and CTB (Cell to Body) Integrated Battery Industry Review 2024

1. In 2023, CTP (Cell to Pack) technology was seen in nearly 50% of new energy vehicles sold. In 2021, there were only 13 vehicle...

Researchers have shed important new light on what the early signs of battery failure look like

Argonne researchers complete an in-depth examination of soft-shorts, a phenomenon that is an early step toward permanent failure in a battery DOE/Argonne National Laboratory An Argonne...

Sodium to Debut in Small Microcars First for Mobility Applications

Many people were surprised when HiNa revealed their lineup of sodium-ion battery cells, as well as a prototype of an electric car, in February...

Resting boosts performance of lithium metal batteries

Stanford University Next-generation electric vehicles could run on lithium metal batteries that go 500 to 700 miles on a single charge, twice the range of...

Self-extinguishing batteries could reduce the risk of deadly and costly battery fires

Apparao Rao, Clemson University and Bingan Lu, Hunan University In a newly published study, we describe our design for a self-extinguishing rechargeable battery. It replaces...

EV Battery Prices Fell by 4–7% in January, Decrease Expected to Slow Down in February, Says TrendForce

TrendForce’s latest research indicates that the global lithium battery market remained subdued in January, with cell makers still working through their inventories and production...

EU Critical Raw Materials Act: Ambitious Targets to Secure Supply

Demand for Li-ion batteries continues to grow in sectors such as electric vehicles, stationary energy storage, and consumer electronics. IDTechEx estimates that in 2023,...

Cobalt-free batteries: MIT chemists developed a battery cathode based on organic materials

Many electric vehicles are powered by batteries that contain cobalt — a metal that carries high financial, environmental, and social costs. MIT researchers have now...
