New Batteries for Electric Cars Could Last Ten Times Longer

Researchers at Toyota and Tohuku University in northern Japan have announced progress in their efforts to extend the charge in the batteries of electric vehicles:

Existing lithium-ion batteries have a cathode that contains graphite and polycrystal lithium cobalt oxide with the graphite improving the performance of the cathode but also requiring space that could be theoretically used to store more lithium ions.

The researchers say it will take up to ten years to develop a cathode with no graphite and single crystals of lithium cobalt oxide but that the end result is a powerful battery for electric cars, which can store 10 times more electrical charge. As a result, electric cars could travel ten times farther than they can today.

Hi,



Thanks for writing such an interesting article. Its really good to know about the batteries in detail. Seriously do we realize how many things in your house that need batteries? Let’s count it, from the flashlight, cell phone, iPod, cameras, and many more. Knowing it should make us realize on how essential the presence of the batteries in our daily life. However, with that so many kinds of battery, which is generally different between one to another, sometimes we have some difficulties in finding the desired type.



Find the right batteries supplier is not hard if you check out batterystation.co.uk because this website provides the widest selection of batteries and you can choose the right battery based on the categories. You can get the procell batteries which available in several sizes and voltage. You also can find Duracell batteries that divided into duracell plus batteries and duracell ultra batteries. All of the batteries come with cheaper price because this website provides the discount batteries in bulk, wholesale, and retail quantities.



Thanks,

And where does all that environmentally friendly hydrogen come from? Like bioethanol, it currently takes more energy to produce hydrogen then hydrogen provides as a fuel.

Television existed before WW2, but it took quite a long time to develop it to general consumption. I think we are at the end of the gasoline era, I think the exponential growth in technology will bring it about sooner than ten years. Hydrogen or Electric, we will be seeing bluer skies.

The university, by the way, is Tohoku University (not Tohuku, as incorrectly posted in the original). It's one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Japan.
