New Battery Technologies That Will Change the Future
If you're like us, you love to learn about the latest developments in the world of technology. Whether it's a new smartphone or an energy storage device, we want to know everything about it. In this article, we'll talk about some of the most exciting battery technologies that researchers are working on right now.
Batteries are a huge part of our everyday lives. From the batteries in your car to the batteries in your mobile devices, they power everything from small electronics to large-scale heavy machinery. One of the biggest issues with batteries is that they have a limited lifespan. The more you use them, the less effective they become and eventually they will stop working altogether. However, researchers continue to work on improving battery technology in order to make it better for our everyday lives. We need batteries that store more power, last longer, and are safer to use. Fortunately, new battery technologies are coming our way. Let’s take a look at a few!
Lithium-air batteries are rechargeable, like lithium-ion batteries, but they're also more energy dense than lithium-ion cells. Lithium-air batteries use anodes comprised of pure lithium and oxygen instead of graphite or cobalt oxide cathodes that are used in standard LiBs.
A Lithium-air battery is only one-fifth as heavy as a Lithium-ion battery and provides vehicle driving ranges of up to 800km. Lithium-air batteries have a much longer life cycle than their lithium-ion counterparts, and can be recharged hundreds of times.
Lithium-air batteries are much better for electric cars than Li-Ion batteries because they breathe in air from the atmosphere to use as an active material in the battery, which greatly decreases its weight. Li-Air batteries also store nearly 700% as much energy as traditional Li-Ion batteries.
The nanobattery is one of the most exciting battery technologies on the horizon. This new type of battery uses solid materials rather than liquid electrolytes to conduct electricity, making it safer than many other types of batteries.
Manufacturers use excess radioactive graphite to form a stratum that produces electricity. The application of nanotechnology in battery production helps to increase available energy and reduce full charge time. More current flows easily between the electrodes and the chemicals inside the battery thanks to the Nanoparticle coating on the battery's surface.
Nanotechnology could hold the key to making electric vehicles more widely usable by increasing battery performance. Scientists have used nanoparticles and nanocomposite materials to enhance the performance of lithium batteries and other, more novel battery technologies.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most common type of battery, but have some major drawbacks. One problem is their limited energy density, which limits how long they can hold a charge. Another problem is that they don't work well as an extreme heat source—they can get overheated and catch fire.
There are a lot of promising alternatives to lithium-ion batteries on the horizon. One promising option is silicon-carbon batteries. Silicon has a theoretical energy capacity 10 times higher than that of graphite, meaning it can significantly increase an EV’s range. It can also absorb lithium-ions much quicker during charging—speeding up the process.
Scientists have replaced silicon materials with silicon nanoparticles to increase the battery's durability. They also use a structure in which nano silicon is sandwiched between nano carbon, which increases the battery's capacity by ten times, while also maintaining the bonds between the silicon nanoparticles even after 500 charging and discharging cycles.
The lithium-sulfur battery is an example of a non-aqueous electrolyte which can dissolve inorganic salts and carry an electric current. It consists of a lithium metal anode and a sulfur cathode, both embedded in an ionic liquid electrolyte.
The most promising application for lithium-sulfur batteries so far is in electric vehicles (EVs), where they offer high power density, fast charging and long cycle life compared to existing technologies such as lithium ion. Using sulfur in battery production helps optimize costs and protect the environment. The drawback of this battery is that the lithium electrode degrades quickly after extended usage. This reduces the battery's life and increases the risk of fire and explosion.
Lithium-sulfur batteries can potentially last for 1,000 charge cycles, which is the equivalent of around 10 years of electric vehicle usage. Lithium-sulfur batteries have considerable advantages over other lithium-ion batteries.
Solid-state batteries are a type of rechargeable battery that use solid electrolytes instead of liquid or gel electrolytes. They have the potential to be safer and more efficient than traditional lithium-ion batteries, but they have some hurdles to overcome before they can become commonplace in consumer electronics.
The current state of solid-state batteries is still very much in its infancy, so it's hard to predict exactly how long it will take for this next generation of batteries to reach prime time. On March 3, 2021, VinFast and ProLogium Technology Company (Taiwan) inked a strategic cooperation agreement to make solid-state batteries in Vietnam. This is regarded as an important turning point in the global automotive industry and a foundation for developing Vietnamese-branded smart EVs to go global in the future.
Solid state batteries can store more energy with less materials, which means that they can decrease the carbon footprint of an electric car by 24%. And if sustainably sourced technology and materials are used, then that could reduce the carbon footprint of EV batteries by up to 39%.
In order to meet consumer demands and keep up with global progress, many auto manufacturers are placing a high priority on these five future battery technologies. These innovations not only give car batteries a longer lifespan but also give customers a better driving experience. We hope you’ve enjoyed learning about these new battery technologies! We’re excited to see how they will change the world as we know it.
