Another new type of battery; work in this field is very popular given the applicationin an electric vehicle. This type of battery is a flow type and promises to deliver a battery technology thatcan charge as quickly as fuelling up your car. There isa lot of work that still needs to be done, the final anode and cathode materials still have to be selected, but the lab results look good already.
Li-ion Flow Batteries Refill Quickly and Easily, Could Cut Cost of Li-ion Batteries in Half!
“A sample of ‘Cambridge crude’ — a black, gooey substance that can power a highly efficient new type of battery. A prototype of the semi-solid flow battery is seen behind the flask.”
