New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

Lithium-based batteries use more than 50 percent of all cobalt produced in the world. These batteries are in your cell phone, laptop and maybe even your car. But now, a research team has opened the door to using other metals in lithium-based batteries, and have built cathodes with 50 percent more lithium-storage capacity than conventional materials.

If we can't make better batteries, let's make them smarter

If we can't make better batteries, let's make them smarter

IDTechEx Technology Analyst Lorenzo Grande looks at the example of TankTwo. While the US Government throws millions of dollars into post-Li-ion development, and private companies struggle with smartphone recalls due to defective batteries, a bunch of innovative inventors are putting a good deal of lateral thinking into how to make the best of what is already on the market.
