New Material Pushes Sodium-Ion Batteries to Phase out Costly Lithium

New Material Pushes Sodium-Ion Batteries to Phase out Costly Lithium

With lithium prices over five times higher than they were a year ago, researchers have developed a material for sodium-ion batteries, which offer an alternative to the increasingly expensive lithium-ion tech. The new material is a powder of sodium-vanadium phosphate fluoride with a particular crystal structure. Used in the battery cathode, it provides record-high energy storage capacity, eliminating one of the bottlenecks of the emerging sodium-ion technology.

A Water Activated Disposable Paper Battery

A Water Activated Disposable Paper Battery

A team of researchers have developed a water-activated disposable paper battery. The researchers suggest that it could be used to power a wide range of low-power, single-use disposable electronics - such as smart labels for tracking objects, environmental sensors and medical diagnostic devices - and minimize their environmental impact.

Longer Lasting Sodium-Ion Batteries on the Horizon

Longer Lasting Sodium-Ion Batteries on the Horizon

Cheap and abundant, sodium is a prime promising candidate for new battery technology. But limited performance of sodium-ion batteries has hindered their large-scale applications. Now, a research team has developed a sodium-ion battery with greatly extended longevity in laboratory tests. An ingenious shift in the ingredients that make up the liquid core of the battery prevents the performance issues that have bedeviled sodium-based batteries.
