New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

Apr 20, 2018 United States
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.
