Good News for Electric Cars: New Battery Tech Uses Peroxide to Boost Energy Density by 7X.
All electric vehicles currently in production use some form of lithium-ion chemistry in their battery packs.
Finding ways of improving that chemistry is therefore very important --- the aim being to make future electric car batteries cheaper, more stable and more energy-dense for longer range.
Researchers from the School of Engineering at the University of Tokyo have found a way to develop a lithium-based battery with seven times the energy density of current lithium-ion batteries, according to Nikkei Technology.
This has, at least theoretically, each of the major benefits you'd expect should it be introduced in production form --- lower cost, greater capacity and increased safety.
