The energy density of the latest battery is 9 time

  • Detail

On December 10, Beijing time, according to foreign media reports, the unified situation of lithium-ion batteries may be broken. The California Institute of technology, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Honda Motor Company jointly developed an extraordinary new battery, which has an energy density of 10 times that of lithium-ion battery, cheaper manufacturing cost and less impact on the environment

for the current automotive market, batteries are everywhere. From smart to electric vehicles, they provide power for many products with future marks. But the problem is that the demand and technical requirements of the battery for the plastic granulator are also constantly improving. After charging, it seems that it will never be enough, and the impact on the environment is also considerable

the cycle time is the same as that of ordinary injection molding. However, an all-star research team from Caltech, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Honda Motor recently said that they have developed a fluoride based battery, which can achieve 10 times the energy density of traditional lithium-ion batteries, And the manufacturing cost is lower

the research group introduced this new battery in a paper published in the journal Science on December 7

according to CNET, fluoride batteries have been available for some time, but this kind of battery can work normally only at an oven temperature of about 300 Chinese degrees (150 degrees Celsius). According to Caltech and Honda, the new fluoride battery can generate electricity at room temperature

Christopher Brooks, a researcher at Honda Research Institute and co-author of the paper, said in a draft that fluoride ion batteries provide a promising new battery chemical with an energy density ten times that of existing lithium batteries. Unlike lithium-ion batteries, this kind of battery will not pose a threat to safety due to overheating, and compared with the process of extracting lithium and cobalt, the raw materials of extracting fluoride batteries have a much smaller impact on the environment

in addition, unlike lithium-ion batteries that power iPhones and Tesla, fluoride battery researchers say that such batteries are unlikely to catch fire suddenly

it is also noteworthy that new battery technology is prone to hype. But like all new technologies, unexpected obstacles may be encountered in practical application - and even in the best case, it usually takes several years for new products to come to market
