At age 100
The splendidly named inventor of the lithium-ion battery, John B. Goodenough has died. He was 100.
Cells with glue-like binders
Boffins at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have discovered a new material that allows old lithium-ion cells to be recycled with just water. And it could soon make battery recycling cheaper and safer.
Supercapacitor battery could be the next big thing
Boffins working at University of Central Florida have emerged from their over filled baths after creating a new process for creating a supercapacitor battery.
Switches itself off if it gets too hot
Researchers have emerged from their smoke filled labs having designed a lithium-ion battery which can shut itself down if it gets too hot or might make a Dell off a bang (pictured).
