Researchers in #Canada develop million-mile #Lithium-ion battery
A group of scientists led by Jeff Dahn, a professor at Canada’s Dalhousie University and a research partner with Tesla, published a paper in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society where they present the concept of a new battery able to power an electric vehicle for over one million miles.
The battery, thus, could make Tesla’s robot taxis and long-haul electric trucks viable. It is also expected to last at least two decades in grid energy storage.
The power cell uses a nickel-rich alloy for its cathode. The alloy contains 50% nickel, 20% cobalt, and 30% manganese and is considered to be very stable.
