Review of developments in lithium secondary battery technology

Lithium batteries power an increasing range of devices sub sea in defense, industrial and scientific applications. Future installations will require batteries with greater energy and power capacity, of lower weight for use in underwater vehicles, at lower cost and with less risk of catastrophic failure. With these goals in mind, developments in lithium-ion and lithium

Battery breakthrough puts superfast-charging

The ground-breaking study into polymer materials could see lithium-ion battery technology superseded. Just a year ago, the partnership announced that their novel polymer materials have dielectric properties 1,000 to 10,000 time greater than existing electrical conductors. Their breakthrough has now been applied to device-scale practical demonstrations. Small single-layer cells were charged to 1.5 volts for
