Patcay.com – Lithium-ion battery has been developed by scientists from the University of California, Berkeley, USA, that can last up to 100 years. This battery uses a new material that can prevent degradation.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most commonly used battery type today. They are used in various electronic devices, such as cellphones, laptops, and electric cars. However, lithium-ion batteries have a disadvantage, which is that they are prone to degradation over time. This causes the battery capacity to decrease and eventually become unusable.
Scientists from UC Berkeley have overcome this weakness by using a new material, lithium-zinc phosphate (Li-Zn). This material has a more stable structure and is resistant to degradation.
In trials, these Li-Zn batteries can last up to 100 years at 80% capacity. This means it can be used for 100 years with enough power to fulfill daily needs.
This Li-Zn battery has the potential to transform the automotive and energy storage industries. They can be used to make electric cars that have longer range and are more durable. They can also be used to store solar and wind energy for longer periods of time.
This research is still in its early stages. Scientists still need to develop these Li-Zn batteries so that they can be mass-produced. However, this research shows that a long-lasting lithium-ion battery that can be used for years is possible.
