Development Boosts Lithium-Ion Battery Power by 8-Fold

It’s good to see research done on everyday technology and in this case, it’s the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Researchers at Berkeley Lab have been able to increase the battery’s charging power by a factor of eight. Finally something that will actually hit the marketplace and we can use.

The new anodes are made from low-cost materials, compatible with standard lithium-battery manufacturing technologies.
