Researchers are still searching for the Holy Grail in battery technology that will ultimately hold a charge for much longer than what's currently available and be affordable to the masses. One that has promise is a new all-solid lithium-sulfur battery developed by scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The research team, led by Chengdu Liang, claims the lithium-sulfur battery has around four times the energy density of conventional lithium-ion technologies found in today's devices, and it's pretty cheap to boot. "Our approach is a complete change from the current battery concept of two electrodes joined by a liquid electrolyte, which has been used over... Read more...
