Next Big Futures has published an article detailing a new battery that promises to deliver an electric vehicle’s power to the grid in a much cheaper, more efficient and less dangerous way than conventional battery technology.
The breakthrough battery is based on a novel design and has the potential to revolutionise the industry in the decades to come.
In this article, we discuss how the battery works and the new battery’s potential for delivering more power to our electric vehicles than ever before.
The battery’s name is Li-Ion battery.
It has the capacity to store as much energy as one-third of a kilowatt-hour (kWh).
The new battery, known as Li-ion, has the same capacity as batteries found in the new Nissan Leaf, Nissan Leaf XL, Renault Clio, Audi Q7, Toyota Prius, Ford Focus Electric, Honda Fit and Tesla Model S. Its energy density, which measures how much electricity is stored in a unit of volume, is nearly twice that of the batteries found on the new car.
In addition, the battery can store energy in a manner that has never been achieved in a battery before.
“We have made the breakthrough in lithium-ion battery technology,” says co-founder and CEO of Next Big, Michael Risso.
“The capacity of Li-ION battery technology is very, very high and is one of the reasons why the cost of the battery has fallen from over $10,000 per kilowatthour (kW) to under $3,000.”
The new battery has the capability to store an energy density of over 4.4 times that of conventional batteries, meaning the energy stored is nearly a third of the energy of lithium-Ions.
“It is important to note that the battery we have demonstrated is in no way an exclusive solution for batteries in the future.
It is a unique technology that can deliver power to all electric vehicles and other electric vehicles in the next few years.”
What makes Li-ion battery technology unique is that it has the ability to store energy at much lower density than the battery that is already in use on the market.
In fact, it has a higher energy density than any lithium-based battery we’ve ever produced.
“In the past, most lithium-metal batteries have used a high-pressure, high-temperature electrolyte, or high-energy electrolyte.
The higher the pressure, the higher the temperature, the lower the energy density.
These are all characteristics that we think will be important to the future of energy storage technology.”
However, the low-temperature electrolyte we have used is much more stable, and it has much less reaction time compared to traditional batteries.
This makes it a much more versatile battery, and one that can be used for a wide range of applications.””
The company has been working on the battery technology for about two years, and is now looking to raise capital to commercialise the technology. “
At the moment, the technology is being developed in partnership with Panasonic and other partners.”
The company has been working on the battery technology for about two years, and is now looking to raise capital to commercialise the technology.
“As a start-up company, we are in the early stages of development, and we hope to have our product commercially available by the end of 2019,” says Rissov.
“If we are able to raise sufficient funding, we will be able to start manufacturing the product commercially.”
The battery technology was first demonstrated in 2016.
In 2018, the company successfully demonstrated a fully self-contained lithium-ionic battery using the same technology.
Since then, the team has developed a number of other lithium-i batteries, which are based on the same design and can store an astounding 6.5 kW of energy.
The technology was then validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which found it was 100% efficient and capable of achieving a power density of more than 16 kW/kWh.
Next Big plans to introduce the new technology to electric vehicles starting in 2021.
The new Li-ionic batteries are designed to be smaller than lithium-polymer batteries, in order to enable the battery to be transported with the vehicle.
The batteries are also made of a material called lithium cadmium, which has a high electrochemical potential.
“Lithium-ion batteries have an electrochemical reaction rate of more then 1 million per second,” says Li-ivs co-inventor and founder of Next B, Alex Vukulov.
“Our technology is more than double that of a typical lithium-air battery.
So, the electrochemical reactions can be accelerated to 1 million times faster.”
The new batteries are powered by lithium ions that are deposited in a graphite oxide electrolyte (see picture above).
These electrodes can be heated up to around 10,000 degrees Celsius (18,000° Fahrenheit) and cooled down to 0 degrees Celsius (-30° Fahrenheit).
The battery can be charged to maximum capacity using a standard
