Canadian scientists have developed a new method of creating batteries for electric vehicles. Their The invention makes it possible to increase the range of the vehicle in 3 times!
How it works
Metallic Lithium Is one of the most promising materials in manufacture of batteries. But the he has one minus - lithium dendrites. These are the crystalline outgrowths of lithium, which grow into battery electrolyte, gradually destroying it. So they can disrupt the battery, causing it to ignite. Because of the dendrites, the lifetime of such accumulators is fleeting, like a summer vacation in 11th grade.
What did the Canadians come up with?
They came up with a system of phosphorus compounds and sulfur, which produces a thin protective layer when it interacts with metal lithium electrode. Canadians conducted massive tests and argue that the effectiveness of such a protective system is almost 100%.
When electric cars can travel far and long?
Will have to wait at least another few years. Topics Canadians will have to do a lot of tests, develop a commercial version of the battery, and then convince all manufacturers of electric cars that they have the best batteries. A to at that time market for sure will be and other developments. For example, Toshiba offers instead of increasing the capacity of the battery to use accelerated charging, which in 6 minutes can charge 320 km of track.
