A research team has developed a new anode technology that could boost the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries charge by as much as 30 percent. The Soft chemistry is the method used commonly called synthesis method. This method creates a titanium oxide that is significantly more efficient than the lithium titanate it would replace. Batteries could generate more power for each gram than they generate nowadays.
The technique can run at a relatively low temperature, making it very easy to implement, and can also reduce the current high cost of the batteries as the material Titanium oxide does not require costly lithium to make. Switching to this new development does not affect in any way the battery’s ability to maintain capacity over repeated charges. It is still not said how soon we can expect the new developments to find their ways into our every day products, though the development is relatively conventional and might become practical soon and can be used in more battery research studies.
