Batteries of the new type will allow electric vehicles to travel 800 km without recharging

Batteries of the new type will allow electric vehicles to travel 800 k

The lack of significant progress in electric charge storage technologies is beginning to constrain the development of entire industries. For example, modern electric cars are forced to either limit themselves to modest mileage without recharging, or become expensive toys for selected "technophiles". The desire of smartphone manufacturers to make their devices thinner and lighter conflicts with the layout features of lithium-ion batteries: their capacity is difficult to increase without sacrificing the thickness of the body and weight of the smartphone. The functionality of mobile devices is expanding, there are new consumers of electricity, but progress in battery life can not be achieved.

According to the resource EE Times Asia, at the technological summit of Imec, the company's employees shared various promising developments, among which was a project for the use of new types of materials to make the cell more compact when creating batteries with solid-state electrolyte. Or, if you keep the same size, you can increase the battery capacity. According to forecasts, modern lithium-ion batteries by 2025 will reach the limit of specific capacity of 800 W·h per liter of volume. If the Imec proposals can be implemented, by 2030 the specific capacity of the batteries will be raised to 1200 W·h/l. electric Vehicles will be able to pass without recharging up to 800 km, and smartphones will be able to work away from the outlet for several days.
