    Default This is HUGE!! UCI chemists create battery technology with off-the-charts charging capacity

    Although from 2016 it is still monumental!

    The study leader, UCI doctoral candidate Mya Le Thai, cycled the testing electrode up to 200,000 times over three months without detecting any loss of capacity or power and without fracturing any nanowires. The findings were published today in the American Chemical Society’s Energy Letters.

    This post typifies the problem.

    Breakthrough happens.
    There is an article.

    THEN NOTHING. Like you said 2106? Where is that now Three years later>?

    Ill tell you. It is with Steorn's Orbo.

    The time for getting excited about breakthroughs without product being able to be purchased right then and there has been put out to pasture with Sheldan Nidle and Steorn

    Generally, it seems, this type of breakthrough technology would be reserved for use by special military, space and other programmes. BUT in this instance she laid out the exact process used....and that means a citizen scientist could very likely reproduce her work.
    Here is research from 2011 that illustrates how current batteries can hold 10x their charge

    Now take a look at someone making his own self powering graphite power packs.....they are already in production and available for sale
    Nanotech enhanced Silicon Carbide core separator in Powercells feed an electronically controlled battery charger.

    It is a bit slow.......but they are modular!

    Same with graphene batteries. (www.grabat.es)
    I contacted them some months ago and was told they don't sell to end consumer but work for large companies...

    Go figure!

    I think the mix will be using a capacitor and a battery at the same time.

    Using both together is what will be come common soon, Tesla is probably already doing this (they'd have to for their new roadster to reach the performance specs that are touted).

    You can find a lot of items sold on "ebay" or the like... thing's that generally aren't easily available to average consumers.

    Bounced in to ask Target why do you think capacitors will be used in conjunction with batteries?

    94-year old Lithium-Ion battery inventor unveils new ultra-efficient glass battery

    The new battery uses a sodium- or lithium-coated glass electrolyte that has triple the storage capacity of a lithium ion battery. It also charges in minutes instead of hours and operates in both frigid and hot weather (from -20 to 60 degrees centigrade). Early tests suggest the battery is capable of at least 1,200 charge-discharge cycles, significantly more charging cycles than a comparable lithium-ion battery, and best of all, the glass-based electrolyte will not form the dendrites that plague lithium-ion battery technology. The dendrites accumulate as part of the standard charging and recharging cycle and eventually cause a short circuit that often results in a smoldering or burning battery.

    To save the cyclic break down of lithium ion transfer/oxidation build up... the weakness of those batteries is "slower" charge and output compared to ultra capacitors plus the more you have the reaction happen the more the battery breaks down (oxidizes).

    I think they will be used to store power from regenerative breaking and to provide initial burst (for the HIGH demand of acceleration from a stop) and transition to battery in a more "gentile slope" of work drain.

    This "dual" power source will extend the life of the lithium ion batteries (significantly) as it will take the most "destructive" part of the current charge/release system design.
