When it comes to batteries, everyone is always looking for the next breakthrough in durability and sustainability . Researchers are always working on batteries that can charge more and last longer. Now a team at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, may have come up with a battery that can do just that, according to New Scientist . Five days of charge The battery is so impressive that a smartphone version of it would keep your phone running for five whole days. But why is this particular battery so special, you may ask? It is a lithium-sulphur battery. If it sounds familiar, it’s because many people have been trying to get lithium-sulphur batteries right due to their great potential. Unfortunately, "the capacity of the sulphur electrode is so large that it breaks apart over cycles of charging and discharging, and the energy advantage rapidly disappears," explained to New Scientist Mahdokht Shaibani, a researcher in this new team. To deal with this issue, the researchers tried an innovative approach and created a battery where the sulphur particles have more space to expand and contract. The conventional approach to lithium-sulphur batteries is to have elements added that bind the particles inside to […]
