New Lithium-Ion Batteries Could Last 20 Years

A Japanese research and development company called Eamex has state that they have discovered a method to increase the typical average life of a high-capacity lithium-ion battery. This claimed new technology will allow the demanding batteries to withstand over 10,000 recharges over the timespan of about 20 years.

This impressively huge increase in performance is made possible by a variety of techniques. A different stabilization process of the battery’s electrodes, which in-turn puts less stress on the battery’s tin, is cited as one of the methods that allows for this extended lifespan. The result is a battery that lasts up to 10 times as long as most current batteries.

    Totally awesome!
    now there is no excuse for not buying an electric car since you can travel longer distances.

    Too bad they will be run out of business by current battery companies before it ever sees production, such ideas would never make money in the real world where things NEED to fail in order to sell more…
