New HIU lithium-metal battery boasts 560 Wh/kg specific energy

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Technology Institute and the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) have developed a new lithium-metal battery that offers a specific energy of 560 Wh/kg with good stability.  The researchers used a low-cobalt, nickel-rich layered cathode (NCM88), which offers high energy density. With the commonly used organic electrolyte LP30, however, the stability is unacceptable…. Read more »
