Lithium-ion Batteries: Higher Operating Temperatures Possible

Prof. Ajayan Research Group, Rice University – Jun 13, 2016

Lithium-ion batteriesThe evolution of energy storage devices has enabled the widespread use of electronics in many applications requiring remote power sources.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion batteries) alone represent a 20 billion dollar global market and this number is expected to increase even more in the years to come.

However, they are only used in a very narrow temperature range if compared to the entire spectrum of industrial processes and demands. The biggest roadblock has been the incapability of Li-ion batteries to withstand high temperatures.

Researchers from Rice University studied the reasons that prevent higher operating temperature and in this article, they are offering solutions to overcome this roadblock.
