Most battery-powered devices, from smartphones and tablets to electric vehicles and energy storage systems, rely on lithium-ion battery technology. Because lithium-ion batteries are able to store a significant amount of energy in such a small package, charge quickly and last long, they became the battery of choice for new devices.
But new battery technologies are being researched and developed to rival lithium-ion batteries in terms of efficiency, cost and sustainability.
How Do They Work?
These batteries are similar to lithium-ion batteries, but instead use saltwater as an electrolyte.
