CSIRO – New Discovery – A simple ‘Sault Bath’ for electrodes creates Super Performance Batteries.
On the 14th June the CSIRO announce that their joint venture project with RMIT University and the QUT has cracked a code to supercharge the performance and lifespan of the current lithium battery technology in use for electric cars, mobile phones and all lithium battery powered equipment.
Team lead, Dr. Adam Best from the CSIRO indicated that by simply pre-treating the lithium battery metal electrodes with sault based compound developed by the team, creates increased battery charging efficiency, performance, range and even extends the batteries life.
The treatment process can easily be integrated into the current battery manufacturing production lines with low cost and huge benefits. Auto manufacturers as well as companies like Apple and Samsung now have the opportunity to capitalise on this Australian innovation to provide superior higher performing batteries in the cars and smart products.
eCarInsight is excited to report on this innovation and particularly that an Australian organisation can lead in the development of these technologies. It means longer EV range, faster charging times with high output for the new line of Plug-In Cars soon to be released.
We have shared this innovation with one of the world’s leading Plug-In Vehicle (PEV) producers in the hope that they will investigate partnering with the CSIRO to implement this brilliant breakthrough for upcoming Plug-In Vehicles.
