As more and more accidental overheating issues occured in electronic devices with poor- quality lithium batteries, there has sharply seen a growing need for safer lithium batteries. Manufacturers, sellers and consumers all concern about the safety in lithium battery products. A newer generation of safer lithium batteries is highly demanded.
A related paper in the safer lithium battery research published in June 17 edition of Nature Communications clearly points out how the addition of 2 chemicals to the electrolyte of lithium metal batteries can prevent the formation of dendrites. Let’s dig deep inside the lithium structure:
The needles of lithium that grow in the battery cell and puncture the barrier between the 2 battery halves eventually;
In that case, short circuit issues could take place due to their formation;
And the short circuits in the battery will result in overheating and combustion even possibly;
Based on the paper’s concepts, this very breakthrough could theoretically remove a major barrier to the future development of lithium-sulfur and lithium-air batteries. So we may probably assume that these promising new types of batteries will lead to a huge change in battery energy and battery size.
Consumers are naturally expecting safer lithium batteries built in the electronic devices they are using. .
With better quality lithium batteries, electronic products like smartphone replacement batteries, battery charger, smart speakers etc. will have better longevity and performance in working and re-charging.
