Lithium-Air Batteries Get a Recharge
(Phys.org) -- Researchers in the United Kingdom have taken another step towards proving that so named lithium-air (Li-O2) batteries might one day become practical. Up to now the problem has been using the technology to build a battery that uses oxygen and that can survive many charge-discharge-recharge cycles. Now Zhangquan Peng, Stefan Freunberger, Yuhui Chen and Peter Bruce of Saint Andrews in Scotland, have developed a way to build a lithium-air battery, using a gold electrode that, as they describe in their paper published in the journal Science, survived a hundred cycles with just 5% loss of power.
