New Solid State Battery Tech Offers 2x the Energy with No Anode
"Solid electrolytes are more compact than liquid or gel electrolytes. This means that all-solid-state batteries can produce more energy than conventional batteries for the same amount of weight or space. In addition, all-solid-state lithium batteries are much safer than their conventional counterparts, which use organic liquid electrolytes that are typically flammable." - IEEE Spectrum, article dated March 29, 2023; by Charles Choi
