Researchers develop new stretchable lithium-ion battery

New lithium-ion battery could put criticism to rest

Lithium-ion batteries have become a very popular renewable energy system, but have also been the subject of criticism over the past two years. These energy systems are widely used in electronic devices and, on a small scale, perform very well in these devices. Lithium-ion batteries are also widely used in electric vehicles, but have been criticized for their lack of efficiency and performance when compared to more traditional energy systems and even hydrogen fuel cells. Researchers from the Northwestern University and the University of Illinois in the U.S. have developed a new kind of lithium-ion battery that may put this criticism to rest.
Battery can expand to 300% its normal size

Researchers have developed a stretchable lithium-ion battery. The battery itself is quite small, but can expand up to 300% its actual size due to its elasticity. Researchers suggest that the battery would be ideal for flexible electronics, such as those that can be used in the human body. The stretchable lithium-ion battery can power these electronics effectively without having to be connected to an external power source. Researchers suggest that these batteries could eventually be scaled up for use in large-scale electronics, such as electric vehicles.
