Flow battery lets electric cars travel 1,000 miles, recharges in minutes

A new battery technology could make electric vehicles go 500 to 1,000 miles on a single charge ─ five times longer than is possible now, researchers claim.

The technology, being developed by the Illinois Institute of Technology and the Argonne National Laboratory, will use a modified version of a flow battery. Rather than rely on solid electrodes to provide power, the new battery would run on liquid nanoelectrofuel electrodes.

It’s not exactly clear how the range improvements are created from a scientific point of view, but there are said to be a number of benefits. Lead researcher Carlo Segre explained that, unlike commonly used lithium-ion batteries, there’re no flammable items inside to catch fire.
