Vehicles that are charged only once have difficulty in traveling even 200 km. Tesla company dominates the electric car industry. However, even he has not yet reached a sufficient level in terms of battery. Even if the driving distance increases, the problem cannot be solved unfortunately. Now, scientists have done a new research and have obtained interesting results.
Ongoing work by Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences began to bring good results. Scientists working on the problem of batteries not self-healing have made some discoveries.
Lithium-ion batteries used under normal conditions will be replaced by lithium metal batteries. Thus, batteries that can be charged and used at least 10 thousand times will be produced. As a result of the ongoing multi-layered original research, batteries that cover very long distances will be obtained.
The statements made by Xin Li, an associate professor at SEAS, on the other hand, eroded hopes a little. He said that these batteries can take the performance to a very high point with their basic thermodynamics. However, the main problem is to turn these batteries into commercial batteries. Lithium metal batteries could revolutionize electric vehicles if developed commercially. Electric vehicles desperately need this study to overcome the battery problem.
