Scientists have discovered a solution that make aqueous batteries a possibility

August 22, 2016

Traditional lithium ion batteries are very energetic. The batteries are used commercially in everything from cell phones to laptops and many other portable devices because of the amount of energy they harness in such a small space. These conventional batteries can perform outside the stability of their liquid electrolytes with the help of a protective shield.

What the scientists are beginning to understand is that the salt that they use in high concentrations for the aqueous batteries give a new layer of lithium fluoride that will match the conventional lithium ion coating.
