judgecorp writes “Researchers at Stanford University have invented a battery material that could allow batteries to go through 400,000 charging cycles instead of the 400 or so which today’s Li-ion batteries can manage. Among the uses could be storing energy to even out the availability of renewable sources such as sun and wind.” Adds a story at ExtremeTech, “The only problem is, a high-voltage cathode (-) requires a very low-voltage anode (+) — and the Stanford researchers haven’t found the right one yet; and so they haven’t actually made a battery with this new discovery.”
