Power/Performance Bits: Jan. 27

Improving batteries By digging into the complex science behind the formation of dendrites that cause lithium-ion batteries to fail, research by Purdue University engineers could bring safer, longer-lasting batteries capable of being charged within minutes instead of hours. According to the researchers, dendrites form on anode electrodes and may continue to grow until causing an internal sho... » read more
