Scientists at DOE Argonne have been attempting to resolve lithium-metal electrode problems since October 2008. Yet they are still only 8% along the road
The Smithsonian Institute – AKA ‘the nation’s attic’ – stores 154 million items in 19 museums. Only a few items ever go on public display.
There has been a fair amount of news lately regarding a possible commercial breakthrough for renewables. But the pace is slow
To make a simple electric train not as complicated as the picture, and have endless fun with friends you need three simple things.
An electric motor stripped to its essentials is a device a magnetic field causes to rotate. All the other bits are purely mechanical.
Nothing really lasts forever, does it? There comes a time when our electric shaver lets us down because it is not holding charge. The good news
In a previous post we mentioned that early airships had motors powered by electricity stored in accumulators.
We think of disruption to electric cars, not batteries in this instance. Electric planes will need their energy on board.
Lithium-titanate batteries have quite a pedigree from the past. Or should we say a reputation. The Titans of mythologogy possessed unbelievable strength capable of lifting the earth to the sky.
Wireless power transmission is actually commoner than we thought until we saw a video of a drone that flies without a battery. The technology involves transmission from an electrical source to an electrical load without using a conductor made with human hands, or a robot for that matter.
