Lithium-ion batteries have been very common applications, but in recent years, frequent exposure of mobile phone burns, bombings, or to enable researchers to find more secure high-performance battery solutions. The good news is that the US Navy Research Laboratory has proposed a new 3D sponge-like zinc electrode structure. Its greatest feature, is not easy to explode. Although the zinc-based battery in the repeated charging some problems, but it also has a safe and cheap features, it is suitable for consumer electronics and commercial products.
Three - dimensional Zinc Electrode Structure for High Performance Batteries
Researchers explained that a common problem with ordinary zinc-based batteries is the & ldquo; synapse & rdquo ;. Compared with the traditional zinc powder composite electrode, the US Navy developed this 3D sponge-like electrode has excellent electrochemical performance, can make the entire electrode current distribution more uniform.
Supports high power usage under complex loads
The new study opens the door to 3D solid-state batteries, and it can be used in disposable and rechargeable batteries, and the latter is a milestone in zinc-based battery technology.
Applicable to a variety of lye chemical reactions, including zinc - air, nickel - zinc, silver - zinc, and zinc - manganese dioxide.
The Navy Research Laboratory says the technology supports a variety of alkaline battery configurations, high power consumption at wide loads, and a monolithic electrode structure that allows it to be shaped into various shapes.
