Lithium-air is the new secret of the future batteries for electric cars

When the first electric car arrived in our lives the first thing that we settled was in its discrete autonomy. First we took a small disappointment, because some barely exceed the hundred and a half of autonomy real. This range of utility already reached the first electric car of the history dating back to the early years of the TWENTIETH Century.

With the passage of time the technology that hides within your batteries have evolved leaps and bounds. However, its improvement has not plateaued in terms of efficiency, as the engineers of the car manufacturers do not cease to find new components to improve them. current batteries that mount electric cars are still expensive, have a weight that is relatively medium-high, and have a limited number of charge cycles.

however, it seems that these problems will pass on to a better life in a decade. Already told you about the batteries which will be able to incorporate in your interior graphene, but there are also other solutions. According to researchers from several centers the future is in the reaction that occurs between the lithium and the air, or better said, the gaseous oxygen stored within the battery.

The first prototypes speak of the robustness of these batteries as do not contain liquids, gases or chemical elements unstable that they can become inflamed. To not cause a fire depending on what circumstances are much more secure than the current one. In addition, through the association of the lithium and the air improves the energy density as could be achieved ratios of between 1700 Wh/kg and 2,400 Wh/kg

Another of the advantages that these new batteries compared to the current is that retained better and for a longer time the electrical charge that has in its interior. With all, may exceed 600 kilometers between recharges. In addition, the memory effect does not exist doing that will not be necessary to exhaust the existing charge for having to make a new recharge. To finish there is that mention that to their environmental impact is almost zero, as it does not contain in its interior pollutants.

Still will take a few years to know them and by the way are likely to emerge other technologies. However, while the path of research is open, the future of the car and the electric will be more alive than ever.
