WaterBattery For On-The-Go Energy Storage

WaterBattery For On-The-Go Energy Storage

The new water battery can only cycle in the range of 50-100

US Army researchers developed New ‘WaterBattery’ for ‘On-The-Go’ Energy Storage. 

The announcement was made on Science Direct. The researchers:

In summary, we successfully resolved the “cathodic challenge” of aqueous electrolytes by designing a unique inhomogeneous electrolyte additive approach to minimize competitive water reduction on graphite or Li-metal surfaces during the interphase formation.

Upon reductive decomposition during the first charging process, the highly fluorinated additive forms a protective interphase that enables the reversible cycling of both graphite and Li-metal anodes in aqueous electrolytes.
