Glass Battery Breakthrough? If Proven, This Is A Game-Changer

A 94-year-old professor who pioneered the world-standard lithium ion battery technology has now announced a new glass battery which, he and his team claim, has triple the storage capacity of a lithium ion battery.

John B. Goodenough, an emeritus professor at the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas, Austin and his team claim the new battery also charges in minutes instead of hours and operates in both frigid and hot weather (from -20 to 60 degrees centigrade).

Early tests suggest the battery is capable of at least 1,200 charge-discharge cycles, significantly more charging cycles than a comparable lithium-ion battery, and best of all, the glass-based electrolyte will not form the dendrites that plague lithium-ion battery technology. The dendrites accumulate as part of the standard charging and recharging cycle and eventually cause a short circuit that often results in a smouldering or burning battery.
