Scientists of the National University of Science and Technology “MISIS” (NUST MISIS), part of an international team of researchers, managed to increase the capacity and extend the service life of lithium-ion …

Li-Ion batteries are awesome but this kind of news is coming daily and is worthless

Honestly yeah. Getting experimental numbers in a lab does not a production ready battery make.


And if it does increase the effective capacity twofold, that still won’t mean that your phone will actually run twice as long, because we’ll rather just stop optimizing our software so much.

That will have other advantages, like more features, cheaper apps etc., but it won’t stand out as much.

Also, chances are doubling the capacity will double the explosion risk. All that energy isn’t coming from nothing, it’s stored as chemicals that really want to release that energy.

Also, chances are doubling the capacity will double the explosion risk.



yeah i didnt read the article, but i thought that it wouldve been a major breakthrough, and made someone 𝗔𝗟𝗢𝗧 of money

agreed. very clickbaity and annoying.


still waiting for those graphene batteries


Agree with the previous comments on this repetitious story. The one step spray-pyrolysis does sound promising. Marrying this anode with the rest of the materials probably needs to be sorted out because I bet that anode is remarkably brittle, but I also assume the current porous carbon is as well. Just 5 more years :-)
