BMW Will More Than Doubles Capacity Of Its U.S. Production Lithium Ion Battery Capacity

BMW plans to double its U.S. production capacity for lithium ion battery packs at its U.S. factory to support electric vehicle output at its largest global plant. The new, higher performing, fourth-generation batteries will be assembled on-site for the BMW X5 and BMW X3 plug-in hybrid electric variants. The 2020 BMW X5 xDrive45e Sports Activity […]

Apple Apologizes Over Old iPhone Slow Down – Drops Price of iPhone Battery Replacement

Apple today said it will significantly drop the cost of replacing iPhone batteries in order to appease customers upset about their device’s performance. “We’ve been hearing feedback about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you […]

MediaTek’s Pump Express 3.0 to Challenge Quick Charge

MediaTek recently announced Pump Express 3.0, advanced rapid charging technology for smartphone batteries. MediaTek claims Pump Express 3.0 can charge a battery from 0% to 70% in 20 minutes, or provide four hours of talk time after charging for five minutes. Pump Express 3.0 makes use of direct charge through USB Type-C, which bypasses the […]

Gold Wires and Electrolyte Gel Improve Battery Longevity

Researchers at the University of California at Irvine say they’ve found a way to increase the number of charge cycles a battery has from a few thousand to more than 200,000. Their discovery could lead to batteries that can be recharged repeatedly for years without losing capacity, which his something that happens with today’s lithium-ion […]

Tesla Without Fanfare Kills the Largest Powerwall Home Battery

Tesla has stopped selling the larger of its two Powerwall home batteries, citing a lack of interest from consumers. All mentions of the 10 kWh Powerwall have disappeared from Telsa’s website and press kit. While Tesla didn’t initially explain the move, a representative confirmed to Greentech Media that it has discontinued the product, as customers […]

Sakti3’s Tech Could Double the Life of Lithium Ion Batteries.

Sakti3, a Michigan-based battery company, claims to have created new technology that will double battery life compared to today’s lithium ion batteries. Sakti3’s approach is entirely different from standard batteries. First, the company uses a solid state material, rather than a liquid electrolyte. Second, it manufactures them using a process called thin-film deposition. The process […]

Apple Offering to Replace Faulty iPhone 5 Batteries

Apple has launched an iPhone 5 battery replacement program. According to Apple, a limited number of iPhone 5s sold between September 2012 and January 2013 may experience a sudden decrease in battery life, requiring frequent recharges. Customers who believe their device may be affected can verify their device’s eligibility through the serial number. Apple will […]

Stanford University Claims Lithium Battery Breakthrough

Scientists at Stanford University believe they have solved one of the major issues facing lithium battery technology. The researchers contend a pure lithium battery is best. “Of all the materials that one might use in an anode, lithium has the greatest potential. Some call it the Holy Grail,” said Stanford Professor Yi Cui. “It is […]

Berkeley Lab Improves Li/S Batteries – Doubles Capacity of Li-ion

A team of Berkeley Lab battery researchers led by Elton Cairns has invented an improved lithium/sulfur (Li/S) cell that, for the first time with the sulfur-based technology, offers both long cycle life and a high discharge rate in addition to the inherently low cost and light weight of Li/S batteries. Tests show that the Berkeley Lab Li/S […]
