Carbon nanotubes to make Li-ion batteries 10 times more powerful

By / June 24, 2010

According to an MIT press release, researchers claim to have created electrodes from carbon nanotubes that can make lithium-ion batteries ten times more powerful than conventional models. Such batteries, they say, could one day be used for power-hungry applications, such as hybrid vehicles and renewable energy sources. Yang Shao-Horn and colleagues have created electrodes made…
