LiCAP Technologies Developing a Game-Changing Electrode Material

LiCAP Technologies Developing a Game-Changing Electrode Material

A Rancho Cordova-based innovator is poised to make a big contribution to lowering lithium ion battery costs and improving their performance.  LiCAP Technologies is working on an “activated dry electrode” that is significantly better than the wet slurries now used. ...
Fearless Predictions 2022

Fearless Predictions 2022

We have done pretty good on our predictions in the past, so this year we changed it up. We have predictions on global changes and local developments. Let us know what you think.  Oil prices will fall below $60 per barrel.  The current price is $78 per barrel.  After...
Another Innovation to Boost Battery Life and Capacity

Another Innovation to Boost Battery Life and Capacity

Scientists at Stanford are on the trail of giving degraded lithium-ion batteries a wake-up call to restore them to near-original performance.  Inactive clumps of lithium build up over a battery’s lifetime until they must be replaced to keep EV range intact. ...
Desten Takes Another Step Toward Fast Charging

Desten Takes Another Step Toward Fast Charging

We have written several times about the opportunities and challenges of ultrafast charging systems.  Here is an article on a recent development.   Hong Kong-based company Desten is promoting its 900 kW charging system and the remarkable battery that goes with it,...
Some Big Advances in Lithium Ion Battery Recycling

Some Big Advances in Lithium Ion Battery Recycling

Recycling batteries in EVs and consumer electronics is a “must” if these technologies are going to be sustainable.  So far it has been neither easy nor inexpensive to do this, so batteries largely have just been accumulating.  The big wave of spent batteries which may...
