Japan Has Developed A Fire-proof And Explosion-proof Lithium Ion Battery

- Apr 26, 2018-

Japanese researchers have developed a more secure electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries, which can't burn or explode even when exposed to high temperatures.

lithium-ion batteries are widely used in electric vehicles or mobile phones, but the traditional lithium-ion batteries are highly flammable organic electrolyte, which is a serious safety hazard.

Researchers from the university of Tokyo and other institutions in the new issue of the journal nature energy post, according to their research and development is a kind of contains a high concentration of flame retardant trimethyl phosphate electrolyte.This electrolyte is not easy to burn, and can achieve high stable charge and discharge more than 1000 times or more than a year, the service life is comparable to even more than the traditional lithium-ion battery.

Research team, points out that this can make the working voltage of lithium ion battery electrolyte increased from the current 3.7 v to 4.6 v, will apply to the electric car battery storage requirements such as high energy density, high security, the team will propulsion research and related enterprises.
