The evolution of the battery

To the outside observing, battery technology seems to develop in ebbs and flows. It has taken us a long time to push beyond the traditional heavy acid batteries that we know - such as car batteries or the humble AA battery. In 2019, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to the developers of the lithium-ion battery. Although the research was originally published in the 1970s, it wasn’t until recently that this revolutionary battery technology was brought to the mainstream market.

Today, lithium-ion batteries are ubiquitous - they are used to power our smartphones, laptops and even our electric cars use lithium-ion batteries. They hold a greater charge, last longer and are incredibly lightweight compared to the batteries that were once popular. Even though lithium-ion batteries are incredibly widespread today, scientists are still struggling to unlock their true potential and much remains unknown about them due to their complicated.
