Aluminum-ion battery technology advances

A new high-performance 'aluminum-ion' battery could be the technical breakthrough needed to boost the renewable energy takeover. It's safe, uses abundant low-cost materials, recharges in one minute and withstands many thousands of recharge cycles.
If this new battery lives up to expectations, it could propel a whole new chapter in the renewable takeover of the world's energy supply.
Stanford University scientists have invented the first high-performance aluminum battery that's fast-charging, long-lasting, inexpensive - and safe.
