Eamex, a Japanese company, claims that they figured out a way to significantly increase the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries used for hybrids or electrical vehicles. They say the new battery can be recharged for about 10.000 times with a lifespan of 20 years and this is much better than what we had until now.

Eamex said :
“The main idea is to stabilize the electrodes and prevent the deterioration of tin, making the batteries withstand repeated charges. The batteries have a negative electrode that incorporates a tin-coated resin and accumulates lithium ions coming from the positive electrode. The positive electrode is made of silicon and tin and swells while generating the ions.”
So if the guys from Eamex will keep their word, it’s possible to see the old lithium-ion batteries beeing replaced with the new ones in the next few years.
