A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, has developed the first solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries.
For as long as most of us can remember, alkaline batteries have been the battery of choice in wireless microphones. Good practice was to start each production with a fresh set of batteries to prevent wireless failure. However, the price and environmental costs grew too high and now lithium-ion batteries
Litepanels, a maker of LED lights, and Anton/Bauer, a manufacturer of battery systems, have partnered to release a runtime chart that allows users of Litepanels products to determine how long their lights will operate when paired with Anton/Bauer batteries.
