IBM Research has made a discovery that could help eliminate the need for heavy metals in battery production. This would aid environmental protection and eventually transform the long-term sustainability of portable energy production.
John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their development of lightweight lithium-ion batteries, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has announced.
When it comes to recording digital audio in the field, I have a paranoia about batteries. Whenever I let down my guard, Murphy’s Law seems to raise its ugly head. The batteries in the recorder die at precisely the magic moment during an unrepeatable event. How do you avoid
The portable video industry began in the mid-1970s using nickel-cadmium batteries with primitive charging circuits. Enough Ni-Cad batteries for one-day’s use often weighed more than the heavy first-generation portable broadcast camera itself. Today, lithium-ion batteries have improved life dramatically. But on the horizon is a new battery technology — s
