New Aluminum-Ion Battery Cell Is Durable, Fast-Charging, Bendable: Stanford Inventors

Researchers at Stanford University demonstrated a new type of aluminum-ion battery cell last week that is flexible enough to be bent without damaging it. The chemistry team claims its design charges faster, and is both safer and more durable, than today's lithium-ion cells. It could recharge a typical mobile phone in one minute or less, they say.

The new cell can also be recharged up to 7,500 times, its inventors say, compared to perhaps 1,000 times for the lithium-ion batteries used in consumer electronics like mobile phones and tablet computers.

Yingpeng Wu and Ming Gong, chemistry post-doctorate and doctorate students respectively, authored a report in the journal Nature on the new cell, along with other graduate students and chemistry professor Hongjie Dai.
