How a new battery revolution will change your life. “We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun,” Tesla's Elon. Musk mused,- “You don’t have to do anything. It just works, shows up every day, and produces ridiculous amounts of power.” We need to be able to store that energy captured by solar panels. CSMonitor.com
A new generation of super cells promises to reshape the future of energy.

These unique glass chambers allow Argonne researchers to conduct controlled environment testing of lithium-oxygen batteries. Created by Argonne glassblower Joe Gregar, the chambers are modeled after cells being used by Professor Peter Bruce's research group at University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

Argonne materials scientist Swati V. Pol loads an in-situ lithium-ion battery into the low-energy resolution inelastic X-ray (LERIX) system at the Advanced Photon Source. This multi-element X-ray scattering instrument is helping Argonne researchers to understand the fundamental mechanisms that limit the performance of batteries.

The Michigan start-up Sakti3 says its solid-state cells more than double the energy density of today’s best Li-Ion batteries.
How do I take care of a Lithium Ion battery to prolong its life? Should I charge it frequently or drain it fully before charging it?
The Chevrolet Volt's 16 kWh battery can be recharged using a 120V or 240V outlet. The car's lithium-ion battery is based on technology developed at Argonne.

Argonne battery researchers (from left) Khalil Amine, Chris Johnson, Sun-Ho Kang and Mike Thackeray flank a continuously-stirred tank reactor used to produce scaled-up quantities of cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries. Thackeray, Johnson, Amine and Jaekook Kim (not pictured) are co-inventors of a revolutionary cathode material used in the battery that powers GM's Chevrolet Volt.
