New solid state battery design charges in minutes, lasts for thousands of cycles 

January 8, 2024Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a new lithium metal battery that can be charged and discharged at least 6,000 times more than any other pouch battery cell and can be recharged in a matter of minutes. The research not only describes a new way to make solid state batteries with a lithium metal anode but also offers new understanding into the materials used for these potentially revolutionary batteries.  
According to SEAS this work paves the way for better lithium metal batteries. 
The research is published in Nature Materials.
