Allegedly, the novelty can accumulate 50% more energy than current batteries of the same size. At the same time, the new batteries use a metal anode, which guarantees the absence of fire or swelling – known problems of ionic energy cells.

Researchers note that new batteries do not require expensive and bulky cooling systems, since heating improves the performance of lithium-metal batteries, unlike lithium-ion ones. This will allow, as expected, to charge and discharge batteries with high power current, which will be relevant for electric vehicles. However, while researchers are in no hurry to bring their brainchild to the market. Therefore, it is too early to talk about the timing of the commercial implementation of lithium metal batteries.
