  • In conclusion, you can choose to have a lithium iron phosphate/lithium titanate battery that operates extremely well and has a long life thanks to the use of nanoparticles... but what if I told that such battery only has a voltage output of around 2 V yeah, those lead-acid batteries don't look so bad anymore?

    What can nano do for batteries?

  • The same happens with an anode material that is getting a lot of exposure as of late: lithium titanate.

    What can nano do for batteries?

  • There are some companies that are moving away from using graphite as a negative to other materials lithium titanate is a favorite among many.

  • And if I mentioned that, in addition, the lithium titanate has about half the storage capacity of graphite, so the energy density of this great battery is lower than that in your cellphone Li-ion cells?

    What can nano do for batteries?

  • If, instead of calling the graphite/cobalt oxide battery a lithium-ion battery, they had called it a, say, carbon-cobalt battery, today we would be talking about a carbon-manganese battery, a carbon-iron battery, a carbon-nickel battery, a titanate-nickel battery and so on and so forth.

  • Would the fast-charge capability of the titanate anode Enerdel and Altair nano be of any use in a world where even slow charging could be an infrastructure nightmare?

    One battery chemistry to rule them all?

  • The GT uses an array of Nanosafe batteries, by Altairnano — which replace the graphite structures within the traditional lithium-ion cell with nano-engineered titanate materials which are much more effective along several axes.
