Overhyped battery claims

Post by Grumble » Thu Jan 13, 2022 6:44 pm

I’m sick of “battery breakthroughs”. Seen lots of uncritical reporting of a new type of sulphur cathode Li ion batteries (some which seemed to suggest these weren’t Li ion batteries at all, which is bizarre). Anyway, the articles seem to be about this, which is a new membrane. It’s good, but it’s literally a couple of test tubes at this point. Let’s hope it goes somewhere, but it’s a long way from even a prototype yet.
