Li-metal battery developments

Lithium-metal batteries can hold up to 10 times more charge than lithium-ion batteries but haven’t been commercialised because of a fatal flaw: as they charge and discharge, lithium is deposited unevenly on the electrodes. According to researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago, this means battery life is too short to make them viable, adding the batteries could also short-circuit and catch fire.
