Ion age: why the future will be battery powered

Tuesday 09:54 GMT

The exact process of battery ageing is still a hot research topic, but there are several mechanisms at play that occur when the battery is used or stored.

Rapid cycling of the battery increases wear, particularly if the power demands on the battery are very high, as is the case with electric cars. Charging and using the battery to its extremes also accelerates ageing, such as charging batteries to their maximum and discharging them to zero.
