The groundbreaking energy storage is made possible by ditching lithium-ion batteries - used in everything from iPhones to pacemakers - and replacing them with lithium-sulphur batteries.
If you didn't follow all of that scientific lingo, just know that the Australians have patented the new battery and more tests are scheduled.
The lithium-sulphur batteries operate in the same way as regular lithium-ion examples - lithium ions flow between electrodes producing power while not being chemically changed. He said: "The successful manufacture and implementation of Li-S batteries in cars and networks will capture a larger part of the estimated $ 213 billion value chain of Australian lithium, and revolutionize the Australian market for vehicles and will provide all Australians with a cleaner and more reliable energy market". This battery is capable of powering a smartphone for five continuous days.
Guwahati: Monash University researchers in Australia have developed the world's most efficient lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery. Prototype cells for the batteries have been provided by German R&D partners at Fraunhofer Institute. Despite having higher energy densities and being able to power electronics for longer, they are only sometimes used in aircraft and vehicle batteries.
Lithium-sulphur batteries hold the promise of four times the efficiency of current energy storage based on lithium-ion technology, the researchers said.
Ex-Trump aide John Bolton willing to testify in impeachment trial
He said , "I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify". Bolton threw the Senate a curveball on Monday by saying he would testify in a Senate trial if subpoenaed.

How To Watch The Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball Drop Live
NBC's New Year's Eve 2020, "an evening of holiday fun", will air from 10 to 11 p.m. and then 11:30 p.m.to 12:30 a.m. There's no better time to learn a new step than the beginning of a new year.
That inspiration allowed the creation of a bond between particles that accommodates stress and delivers stability not seen in any battery to date.
"Our research team has received more than $2.5 million in funding from government and global industry partners to trial this battery technology in cars and grids from this year, which we're most excited about".
The team says that they've tweaked the design of the sulfur cathodes so that they withstand higher stress loads and won't drop in performance over time.
Associate Professor Matthew Hill says these attractive new performance, combined with reduced manufacturing costs, abundant material supply, ease of processing and reduced environmental footprint, make this new battery design attractive for future applications. from the real world.
"This approach not only favors high performance metrics and long cycle life", Hill said in a statement, "but is also simple and extremely low-priced to manufacture, using water-based processes, and can lead to significant reductions in environmentally hazardous waste".
