A next-generation cheaper, lighter and more powerful rechargeable battery for electric vehicles is one step closer to reality. The discovery of a material that maintains a rechargeable sulphur cathode helps to overcome a primary hurdle to building a lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery. Such a battery can theoretically power an electric car three times further than current lithium-ion batteries for the same weight, at a much lower cost, said researchers. Read More
