A New Lithium-Metal Battery Takes Flight in Drones

A New Lithium-Metal Battery Takes Flight in Drones | drones | Scoop.it
SolidEnergy Systems, a spin-out from MIT, has developed a battery that it says has double the energy density of current lithium-ion batteries. That means that a battery from SolidEnergy Systems could be half the size of a standard lithium-ion battery and hold the same amount of energy, or it could be the same size as a lithium-ion battery and hold twice as much energy.
