New Electrolytes for Rechargeable Lithium-Air Battery with Increased Cycle Life for Silent Watch Applications
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The army requires substantial improvements in battery energy density compared to current lithium-ion and lead acid batteries. The lightweight lithium-air battery has the potential to meet these needs, provided certain material characteristics can be improved, including extended lithium rechargeability, electrolyte stability, decreased air cathode polarization and stable performance at elevated cell operating temperatures. Giner, Inc. (Giner) will use its stable high-voltage electrolyte system together with improved air-electrode design and processing to achieve the cycle life and energy density requirements for silent watch applications. Electrolyte composition and air-side cathode catalyst structure will be optimized for continuous operation of a prototype lithium-air cell operating in air.
