Crippling Lithium-Ion Battery Flaw Revealed

The first step to solving a problem is diagnosing it, and in this case, a huge step was taken for electric vehicles.

Researchers at Ohio State University discovered that in lithium-ion batteries, lithium-ions accumulate inside a sheet of copper known as the current collector. Lithium-ions should not permanently accumulate on the current collector like this, as they are necessary for battery function, therefore this decreases battery performance, as there will be less lithium-ions available.
