Scientists solve a magnesium mystery in rechargeable battery performance

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

A Berkeley Lab-led research team has discovered a surprising set of chemical reactions involving magnesium that degrade battery performance even before the battery can be charged up.  The findings could be relevant to other battery materials and could steer the design of next-generation batteries toward workarounds that avoid these newly identified pitfalls. The findings could steer the design of next-gen batteries.

AES team members work with many researchers trying to solve to battery dilemma: a smaller, lighter, stronger, longer lasting battery. Ask how AES’s revolutionary battery testing equipment can take your development to the next level.
