IBM with Central Glass and Sidus strike battery rich metals in seawater

International Business Machines Corp on Wednesday said it has come up with a new battery technology that uses materials extracted from seawater and requires no cobalt, as the race to find alternative sources to the expensive mineral intensifies. The materials they are looking at could offer 80% charge in 5 minutes and could have more than 90% energy efficiency.

Depending on the needed resources this could allow for electric cars that dont fuck up the environment

How about a battery that recharges itself.

There should be more research..... as I've pointed out before into furthering nuclear Fussion coupled with world wide wireless energy distribution. Sustainable energy production coupled with no need for batteries in vehicles, homes, etc. Nancy Naynay says. "Oh that can't exist, wireless energy xfer." 1. Tesla was building it and about to test it in practice but, JP morgan stopped funding and tore it down to run wires more control of distribution = profit. 2. How do you think wifi works? Energy is modulated and sent in small amounts on a specific frequency which is turned back into data when read by the phone. 3. It is all about matching the frequency/modulation/phase to the power needed to drive a given device. and a receiver that tune in to that, while minimizing loss at a distance, which currently is the issue is the issue. Not if it exists. 4. One can charge their phone wirelessly, or run it wirelessly on a base, but it has to be a few mill from the source. Greater efficiency is needed in the transmission and reception methods. Nancy Naynay says "Fussion... oh that's so far off." Well it wouldn't be far off if the world said Hey....we have to do this. we all put 1 trillion dollars towards it and an international body together to build it and once the whole system is in place, no power cost for anyone ever. Industry sure. individuals, no. Every government is responsible for maintaining power generation via fusion reactors for the people, as there is virtually no cost for the output obtainable.

At 7 years old, I came up with an idea of a wind turbine mounted in the back of an electric truck. As you drive, the wind going by would charge the batteries. Nobody ever buys my great ideas! 😉

Excellent news, one more nail in the coffin of gas powered vehicles.

As we increase demand for something, innovation follows. I can't even count the number of the apparent right leaning arguments out there that "battery production is bad, so environmental pollution deturant by using batteries changes nothing.. " This of course is another hole in that silly argument.
