New Electric Car Technology: Thought Batteries Were The Problem?

Phinergy, an Israeli company, are working on a Aluminum/ Air/ Water battery that they say will allow an electric car, by 2017 to travel 1000 miles between fill ups with WATER

New Electric Car Technology drives the uptake of electric cars mainly in the battery area, as the technology of motors, controllers and chargers have been around for a long time, and are pretty much stable...

Lithium Ion is the battery of the moment, as the technology has provided batteries that have fast recharge times, and high capacity, while making them safer than any other battery technology out there.

One of the most interesting and exciting of the new technologies that has come along is Super Capacitors.

They can store more power than batteries of the same size, and offer almost instant charging...

One of the disadvantages of lithium ion batteries is cost, where the SuperCapacitor can beat the price of li-ion batteries by a factor of ten...

If this happens, then 250 mile (400 km) journeys become possible, and the cost of new cars will plummet...

These super capacitors use barium titanate and aluminum oxide to reach high capacity levels that will surpass regular batteries...

Scientists are working on making traditional type battery packs old hat, as they are working on systems that include nanotubes of carbon to store charges at higher levels than today's technology.

But these SuperCaps will not wear out or need recycling at a later date...

Up to twice the amount of charge can be stored over conventional lithium packs, and all with a super fast recharge time, about the same time as refilling your fuel tank!...

All this is happening because designing new electric car technology is at the cutting edge of new types of storage innovations right now

Like these new technologies, the 1000 mile battery: Phinergy drives car by aluminum metal, air, and water 1000 miles - on the road by 2017?

Donald Sadoway: Liquid Metal Batteries - The missing link to renewable energy:


Savng our planet one step at a time is quite easy. Easy Green Living provides information on easy and affordable ways to go green. Including green cleaning, green health, hybrid cars, solar energy, composting, and recycling.


Hybrid cars are using new technology too, and are at at the forefront of the sales race at the moment, because of the Prius and Insight making major inroads into the market.

Significantly improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions for the sake of the environment.

Consider purchasing your First Hybrid Car
